Snack Attack Shack a throwback to simpler times

Family recipes, homemade meals and community feel keep customers coming back

Sisters Julia Huczel and Laurie Robertson opened the Snack Attack Shack seven years ago, located smack-dab in the middle of the Town Centre mall. Since then, they have transformed the open-concept eating space into more than a place to grab a snack or coffee, but a community hub that offers home-cooked, fresh affordable meals all day. Robertson, who is a certified chef, said that the menu is, "going back to basics."

"We make home-cooked food using family recipes," said Robertson. "We have good fish-and-chips that's not deep fried but air fried and we roast our chicken and beef for our sandwiches."

The Snack Attack Shack's menu is extensive and has something for everyone including made from scratch soups, chili, lasagna, salads made-to-order and pizza made with naan bread. 

"The customers we have are amazing, we know everyone by name; people can sit, relax and have breakfast," said Huczel.

"We also have 28 flavours of ice cream, sugar-cane drinks, sodas and coffee."

Born and raised in the qathet region, both Huczel and Robertson are dedicated to their customers, but they are also always looking for ways to improve their business.

"We cooked seven turkeys for a 90-person [Christmas]  dinner that took place here,"said Robertson. "We did the same for Thanksgiving and Easter."

The sisters and business owners are excited about what is on the horizon for the Snack Attack Shack. 

"We are creating a new food line but are keeping it hush-hush for now," said Huczel. "In the next couple months we will be moving into a new location in the mall."

That new space is not far from where they are now, but will have a more cozy, brick and mortar, restaurant feel to it. 

"We are still enjoying what we do and our customers are a big part of that," said both Robertson and Huczel.
