Their new store was opened in central
Wodonga in April and is an exciting new
venture for the pair of 32-year-old health
enthusiasts who grew up in the region.

healthy food was available all day long," said

The young entrepreneurs are looking forward
to developing their menu as time goes on and
are still in the very early stages of managing a
new business, working with and juggling chef
rosters and coping with 14 hour shifts.
"There's a lot we want to do here," Mr
"We've only just opened so word isn't quite
out yet so our trade is up and down. Into the
future we want to develop our menu's and
work on building our evening trade as we are
open until 9pm every day.
"We haven't done a lot of advertising or
marketing yet -- it's only our first month."
Nutrition Station is ideally located on the
corner of High Street and Stanley Street and is
open and airy with a vibrant but casual vibe. It
offers free wifi for customers and a seating area
where laptops can be plugged into power.

get a gym or cardio session and support a
healthy lifestyle with good eating -- this was a
driving factor in purchasing the business," Mr
"We believe in our products and want people
to know how beneficial healthy eating can be
