MINOCQUA - Eating healthy isn't always easy, especially if you're on the go.

But one Minocqua couple wants to show the community you can eat healthy takeout.

The couple opened High Voltage a few years ago.

The healthy food restaurant closed, but Kat Koceja thinks their partnership with Trigs will open a few doors.

They'll be opening up a kiosk with their healthy food the store in Minocqua Monday.

"It's given us an opportunity to reach more people because Trig's is a really popular busy super market," said Koceja.

"Everybody who comes to the produce isle is looking for some healthy things to eat. You might not want to cook that night. You can just pick something up and take it home."

One of the goals for Tony Sanchez is to have the kiosk in all of the Trig stores.

He wants to focus on his customers and their health.

"Help the people and support the people who really want to feel better, look better and eat healthy food," Sanchez said.

"Our goal is try to improve a better tasting product in the area."

High Voltage's healthy food will be ready for you to take home starting at 10 a.m. Monday.
