A NEW Thai takeaway food business opened in Albany this week and owners Stuart and Fon Leckie have promised it will deliver cuisine as authentic as possible to customers.
Good Day Thai Food, located between South Coast Highway and Albany Highway opposite Bunnings, traded for the first time on Tuesday.
The Weekender spoke to the Leckies ahead of their opening and the pair said they were nervous and excited to get the show on the road.
“We thought about it for a bit and we saw an opportunity,” Mr Leckie said.
“Whenever people come over for tea, everyone loves Fon’s food.
“And there’s only one other Thai food place here and it’s not open for lunch.
“So we saw an opportunity and a way to give us both work.”
The Leckies took over the old Muzz Buzz building two months ago and it’s been all go since then to meet their opening night deadline.
The Leckies bring a mixed work experience to the business, with Mr Leckie formerly a teacher and Ms Leckie a cook and previous business owner in Thailand.
Ms Leckie owned a beauty salon five years ago called Good Day; hence, the inspiration for the name of their new enterprise.
It will trade Monday to Saturday, 10am to 3pm for lunch and 5pm to 8pm for dinner.
