Healthy Fast Food Hits Burnaby

New HealthFare eatery is a fresh to go and health to stay restaurant franchise.

The first HeathFare Restaurant in BC is opened its doors on Marine Drive @ Marine Way Market Crossing in Burnaby on February 28th 2013.

HealthFare is 100% guilt free eating.  All you need to do is show up and eat as there are no ‘bad’ choices on the menu.  This eat-in or take-out restaurant’s menu features calorie marked items in addition to gluten free options that have been designed in a collaboration between chefs and dieticians.  You get delicious food, prepared in only minutes at an affordable price.

“We’ve taken the convenience of fast food and built it into a healthy and eco-friendly experience,” says HealthFare owner Mark Bakker.  “HealthFare is about helping you live a healthy lifestyle in the easiest, quickest and tastiest way,” continues Bakker. “We’re not about diets or trends.  We are about creating a healthy, tasty, guilt-free food culture that is a part of the lifestyle you want to have.”

This exciting eco-friendly fast casual restaurant franchise is an education in the healthy concept franchise operation.  HealthFare offers – all natural smoothies fresh rice bowls, non-processed meat sandwiches, salads and wraps and many vegan and vegetarian offerings.  Customers will also find Vega health nutritional supplements and specialty bottled beverages such as all natural coconut water and fruit infused waters at their local HealthFare.

But the goodness doesn’t end there: every HealthFare restaurant is designed with sustainability in mind.  The restaurant is complete with BMW-designed all-recycled material chairs, décor pieces made from reclaimed wood, Japanese kirei board 100% recycled wood ceilings and marmoleum flooring made with natural and renewable ingredients.  HealthFare’s green and eco-chic store design complements its healthy menu.

The first B.C. HealthFare opens this week at 7366 Market Crossing in Burnaby, B.C.  With two stores already thriving in Calgary, Alberta, Mark Bakker has taken the next step by partnering with new franchise owner Jenny Saini to bring HealthFare to the West Coast. “I’m looking forward to spreading the HealthFare culture into B.C. – it’s an exciting addition to healthy eating in Greater Vancouver.”

HealthFare Marine Drive is open open 7am-9pm Monday to Friday and 8am-8pm Saturdays and Sundays 9am to 8pm. To find out more aboutHealthFare and to have a look at their menu, check out their website: and follow them on twitter @HealthFareMrn.
