Marketing And Communications Manager - Hospitality

Marketing and Communications Manager

We are launching three new exciting new concepts Harvey’s Hot Sandwiches, Ruse Bar and Brasserie and Threefold Pastry which will open in early 2020 as part of the newly built Parramatta Square redevelopment. Located underneath the Square’s first completed office tower – 4 Parramatta Square, our three brands will be among the first to open in the Square’s 6,000 square metre world class public domain and will be amongst some of Sydney’s best hospitality names in the precinct – we’ll be bringing new flavours, experiences and options to Western Sydney.

Harvey’s Hot Sandwiches

Harvey’s Hot Sandwiches is a retro inspired sandwich joint known for its big personality, quality and ‘more is more’ attitude. Our sandwiches are made hot to order, generously filled and pack a punch with hearty, bold flavours.

At Harvey’s, we’re all about optimising the essence of big, hot, tasty, unforgettable sandwiches, a larger than life philosophy and an energetic spirit.

Threefold Pastry

We’ll be bringing uninterrupted indulgence to the West, with a range of sweet and savoury filled croissants, pies, flatbread sandwiches (folds) and great quality coffee at Threefold – the name celebrated by paying homage to the threefold pastry technique in croissant making.

Artisanal but distinctly modern with an open studio feel,  a working bespoke stone top bench, chefs on show and a working pastry shop experience for a glimpse into the world of the pastry making process.

Refinement, taste and playfulness drive the character of the experience and shine on beautifully made, quality products that are expertly prepared
