Single Store Franchisee
Houston, TX

“In high school, I started working at a local supplement store. It took almost no time at all to realize I’d found something I was deeply passionate about. As my knowledge of health and proper supplementation grew, I became the go-to person all my friends and family went to whenever they needed guidance. Although I loved working at various supplement stores throughout high school and college, I never saw it as anything more than just a fun, part-time job I did to help put myself through school.

When I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in economics, I pursued a 9-5 life in the corporate world. Just as it took no time to figure out I had a passion and wellness, it took no time at all to figure out the corporate world was not for me. Thanks to the unbelievable love and support my family gave – and gives – to me, I decided I wanted to take the leap and open a supplement store of my own.

Around the same time, I was invited to partner with someone I had previously worked for to open another supplement store with him. It was an attractive offer, and it seemed to be the right choice, but I had to do my due diligence and see what other franchising opportunities were out there. As I researched, I realized all these stores seemed the same, just “OK,” nothing special. That is until I found Nutrishop. I literally spent maybe 5 minutes looking over the Nutrishop website and speaking with Bryon McLendon (founder and CEO) before deciding beyond a shadow of a doubt this was the route I wanted to take.

The Nutrishop “team” almost instantaneously became my Nutrishop “family,” and I couldn’t be more thankful for everything they have done and continue to do to make my business wildly successful. Choosing to open a Nutrishop store has undoubtedly been the single most significant decision I’ve ever made, and it has given me the exact life I have always dreamed of having.”

Update: July 2021

“Being the only store in the Houston area as well as being a super young franchisee who has always hated asking for help, it’s easy to feel like I’m on an island. Opening during the pandemic and the inability to travel on top of all that really began to extenuate the feeling of isolation. Nutrishop corporate sent out my dear friend and store liaison, Madison, to give a fresh perspective. With the support given by Nutrishop corporate, I’m happy to report that the growth we’ve seen has been exponential and has far surpassed any of our expectations.

Being able to confidently know and remind myself that I’m not in this alone is something I’m endlessly thankful for. It may sound cliche, but I’ve never been a part of, nor witnessed, a company that treats every individual store owner as if they are family. I’m eternally thankful and beyond excited for the future of my store.”
