By Sarah Stowe | 17 Nov 2017 View comments

Do you have a passion for healthy food and an ambition to own a prosperous business? Well, read on, because one franchise has plans to capitalise on the health and fitness industry and carve its own niche in the market.

This sector has been showing exponential growth in recent years but while there is an abundance of gyms and fitness resources, the team at this franchise chain believes the health food industry is untried.

So, it’s been leading the charge and says the rapid growth of its business speaks volumes about Australians’ demand for its concept.

Nutrition Station is about to open an outlet in Southbank, Brisbane, with a new menu, new processes in-house and a quicker service model.

It has been working hard to continually improve its customer experience and has added a tonne of flavour to its menu. Truly healthy food and smoothie options are 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.

Nutrition Station has also increased its order turnaround time and created a welcoming environment instore. Its new store model has a “black label” fit out and atmosphere, and competes with the best-looking cafes in the industry.

These moves have helped the chain to grow its sales and repeat business, and are part of its preparation to become the leader in Australia’s quick service, health food space and to develop its own market category.

And behind the scenes the company recently expanded its head office team, taking on new staff members with a wealth of franchising and business knowledge who will help drive the growth of the brand and offer greater support to franchisees.

In addition to the strong brand, support and proven operational procedures, franchisees benefit from its buying power with distributors and suppliers and valuable marketing experience.

Nutrition Station has already selected a range of sites across Australia for those who want to take advantage of its franchise concept. The expert team will also help franchisees locate other sites and manage lease negotiation.

Plenty of training is provided for the new franchisee. Indeed, as a franchisee, you will never be on your own. You will have direct access to each department: including marketing, finance, even the head chef!

The total cost for setting up your own franchise will vary according to the site but it ranges from $280,000 to $450,000 + GST. This price includes everything you’ll need to open the store: the franchise fee, preparation of franchise agreements, training and store opening, design and store fit out, equipment purchases and opening inventory.

Of course you will also need to have working capital available for the business in its early stages, to fund local area marketing and other costs.
