Ben Cobbold shares that this is a venture that has been in the works for a while and the concept surrounding 'Ben and Jack's' began a whole year ago. Ben and Jack's, the brainchild of the two young brothers, was created due to their passion for frozen delights, the ocean, and an active lifestyle.

"It's all about friendly faces and chill vibes. I want to help upskill my mates and the community by creating job opportunities for them. This can be a side hustle where they get a taste of the working world," Ben shares. 

As Ben takes the lead on this endeavour, Jack will follow closely behind and is already helping out on weekends and after school.
