It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you that we have decided to close The Naked Sprout.
As some of you may know we had been wanting to take over the Snap Fitness space next door to us as we needed a third yoga room for our yoga studio and more storage space. We were in the final negotiations with the previous landlord to take over the space. We were then suddenly told that the building had been sold. The new landlords decided not to honour the previous agreement and so we had to renegotiate. These negotiations fell apart last week and we will not be taking over that space. We need to add a third yoga room and more storage and it doesn’t make sense to divide the yoga studio by taking on space somewhere else so we need to expand the studio into the space where TNS is currently.
When looking at both our businesses, we felt that the current model of the vegan restaurant had structural issues such as layout, size (we had a small kitchen trying to prep for a 40-50 seater restaurant), and the cost of food and staff involved in making the food (we have never wanted to just buy pre-made meals).
We have decided to step back and figure out a better way to achieve our vision and mission of sharing our love of vegan/plant-based food with as many people as possible.
Obviously, this was a very difficult decision as we have tried to nurture our baby through its formative years with tons of passion, energy, money and time and we are sick to our stomachs to see it close. We will miss our people the most – all of OUR STAFF (FAMILY), our suppliers and YOU - our community of customers. We are grateful for the lessons that life has taught us in opening a restaurant and for having had the opportunity to get to know all of you. We appreciate your support and patronage and friendship over the past few years.
If anyone out there is passionate about The Naked Sprout as we are (as we know many of you loved the place) and would be interested in discussing a new TNS offering in another location please email us at email@example.com
With all our love and our wish for health and happiness in this world.
Clayton, Shanine and Pete.

The Naked Sprout started as an idea for people to gather after a yoga class. Our love and passion for healthy, vegan meals turned into a full service vegan and gluten-free restaurant. Our vision is that anyone and everyone can enjoy vegan, plant based meals.
