The health food buzz sweeping Perth continues to gain momentum, with Health Freak Café Lounge recently opening its newest outlet in Floreat.
The Health Freak Café Lounge franchise has secured the space for its newest outlet at the Floreat Forum dining precinct, neighbouring a number of other food retailers including The Sushi Sushi Train, Davvero Café e Cucina, V-Burger Bar and soon to be opening Thai Tation and Floreat Market.
The full line retail shop comprises a modern dining area, large service counter, full line kitchen and licensed bar area.
The Health Freak Café franchise is one of Perth’s largest healthy food operators, specialising in clean eating meal options. The Floreat outlet marks the franchise’s extension into the beverage scene, with a fully licensed bar serving organic liquor.
CBRE’s Richard Cash and Adrian Morabito, who negotiated the lease on behalf of APIL, said the deal highlighted increasing activity in the food and beverage sector.
“Floreat Forum has welcomed a number of new food outlets this year, which has positioned it as an attractive dining option in what is an already strong demographic catchment,” Mr Cash said.
“With the addition of a new fresh food market, the forum is well positioned to accommodate a strong operator to secure the remaining 120sqm available in the dining precinct.”
Mr Morabito said 2016 had emerged as a strong year for food and beverage retail, with this focus expected to flow through to 2017.
“Food and beverage has been the strongest contender in the retail market this year, accounting for approximately 40% of the 60 plus retail leasing transactions carried out by our team.”
