For Crisp Salad’s Ted Tolfree, the success of the business has been built on hard work and the right people doing what they do best.

Growth means finding partners

Crisp Salad began as the dream for Ted Tolfree and Shey Newitt when they arrived from New York – a quick, healthy and fresh lunchtime option for the corporate crowd on Melbourne’s Collins Street.

In two years, they’ve grown their idea to four stores – with more on the horizon – using a mixture of architects, designers and technology consultants.“

I think it’s vital to have a group of people around you who are going to assist in your business,” says Ted.“

We have some fantastic partners. We’ve got some great designers, some great architects, some great chefs. And we see Telstra as a great partner, looking after our technology.”

It’s a sentiment that’s being felt more and more by businesses across the country, particularly when it comes to technology. A recent PwC report, Small Business: Digital Growth, states that more than $49 billion of output could be delivered by making better use of technology.

For Crisp Salad, that meant getting in someone who can take care of the tech so they could do their thing.
