HOT: Gurgle Creative Juices – Shop 2, 388 Logan Rd, Stones Corner.

In an effort to contribute to the revival of our much loved neighbourhood of Stones Corner, check MM and I made a bold and exciting investment recently.  We purchased a café business and took over its leased premises in Logan Rd.  We shut the doors for a couple of months, sale taped up the windows with butcher’s paper and left the Stones Corner community guessing! What evolved was a fresh, bright, sparkling shop front – a reflection of our desire to give this little piece of Stones Corner a face lift and inject some energy and life into the whole community. 

This little side project of ours is known as Gurgle Creative Juices and we think it’s hot.  First things first – there’s no coffee here!  Stones Corner boasts many great cafes and coffee spots like Lady Marmalade, Grindhouse Specialty Coffee and Green Door Café; the last thing on our mind was getting in the way of these guys.    Fresh fruit juices and smoothies is what Gurgle is all about.

It’s all pretty simple.  We get fresh fruit and veg delivered daily from local suppliers, throw it through our super-duper juicer, or into a blender and what comes out is delicious, healthy alternatives for busy, active people!  Every drink on the menu is made fresh – there’s nothing pre-made or preserved, all drinks are made right in front of the customer’s eyes.

Gurgle boasts clean white surfaces with smatterings of our trademark yellow lemon.  There are piles of fruit everywhere and you can smell the citrusy aroma halfway down the street!  The tunes are cranked (ABC radio counts as tunes right?!) and whilst there’s no room to swing a cat inside, you can pull up a yellow crate, sip your smoothie and watch the colourful characters pass by from the dedicated slurping area.

The juices and smoothies on the Gurgle menu have been designed with inspiration in mind.  Fruit and veg are packed full of vitamins and minerals that can enhance your mood, mental alertness, creativity and well-being.  Our drinks are each tailored to target certain well-being areas, such as fighting colds, strengthening bones, getting happy and detoxing.  We even have additives like muesli, energizing Acai berry and calming green tea powders, plus detoxi trim and hydroxy lean powders (for the weight conscious) and lean whey protein powder, glutamine, creatine and branch chain amino acids (for the gym junkies of course!)

It’s hard to pick a favourite (after all, we’re rather attached to our very own creations!) but the Banana Belly smoothie is a must have – with low fat ice cream and milk, honey, bananas and cinnamon, sustained energy, alertness and satiety is what you’ll get. 

Our Ginger Ninja juice is a hot favourite with customers; packed with apple, orange, carrot, pineapple, lemon and ginger, it packs a great punch, is energizing and revitalizing.  Most of all, it’s thirst quenching!

Gurgle drinks come in 2 sizes – small ($4.50) and large ($6.50).  Our “On the Juice” range (tailored for the sporty types) comes in large only, for $7.  All additives are $1 extra each.  We make fresh wraps daily with a range of meat and salad options ($5).  There are also a range of high-protein, low-carb bars available for a healthy, chewy accompaniment to a drink. 

Throwing fruit into a juicer or blender isn’t rocket surgery, but we reckon there’s a bit of an art to it.  Our recipes are measured and balanced to make sure our customers get consistency, flavour and value for money.  We’re all about the fruity goodness and making sure there’s as much packed in as possible.

MM’s a bit of a tech-head, so to appeal to the Gurgle geeks out there he’s designed this funky new point of sale system (after our cash register failed on day 2!).  It boasts an ipad networked to an electronic cash drawer and receipt printer.  Don’t like paper receipts?  That’s fine, we can email it to you! 

 

The geek-out continues on the social media pages of twitter (@gurglejuice) and facebook (http://www.facebook.com/gurglejuice), so hit us up if you want to be part of the inner Gurgle for specials, promotions and other exciting news.
