Business Precinct: Junction Road, Nunawading
Whitehorse News Edition: February
Business Name: HMWRK/Toast 

Tim from HMWRK and Toast shared " Michelle and I were initially attracted to the strip because of its proximity to our son’s primary school, walking tracks and our family home. We opened TOAST Nunawading, two doors up from HMWRK to serve quality coffee and delicious toasted sandwiches to the community and quickly became fond of the wonderful people living and surrounding us. We established HMWRK to be an extension for our community, to collaborate with others in small business and to foster greater connection amongst our 3131 neighbours. Full of passionate traders, the strip also includes a psychologist, hairdresser, cake studio, remedial massage and beauty services. We all support the community and welcome you to visit us."
