Single Store Franchisee
Hillsboro, OR

“I decided to run with a Nutrishop franchise after doing a ton of research on other companies. I almost purchased a boutique gym franchise last year, but the terms were unrealistic to me as a business owner.

I’ve worked in the financial industry for 14 years, and while that’s still great, I wanted to pursue a career that provided myself and others more value. It was time for a change. I discovered that if I wasn’t being challenged or passionate about what I was doing, what was my purpose?

When I heard that the Nutrishop location near me was possibly for sale, I set out to schedule a meeting with the owner to express my interest in acquiring the business. His schedule was packed, so connecting with him was difficult. I was on a mission, and rather than wait around, I filled out a Nutrishop application online to inquire about opening a new franchise location in a different territory.

Bryon McLendon called me once he received my application and we had a great conversation. That single call changed my mind and shortly after, I decided to pursue my initial plan and finally met with the existing store owner. We agreed on the buyout terms and discussed his exit strategy.

During the next couple of months and many calls with Bryon, I thought, “This guy really gives a sh*t about me and this business.” His beliefs encompass the reasons why I wanted to open a Nutrishop and do something on my own.

The new store training I did in Southern California was an incredible, eye-opening experience. I felt so much love from the Nutrishop corporate team that I was confident this was my place. Things happen for a reason, not by luck. They happen with hard work and persistence, and with that, you won’t fail. Nutrishop, we’re family now!”
