The MBCA Outstanding Business Award The Service Industry was won by NEW HEAVEN INDIAN RESTAURANT, receiving a trophy from the MBCA and an advertising package of $400-00. The South Eastern Times and 5 THE FM each contributing $200-00. The Service Industry Category this year included a wide variety of businesses and all were again worthy winners the panel said.
This is the second time New Heaven Restaurant has won this category, taking out the title last year just a few months after opening in Millicent. New Heaven has been a welcome addition to the cuisine of Millicent and their service extends to all customers. A four year old’s birthday celebrated at the restaurant recently included a cake, a sparkler for the table and happy birthday played through out the restaurant speakers system. Included in the service were warmed towels to sponge off the chocolate cake.
On receiving the award, Sukchain Singh thanked the community for supporting he and his wife since their opening in Millicent and said because of that support they are now able to plan a second restaurant which will open in Mt Gambier later this year. He assured everyone they have made Millicent home and intend to stay because of the wonderful support and friendship they have received.
