Are you thinking about opening or expanding a café, small bar or restaurant in the Blue Mountains?

We partnered with Service NSW and the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner to launch the Easy to do Business service in the Blue Mountains, on 28 February 2019.

Through one online portal you can receive step-by-step guidance and support across local, state and federal government requirements, to open and grow your business.

Easy to do Business is free of charge and gives you peace of mind by letting you know upfront the time and effort involved. 

Supporting and growing our local business economy is a priority for Blue Mountains City Council.
