For now we’re focused on expanding in Suva and then we’ll see where that takes us,” Ms Tuiloma said.

Rotuma For Tuiloma
Felisha Hazelman Tuiloma

Felisha Hazelman Tuiloma is the managing partner of The Rotisserie, well known for its roasting goodness. The eatery opened in Laucala during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

This did not seem like good timing because sales dropped. To survive, the company diversified into deliveries, catering for family functions, and supplying to medical workers who were working during the pandemic.

“For now we’re focused on expanding in Suva and then we’ll see where that takes us,” Ms Tuiloma said.


Viber Group

The Savusavu native set up a Viber group that brought in 1000 members within a week.

Seventeen weeks later, the Viber group now has 17,492 members.

“The group is effective and it keeps us busy. I am rarely on social media, my whole focus is on Viber because I control it.”
