Ever since she  was a little  girl, Claudia had  dreamed of becoming a celebrity chef. If it was food-related, she was into  it: by the  time  she  finished high school she  had  two food blogs, a YouTube channel, an appearance on Junior Masterchef and  even  a semi-successful Instagram under her  belt  – page  after page  of sumptuous plates shot under perfect lighting.

While Claudia dreamed of culinary school and  opening a three-star restaurant, her  parents had  other plans, insisting that she go to university instead. Reluctantly, Claudia enrolled at the  University  of Sydney in 2016 and found her Commerce degree to be surprisingly enjoyable. CLAW1001, of course, was her  favourite subject, and it wasn’t long after finishing  the course (with a highly respectable Distinction grade) that she began to think about how she  might  put  the  skills she  had  learned to good  use.

Claudia knew from  her studies in BUSS1001 the importance of spotting business opportunities, and  it wasn’t long before she realised that a golden opportunity was right in front of her. “The food on campus is terrible”, she  said to herself. Why not  combine her  love of food with her newfound love of business? After applying Porter’s five forces and  conducting a careful SWOT analysis, Claudia was convinced that there was a market on

campus for a food truck selling quality  treats students really wanted to eat (and photograph): gourmet dumplings, proper hand-made sushi, cold-drip coffee, artisanal cronuts and  deconstructed Nutella sandwiches.

After a frantic night  of writing recipes and  drawing up business plans, Claudia approached the  University  to ask about how she  might  get started with her  idea  and  was told  that she  would  first need to obtain a licence to sell food on campus from  the  Sydney University Students Society. Later that week, Claudia met with Paige, the society’s president, who passed a thick  pile of paper across the  table to her. “The annual license fee is here”, Paige said, pointing to a page  in the  contract. “Read  the  rest of the  terms and  conditions if you like, when you’re happy sign it and  you’re  good  to go”.

Claudia knew from  her CLAW1001 studies that it was important to always read contracts, so she  quickly took  a look at the terms and  conditions. She noticed a clause on page 27 of the contract, which  was written in very small but  bold  font:

Clause 84(a)(3): All food  license holders serving coffee must use only Scadente brand coffee beans, which shall be purchased from the Sydney University Students Society at a price which the Society sets  from time to time.

“What’s this about? I was hoping to use my own suppliers for coffee”, asked Claudia, launching into an enthusiastic lecture about the benefits of single-origin, mountain-grown organic beans.

“Oh, I’m glad you asked, because this  is quite important” replied Paige. “We have a relationship with the supplier and  this  enables us to pass on to you the best possible prices.”

“So there’s no room to change that term?” “No”, Paige said firmly. “It’s for your own benefit and  ensures that we provide the  best possible coffee to our  students”.

Sceptically, Claudia looked at the  price list that the Society was charging for coffee and  to her  surprise thought it was fairly reasonable. She signed the  contract with a shrug, musing  that her unique cold-drip preparation methods would  set her  apart from  the  competition in any case.

The next  few weeks were an exciting time  for Claudia as she  decorated her  food truck, took  promotional photos and  launched a successful viral social  media campaign via the  USYD Rants  page  on Facebook. Realising  she

would  need more than one chef to make her  vision a success, she  contacted Jimmy,  an acquaintance who she had  met on Junior Masterchef some years ago, and  offered him a job at her new food truck. Excited at the prospect of finally holding down  a stable job,  Jimmy called Claudia to discuss the position.

“So it’s just like, cooking right?”, Jimmy asked. “I’m hopeless at serving customers.”

“I just need you to help out”, replied Claudia. She knew the importance of ensuring all of her  contracts were in writing, and  later that day sent Jimmy an employment contract to sign based on a template she  had  found online. In the  contract, under the  heading “Employment Duties”, Claudia had  written:

Food preparation and other  related  duties.

Jimmy signed the  contract without looking  at it and  sent it back  to Claudia the next day.

Before long, the day of the  grand opening of CFC – Claudia’s Food  Corporation – finally arrived. With great fanfare, Claudia and  Jimmy set up the  food truck underneath the  tree at the  front of the Abercrombie Building.

The coffee had  been brewing all night, the dumplings were juicy and  freshly steamed; the  sushi  rolled to perfection. The cronuts were piping  hot and  the smell wafted up Codrington Street, rapidly  drawing a large crowd.

Claudia beamed with delight. It was going to be a good  day.

Claudia seeks your advice on the following. Answer each  question separately. Focus on contract law issues only. (5 marks each)

  1. The grand opening of CFC has gone spectacularly well. By 11:15am, the  queue had  stretched all the way to the  Merewether Building and  was showing no signs of abating. While Jimmy worked the  kitchen, Claudia was flat out  serving  customers. Checking her  Facebook, Claudia saw her  first negative social media post complaining about the  length of the  queue, and  was horrified.

“Jimmy!”, shouted  Claudia. “Come out here and  help me serve, we have enough food prepared!” “But…I don’t deal  well with…customers…”, mumbled Jimmy. He had  always been nervous around large

crowds. Flustered, Claudia shrieked “I’ll double your pay for today if you just get out here, have you seen the  line?!” Jimmy stepped out  to the  counter reluctantly and, with the  two of them working together, the length of the line began to drop. At the  end  of the  day, however, Claudia has refused to pay Jimmy the  extra money promised, saying “he did a lousy job anyway”. Jimmy is furious.

 

  1. A week  after the grand opening, Claudia received a letter from  the  Sydney University  Students Society advising  her  that due  to an unexpected budget shortfall caused by a decline in Society membership, the price of Scadente brand coffee beans was increasing to triple its original  price per kilogram.

Claudia has called Paige to demand an explanation but  has simply been told  “the contract is the

contract – you’re doing  good  enough business anyway so you can  afford it”.

 

  1. Over the  next  week  or two, CFC became a campus sensation. Soon,  Claudia was thinking about the possibility of expanding to other University  campuses. Claudia’s friend Manuela  has approached her about the  possibility of setting up an outlet of CFC at the  University’s Cumberland  Campus. Excited at this opportunity, Claudia entered into a contract with Manuela in which  Manuela would  receive Claudia’s secret recipes and  the  right  to operate a CFC outlet at Cumberland, in exchange for a fraction of Manuela’s profits. The Cumberland outlet of CFC opens to great success a few weeks later.

One day soon afterwards, however, the  usual  11am line-up outside CFC on main campus has vanished. Confused, Claudia checks social  media and  sees a flurry of Instagram posts and  tweets about the  new campus sensation, MCM – Manuela’s Culinary  Monopoly, a new food truck set up just outside the  Law School Building. The line stretches all the  way over  the  City Road footbridge to the  SciTech  Library. MCM’s food offerings are  suspiciously similar  to Claudia’s. In a rage, Claudia stormed over to MCM to find Manuela  smiling and  greeting customers there. “How could you DO this  to me?!”,  she  shouted.

Manuela  simply shrugged. “Well, I read your contract carefully and  there’s nothing there to say I

couldn’t do this”, she  said with a smile.

  1. In an effort to cut  costs now that her  daily patronage has shrunk, Claudia has stopped using Scadente brand coffee beans and  has switched to her  preferred brand of single-origin, mountain-grown organic beans which  were much cheaper (and taste much better anyway, according to Claudia). In response, the Sydney University  Students Society  has terminated the contract with Claudia and  revoked her licence. “My dreams are  shattered, and  all over a brand of coffee!”, moans Claudia to you. “Surely they can’t do this?”
