Frankston’s Spice Club has received the first extended outdoor dining permit from Frankston City Council, allowing it to begin preparations for reopening now the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
“The permit means The Spice Club, along with other hospitality businesses across Frankston City, can begin the process to create a safe and welcoming outdoor dining experience for their customers once COVID-19 restrictions lift,” the council said in a statement. “We will be working closely with owners Ashish and Rajamin in the coming weeks to make sure they are ready and raring to go.
“The Spice Club’s application is one of the first to be processed as part of the $500,000 funding we received to support local eateries to get back to business as we move towards a COVID normal. Council has fast-tracked our usual approval times for outdoor dining permit applicants and we were able to give them the happy news just three business days after receiving their application.”
The Nepean Highway restaurant has also applied for a $5000 State Government enhanced outdoor dining grant to help furnish its planned outdoor space.
