Z Energy has announced the opening of the first-ever Habitual Fix on the highway at the Bombay stop-over south of Auckland.

Habitual Fix at the Bombay service station is a first for Z and the franchise which was previously only available in urban regions. Travellers will be encouraged to eat healthier on the road instead of stopping for fast food. Z’s GM Retail, Andy Baird said people driving through one of Auckland’s busiest stops deserve a healthy option. “The upwards of 40,000 vehicles driving north and south on this stretch of motorway every day will now have a choice to get fresh, healthy food quickly instead of the traditional fast food highway options on offer nearby,” said Baird.

As service stations have limited fresh food options and excessive sugary snacks, Habitual Fix offers fresh salads, sandwiches and smoothies. “We’ve heard New Zealanders say for a long time they want healthy choices on the go, meanwhile demand for quick options in stopovers like Bombay is unabating. People shouldn’t have to choose between fast and healthy, so we’ve paired up with Habitual Fix to offer a solution in this busy spot.”

Just in time for the holiday season where many will be commuting to Hamilton, Bay of Plenty and the Coromandel, consumers will finally have access to healthier options on the road.
