When father-and-son team Sam and Chris took over the 30-year-old Crispy Carrot store in Mt Gravatt three years ago, it would have been understandable for some customers to worry about the newcomers' experience compared to the previous owners. However, it quickly became evident they had nothing to worry about.

Sam first entered the fruit and vegetable business in 1999, purchasing his first store in Toowong to supply better produce to the local community. Chris joined the family business five years ago, seizing the opportunity to work in a healthy environment that matched his passion for people. Taking over the Crispy Carrot was a natural next step for this dynamic family duo.

Both Sam and Chris love sharing their extensive knowledge with customers, offering advice on the best buys available in the store, and always going the extra mile to make sure customers leave the Crispy Carrot happy. This includes cutting watermelon and pineapple on-demand, so customers don’t have to test their knife skills at home!

The passion extends beyond just people – it’s great produce too. The store now specialises in premium quality fruits and vegetables sourced daily from the Brisbane Produce Markets.

Sam and Chris understand that their dedication to providing the best in seasonal, locally-grown produce has broader benefits for the community, supporting local family businesses and, in turn, Australian farmers.

It turns out you can have a passion for top-quality fruits and vegetables, a healthy lifestyle, and supporting the local community and Australia’s farmers at the same time. This is especially true when you’re a family business with a wealth of experience to offer your customers.
