Start-up Business Award
Carlyssa Birkbeck and Jared Lane from The Temple Boutique Spa, Albany were very happy to learn their hard work had earned them the Start-up Business Award for 2016. Carlyssa, who grew up watching her father run successful businesses, said she was well-prepared for the long hours and stress of starting a new business, and thanked Jared for his support – and carpentry expertise.
Together they have transformed an 1891 heritage church building into a thriving boutique spa, that now employs 19 staff. This award was sponsored by GWN7.
