The Rogue Bore
Tell us about your business?
The Rogue Bore is a geothermal brewery in Taupo. We launched our brewery in November 2019 as New Zealand's first geothermal powered brewery.
What was happening in your business to make you reach out to RightWay?
Things happen pretty quickly in our business. We went from concept through to creating products and being in the market within about three months. We needed somebody who was able to come and support our business incredibly quickly, understand what we were trying to achieve, and help deliver that service for us in terms of the financials and accounting support.
If you were to describe your experience with RightWay so far, what would you say?
Our experience with RightWay has been fantastic. I've worked with Anna (from RightWay) in the past, so it was a natural progression for her to come on board to support us as we started The Rogue Bore. We get to work with our "three A's" - Anna, Ash, and Ange from RightWay, and they all support us in different aspects of our business from strategic planning, management accounting, and also with our bookkeeping and the day-to-day. It's just like having extra members of our team.
What does working with RightWay mean to you?
It means we get to understand some of that background "magic" in the business. When we go into our board meetings now, we can show all the work that RightWay have done and understand it, which is really important.
What would you say to someone who was on the fence about working with RightWay?
If you're on the fence about whether you wanted to engage with somebody like RightWay, they really deliver a different service to what your normal accountant would, and that's the value that we see for our business. So if you're looking for something more, then definitely look at RightWay.
