A Palmerston North reality TV star has sold the family salad bar to a long-time customer.

Emily Blanchett, half of The Block duo Chlo and Em, started The Green House with her mum, Gill Yorke, five years ago.

They had hoped to sell the business to someone who loved it as much as they did.

Graphic designer and businesswoman Trish Quinn has put up hand. She has been a regular customer since the healthy takeaway bar opened on The Square and felt buying it was a no-brainer for her next challenge.
