Susan Klein had a life-changing year in 2009. She was managing a local Italian restaurant for almost10 years and had gradually gained weight. She decided to join a local gym, started to work out with a trainer, and began to make wise choices when eating. Positive results prompted Susan to enter a fitness challenge, ultimately losing 50 pounds and winning the entire challenge.
Realizing that Susan had a talent for the restaurant business, the owner of the gym where she had been training approached her about making healthy and tasty food for his clients to purchase before or after their workouts. Susan, being very interested in this new venture, bought and moved an industrial refrigerator to the gym, calling her new business “Fit Foodz Cafe”. She consulted with a nutritionist and quickly rented a restaurant kitchen where she began creating and cooking meals in the late evening hours, following her typical 12 hour shift at the Italian restaurant.
The new business was astounding. Clients were soon asking for her to create a complete menu and non-members of the gym were soon stopping by, not for a membership, but to see what Fit Foodz had stocked in the fridge. Susan decided to move forward by creating social media pages to connect with the community, which then drove the creation of her current website. Susan realized that her next step was to open an actual venue where she could fulfill her lifelong dream of owning a restaurant.
Fit Foodz Café opened their doors in September 2011 and has not looked back. Susan’s meticulous attention to detail and committed work ethic has proven to be the backbone of her business. Fit Foodz Café has become a staple in the lives of many in the South Florida region.
