The owners and staff at Two Farm Kids are excited to announce the launch of a new service they will be offering their customers. Starting as early as next week, they will be opening a Smoothie Bar.
Owner Sylvia Ubell said that the idea has been unfolding for a number of years, but really started to take off after her and her daughter attended a National Food Show in Anaheim last year.
“We bought a smoothie blender bike and have been using it at various events and for demonstrations in the store. So we thought it was time to do something a little more. We have all the ingredients right here, everything for special diets such vegan, gluten-free, diabetic, so it just seems like a natural fit,” said Ubell.
Two Farm Kids expanded their floor space and renovated eight years ago, which easily allows for the addition of a Smoothie Bar. The menu will expand over time, however, they do intend to provide hot beverages as well as smoothies, including Fair Trade and Organic teas and coffee. Plus there will be raw food bars and other healthy goodies that will meet the needs of those requiring specialty ingredients for their diets.
“We have the flexibility to add things, depending on what our customers request. We may eventually add a soup bar, muffins, wraps, pizza or other items depending on demand,” said Ubell.
As they will be catering to their regular clientele, as well as to the coffee break and lunch crowd, the store hours will remain the same as they are now and items will be available for takeout only.
“Whenever possible we will use certified organic, natural, locally sourced products. Plus we have all kinds of add-ons in the store. If someone wants a greens powder or fibre added to their smoothie we’ll be able to do that as well. We have lots of different options,” said Ubell.
An important part of planning the launch of the Smoothie Bar was being able to source earth-friendly containers. As such they will be using cornstarch-based, Eco-friendly cups that are biodegradable and compostable with no chemical dyes.
As Two Farm Kids look to celebrate their 30th anniversary this year in August, they are also celebrating the next generation of family getting involved in this local business. While Sylvia and her husband Greg have worked at the business for many years, their daughter Keegan has been helping to run the store now for the past six years.
