With the health and fitness industry growing exponentially, a NU Healthy Cafe may be on the menu if you are looking for a new business opportunity.

Australians now spend $8.5 billion on fitness every year. But if this isn’t matched with a healthy diet, the formula does not work. And, that’s where the NU Healthy Cafe concept comes in.

Consumers are becoming increasingly wise about health and nutrition and many are changing their purchasing patterns. But while there is an abundant supply of gyms and fitness resources, the health food industry is still in its infancy.

Many fast food chains are now including healthy options on their menus, but the already fast growth of NU Healthy Cafe as a brand shows there’s still a big gap in the market and speaks volumes about the demand for its health food concept. In the past, health food was often perceived as dull, but NU Healthy CafŽ’s extensive menu of great tasting products – approved by nutritionists and including innovative choices such as protein shakes, protein pancakes and NU bowls – keeps happy customers returning time and time again.

And, its business model is also putting a smile on its franchisees’ faces, especially those who want to help others achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Firstly, the model ensures multiple revenue streams for franchisees. Through its in-house dining, NU Catering or NU meals (an in-house, fresh meal plan service), franchisees can reach their customers at the cafe, at home, and at work. Its menu options have been designed to help customers reach their health and fitness goals, whether they are trying to gain muscle mass, tone, lose weight or just maintain general health and wellbeing.

And, as a young franchise brand, NU Healthy Cafe claims to be nimble, energetic and all about leveraging itself through technology, innovation and speed to market.

NU Healthy Cafes have also been carefully crafted to create a welcoming in store environment and to compete with the best-looking cafes in the industry.

When you buy a franchise with NU, all you need to do is to undertake its NU Franchisee Training Program. It will do the rest. Your business will be set up for you from design to construction and merchandising, ready for you to start trading with full operational support in the inception period.

And, as a franchisee, you will never be on your own. You will have direct access to each of NU Healthy Cafes’ departments, including marketing, finance, head chef and more.

The total cost for setting up your own NU Healthy Cafe franchise will vary from site to site depending on size of the location and other considerations. A new NU Healthy Cafe store will cost between $280,000 – $450,000 + GST. This price includes franchise fee, preparation of franchise agreements, training and store opening, design and store fit out, equipment purchases and opening inventory.

It is also recommended that you have working capital available to the business is in its early stages, to fund local area marketing and other costs. NU Healthy Cafe has already selected a range of available sites across Australia for those who want to take advantage of its franchise concept.
