Happy Birthday To Us!
If you were driving past the dealership on the night of Tuesday July 19th you may have noticed we were glowing green. July 19th marked a very special milestone as we celebrated five years of Sharp Motor Group Tweed Heads! If you know anything about our Dealer Principal, he knows how to throw a party, so we knew we’d be in for something pretty spectacular.
The night was a celebratory ceremony to recognise Sharp Motor Group’s employees and corporate partners for their part in Sharp’s success, and to enjoy some of life’s greatest pleasures being great food, great wine and great company. Our Sharp Dining Hall was hosted by My Kitchen Rules 2013 Winner Dan Mulheron who prepared a selection of delicious entrees, a main and dessert for all to enjoy.
Following from their MKR success, Dan & Steph now run a successful cafe – EAT at Dan & Steph’s, located in Hervey Bay. Our specially prepared menu consisted of crostini of Noosa spanner crab; Dan’s sausages and Japanese Fried Chicken for canapes, for main course, a succulent 14 hour slow cooked beef short-rib and for dessert, bay poached pear with mascarpone creme.

Trevor Stanmore from Pernod Ricard Australia carefully matched a beverage selection to match each course, including a tasty Havana Club cocktail on arrival, Stoneleigh and St Hugo wines, as well as an Absolut Pear dessert cocktail. The fresh juices in these cocktails were provided by the wonderful team at Grove Juice.
During the evening, we reflected on the past five years which has seen 2,244 Holden, 965 Honda, 1,408 Kia, 529 Suzuki and 1,986 Used Vehicles find their new homes through us, with lots of happy customers along the way. Some of our current staff have been with us since day one, some are brand new, and others somewhere in between. The owners of Sharp MG, Remo and Stephen, have set out to create an environment where people can grow and develop to be the best they can be.
We’re fortunate to have a great team at Sharp Motor Group who help to create a friendly and supportive environment for both staff and customers. See below for some more images which pretty accurately sum up this fantastic celebratory event!
