Kytons has been excited to be involved in the Marion City Council’s Edwardstown Revitalisation Project in 2021. We have received an award (and morning tea) for being in business for more than 25 years, had a visit from the Mayor Kris Hanna who took a tour through the production facility and had a Kytons themed stobie pole decorated in Lindsay Ave. The stobie pole features lamingtons on one side and hot cross buns on the other – just perfect.
Mayor Kris Hanna came to visit in March, bringing with him a basket of goodies for our staff to enjoy, a beautiful trophy to display in our shop and an eagerness to check out where the lamingtons are made and to meet Larry the Lamington. Sharon and Darren were delighted to show the Mayor through the Kytons factory and Marion Council kindly put together a short video about the lamington production process.
Kytons production facility and retail shop are located right behind Castle Plaza Shopping Centre which we find makes doing lots of little jobs really easy – visiting the post office, doing the banking, grabbing lunch or a few groceries after work. So Edwardstown really works for us as a place to do business.
The Edwardstown Employment Precinct is the economic engine room of the City of Marion economy. It is host to over 4,500 jobs, over 1,700 businesses and provides $1bn into the South Australia Economy and The Marion City Council is currently running a revitalistion project for the area, including greening the area, acknowledging long term businesses, installing vibrant murals and stobie poles and a new Edwardstown Brand will be launched soon – a process that Kytons owner Sharon has also been involved in helping develop along with a group of other Edwardstown businesses.
