Crave Food and Juice Bar is an Emerald business that offers smoothies, juices and coffees alongside healthy breakfast and lunch options.

With a store already established on Hospital Road next to LJ Hooker, the proposed new site would be developed a few doors down at 19 Hospital Rd, the vacant lot next to Mine Warehouse.

Sitting on a 1662 sqm lot, the proposed development would include a full drive through facility with an outside patron rest area and dog watering facilities for customers and their pooches, according to the concept drawings.

The development application also highlights a “visually attractive” building design and seven onsite carparks.

The site is located centrally in Emerald, near one of the town’s shopping centres and close to many food outlets.
