When Mel and Vanessa saw the opportunity for a food café business within the Raymond Laurie Sport Centre at Yamba they didn’t hesitate and “Kai Reka” was born…Kai Reka meaning “Food Yummy”.
“We are just two mums that are passionate about healthy nutritious food and wanted to be able to provide a ‘one stop healthy food shop’ not just for patrons of the Centre but for the community in general”, said Mel.
Vanessa agrees, adding that the Raymond Laurie Sport Centre is getting busier and busier, and there are not too many options in the vicinity if you wanted to grab something to eat and drink. “And given the Centre is the place to go to get fit and healthy, healthy food options really are a no brainer.”
