Bundaberg to get a bit of the Gladstone business' buzz

Busy nights for Buzz Superfood Bar owner

His brand of healthy food has been a hit in Gladstone since it opened 14 months ago and "the next logical step is to go into Bundaberg".

"There's been a really good response in Gladstone because it's the only thing like it here," he said.

"We've done a little research and there's nothing like this in Bundaberg.

"I thought we would bring out the concept down there and we have secured a great spot in the main street."

Unlike the Gladstone shop that he shares with the Healthy Nut on Toolooa St, Buzz Superfood Bar will have its own store in Bundaberg.

"With our own store we will be able to do pretty much whatever we want, but in saying that, it has been good to work with the Healthy Nut," he said.

"People can expect acai bowls, wholefood smoothies, raw treats, vegan lunch options, protein pancakes and nice cream.

"It's going to be run by a really passionate local girl I know.

"I'll be down every couple of weeks to make sure things are ticking along."

He said he had four weeks free rent and was trying to get Buzz Superfood up before the four weeks were up.
