Readers get a great deal as Hank’s turns it on for birthday

IT IS past the teething stage and well and truly out of nappies, and Hank's Kitchen at South Grafton is this week celebrating its first birthday.

Manager Sharon Lentfer said she had been blown away by how much the business had grown in just 12 months.

"It's exceeded all our expectations," Ms Lentfer said.

"But when we tell customers that, they tell us they don't know why it wouldn't - they just love it."

Hank's Kitchen started in Grafton in 1979 and has remained in the family since, now owned by Aaron and Chrissy Hancock.

While tastes have slightly changed over the years, Ms Lentfer said the vanilla slice and cheese and bacon pies were among the most popular purchases for South Graftonians.

"The south side community have been so supportive of us and we've just watched it grow," she said.

This week the shop is celebrating its birthday but the big party day will be held on Friday.

Local radio station 2GF will broadcast from the shop from 8-9am and 11.30am-12.30pm.

There will be masses of giveaways and vouchers to be won and Coca-Cola has come on board to help with the celebration.

Head to Hank's Kitchen on Bent St (next to the United service station) on Friday to join in the fun.
