"Suka employs all local staff and has created a culture of inclusiveness and growth. As both locations get very busy during the first shift, founders noticed that some of their staff didn’t have time to have their breakfast. So they have been providing breakfast delivered to the venue early morning to make sure all their staff has eaten before the breakfast peak hours. The team also receives 2% bonus when they achieve breaking point sale."
