For Business Person of the Year winner Sonya Moulang it's more about community than coffee when it comes to running Bar Centrale on Queen.

The cafe owner said she was still in shock days after the Campbelltown Local Business Awards presentation night.

"There were so many other amazing people up there as finalists, and many more deserving of this award," she said.

Ms Moulang said she considered herself lucky to have been able to build a network of friends and business associates, as well as cafe regulars, that "love to go above and beyond".

"I've been called 'the enabler' through the cafe as I've put so many people in contact with other services, and created a community that's open, willing to help out, and loves Campbelltown," she said.

Ms Moulang said another strength of the cafe was the fact they asked their customers for feedback and were not afraid to try new things.

"We want to know not just what they thought of their meals but what they want to see from us too. They help me decide what's on the menu," she said.

Ms Moulang praised the business awards and encouraged others to get involved. "It's a great way to evaluate your own and the team's performance over the year and see where you can still improve," she said.

"It's also an amazing night out! A chance to thank the team for all their hard work and determination.

"Even if you don't win the honour of being a finalist is a great feeling."
