Meet Paul and Dylan from the Apollo Bay Hotel, Victoria

This week, we shared a schooner, pint - or whatever you call it where you’re from - with Paul and Dylan from Apollo Bay Hotel, right in the heart of Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. Driving the Great Ocean Road is a rite of passage for many, and this award-winning hotel offers traditional pub dining with seasonal offerings, and a range of CCEP Australia beers and spirits, as well as a wide range of Coca-Cola beverages to quench your thirst.

But it’s not about the range of beverages on offer, it’s about the people.

With their country hospitality, you’re treated like a mate the moment you walk in.  The team has battled quite a bit with pandemics and restrictions, but their resolve to overcome and push ahead is testament to their commitment to their community.

For Paul, the next 12 months will see a greater focus on the team, including training, product knowledge and support to help them grow. “Now is the time to stand on the roof and shout – ‘this is what we’re doing’ and come and check us out and have a beverage with us.”

For Dylan, the support CCEP Australia offered in 2021 was appreciated, in particular our licensed representative Amanda and Exchange Team representative Cian, who share their knowledge and expertise within our spirits’ range, and who brought in new products which are now part of Apollo Bay’s regular line up including Roku, Haku and Makers Mark.  

“The service from CCEP has been brilliant,” Paul said, adding that out of all the companies he deals with, “CCEP Australia is the best for discussing, planning, executing, and delivering. CCEP always delivers.”

It’s something CCEP Australia is really proud of, its partnerships with its customers.

So, if you’re making the drive along the Great Ocean Road, and you fancy a chat and a cold beverage, drop by Apollo Bay Hotel and say hello to Paul and Dylan.
