Bright Brewery will have the right recipe for expansion after receiving a Victorian Government Grow Your Business grant.
On the 25th May 2009 Small Business Minister Joe Helper announced the award-winning regional brewer – one of seven brewers on Victoria’s North East Brewers’ Trail – would receive $10,500 from the highly successful grant program.
“The firm will use this Grow Your Business funding to research its plans for expansion, firstly by strategically reviewing its current operations and then by creating a business plan under the guidance of a specialist advisor. If realised, these plans will see new jobs created in brewing, distribution and hospitality, and may include a new facility offering an educational culinary and beer appreciation experience – a fantastic addition to Bright’s tourism experiences.
The Victorian Government has provided more than $3.6 million in Grow Your Business grants to Victorian small businesses since February 2007.
Grow Your Business grants are available to eligible businesses and associations for:
• Business Development Plans – 50 per cent of the cost, up to $7500;
• Business Strategic Reviews – 75 per cent of the cost, up to $4000; and
• Group Programs and Network Programs – 75 per cent of the cost, up to $15,000.
