Q. How long have you been working at Mister Minit?
A. I have been working for the Mister Minit brand for nearly 8 years now and have been in franchise for 2 years. With Papamoa being my second franchise shop, I have had this shop for a month now.
Q. What do you enjoy most about your job?
A. Everything I guess! It is what makes us here at Mister Minit be known as the "Jack of all trades". It is a multi skill business where we are qualified and trained to be a professional behind the counter we are at. From key cutting to shoes repairs, and Watch batteries to engraving, we are here to help. Personally I would say I enjoy making a difference in people's lives by helping solve their daily problems because we are "real people fixing problems".
Q. What is great about having Mister Minit Papamoa located at Papamoa Plaza?
A. Mister Minit Papamoa's objective is to help our local community through our services and Papamoa Plaza is a great local friendly shopping center that provides a perfect place for all the people to come to. While having Mister Minit Papamoa located inside the Plaza, it is convenient for the shoppers to get their things done while they shop around the plaza itself, for example getting a spare car key done while the customer has a cup of coffee with a friend. Mister Minit Papamoa is quite easy to find as we are just located near the food court and the customer service desk.
Q. What’s your favourite thing to do in the region when you're not working?
A. If I'm not working, I prefer to be fishing if the weather permits or cleaning my car. But I also enjoy exploring the beautiful Bay of Plenty region. For example taking a walk on Papamoa Beach or hiking Mount Maunganui.
Q. Where do you like to shop or eat at Papamoa Plaza?
A. I personally support all the businesses inside the Plaza. I like how the retailers and the workers have a friendly approach towards everyone.
