Buzz Superfood Bar to open Bundy store
WHAT'S that buzzing you ask?
Well it could be the sound of Bundaberg's newest health food bar.
Buzz Superfood Bar has announced plans to open a store on Bourbong St, making it the second in the state.
Owner Chris Beasley said he decided to expand the Gladstone-based business after the success of the first bar, which opened in Gladstone 14 months ago.
"I feel Bundaberg doesn't have a store like this," Mr Beasley said.
"The food we offer is unprocessed and in a natural state, with 95% organic."
Mr Beasley said he believed there was a strong demand for the healthy option in Bundaberg.
"One of the reasons I decided to open there was because of the fat capital of Australia name the town has," he said.
"It all stems from going to the gym myself and trying to be fit and healthy."
The food bar in Gladstone:
The father-of-one said the bar would suit gym-goers after their early-morning workout or those who needed a fast breakfast before heading to work.
"We chose that location because of the proximity to gyms and businesses," Mr Beasley said.
"People can pop in from 7am and grab a healthy breakfast rather than the eggs and bacon, which we don't do.
"We have a variety of foods such as acai bowls, protein smoothies, cold pressed juices and healthy protein pancakes topped with fruit."
He said the layout would consist of a bar area as well as an outdoor dining area.
"It would be great for small groups such as mums and bubs to meet up for something healthy after their 10am workout," Mr Beasley said.
The gym enthusiast said the idea of the food bar stemmed from his own passion and cravings for healthy options after hiting the gym. He said the Bundaberg store would be run by a local woman who has a love for vegan and healthy foods.
