If you’ve always wanted to run your own cafe business but don’t have the experience under your belt, then Zack Khalil’s story is a must read.

“There was a vacant position right next to Fitness First,” says the Nutrition Station Miranda (New South Wales) franchisee.

“We were looking at opening up our own cafe there.”

The Miranda franchise is his first, but he’s been involved now for three years.

“I’ll be honest, it was probably the hardest things we ever did. I was pretty scared going in there with no cafe experience,” he admits

Watch his journey now:


Nutrition Station is a leader in the healthy food sector and is pioneering the way to make a healthy lifestyle accessible to all.

Starting out in 2012 as a kiosk offering protein shakes, it is now a sit-in cafŽ model with breakfast, lunch and dinner options. That’s almost 30 full-service cafŽs operating in just five years.

From high protein pancakes, to organic coffee, superfood smoothies and NU Bowls, the brand is constantly innovating.

Nutrition Station offers a unique home meal service (NuMeals) cooked fresh in stores and delivered directly to consumers. The model truly offers a unique selling point allowing franchisees to expand their business beyond the four walls of a cafŽ.

The franchisor has also made key tech improvements to website and online stores as well as data collection and order fulfilment efficiency. Franchisees benefit from training within a company cafe, ongoing support from the franchisor, and leverage national and local marketing campaigns to target consumers.

And expanding into new markets is in Nutrition Station’s DNA, and the franchisor is looking for individuals with a passion for new business concepts, exploiting new territory and growing with a team of like-minded stakeholders.

Catering towards the ever-growing demands for health food options, Nutrition Station is fast becoming the go to local health food cafŽ. With numerous stores still to open over the remainder of 2017, now’s the time to lock down your territory.
