Trevor Whitworth - Proprietor of "The Red Door Pizzeria - Buninyong"
Trevor has always been passionate about quality food and has a long held vision of using locally produced products and a simple restaurant outlet, so that he could provide healthy, quality takeaway food for both the local community and visitors to the character filled town of Buninyong.
Originally a country bred man from Horsham, he took up residence in Ballarat a few years ago but has long been drawn to the rustic beauty of Buninyong. The district is rich in quality products and producers of highly regarded goods ranging from fruits and vegetables, wine, cheese and smallgoods. With community concern for clean, healthy food for families, Trevor feels that it is valuable to our local communities to provide the healthiest and most convenient food possible to fulfil a growing trend sweeping Victoria. He now lives locally and enjoys relaxing by the fire in his character filled mud-brick "castle" with his partner, Odette, their three dogs and the Red Door Chooks!
Luke has been working hard with Trevor since the beginning in 2013. Whether it was sanding the timber tables, building the unique wine boxes, planting the garden, renovating the wood shed and so much more.... Luke has enjoyed the challenges. He is truly Trevor's right hand man, which translates into being adept at doing anything or everything so that Trev can occasionally take a break.
Luke has just completed his Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts at Federation Uni and is hoping to pursue a career in this field whilst enjoying honing his carpentry skills with odd jobs around town. In the meantime, he is learning all the crafts of running a Pizzeria, whether it is churning the ice-cream, brewing the Onion Jam, or peeling 40kg of tomatoes for the Relish.... No job is out of bounds to Luke who will never be far away from his favourite workplace.
