Wodonga residents can soon enjoy food from popular Albury business Greenstreat without travelling over the border.
Albury born and bred owners and operators – Jackson and Jesse McGrath, Jason Sheather and Ty Seaton – will open their third store next door to Kmart in Mann Central.
Mr Seaton said the business would start with in-store service.
“We are looking to open on Tuesday or Wednesday, and we will start with in-store service and offer pre-orders and delivery in the coming weeks,” he said.
The fast-food eatery sells a range of healthy food options such as salads and burritos and is most famous for its warm taco bowls and blackened chicken bowls.
The original Greenstreat opened in Albury’s City Walk Arcade in 2018 and the owners were looking to replicate its success.
A second outlet opened in Brisbane during October 2020 which is just as profitable.
Mr Seaton said the business strives to change the way people think and choose their food.
“Our aim is to provide as many people as possible with a fast but healthy food option, which means we need to keep opening stores and Wodonga is a great place to start,” he said.
“When Victoria went into lockdown our Wodonga customers were disappointed and delivery drivers were getting stuck at the checkpoints so that was no longer an option.
“Wodonga customers made a lot of noise and made it obvious that we needed to open in Wodonga and so we have listened.”
Mr Seaton said the Wodonga store would have the same menu as the Albury shop and gift cards are available.
“We source our fresh seasonal produce from local producers where possible,” he said.
The Wodonga store will have between 15 and 20 staff working each day and will open Monday to Friday from 11am to 8pm and Saturdays from 11am to 3pm.
