And the winner of the Gold Coast Family Business Award is…Diego’s!
I am delighted to announce that Diego’s was presented with the Gold Coast Business Excellence FAMILY BUSINESS award for October 2021.
Diego’s was founded more than 25 years ago on the Gold Coast by my husband Colin and I when I missed the authentic tastes of my childhood growing up in California.
We are a family business through and through. From the early days when my parents would visit us from the US on ‘working holidays’ to help us expand the business to now with our daughter Haley and her partner Nick, who both play integral roles in our success.
The Diego’s family isn’t just limited to kin, many of our staff have been around for 5 years or more. It may sound cliché, but we really are like a big extended family. We support one another beyond the workplace and it’s amazing to see our people grow with the business over time.’ Deann Thomson
