Monroe welcomed yet another food option this past weekend, giving Uptown Nutrition a warm welcome. The health, smoothie and energy drink “Fast food for healthy people” store opened at 1121 W. Spring Street Saturday to a brisk trade for its opening day.
“We would like to thank the Monroe community and everyone who came out to support us today! We are beyond grateful and blessed for each and every one of you,” Uptown Nutrition wrote on its Facebook page.
Owners Jamie Mosley and her fiancé, Chris Williams, said they had looked around and didn’t see anything similar in Monroe and thought it would be a good location. There are other Uptown Nutrition locations around but it is not a franchise.
“We do share recipes but we are all independently owned,” Mosley said. Those recipes include healthy meal replacement shakes, loaded teas for energy, specialty and beauty drinks and kids drinks, all with creative names such as Casanova, Pretty in Pink, Jimmy Buffet, Snake bite and Gummi Bear, Unicorn and Little Mermaid for the kids.
Uptown Nutrition is open Monday-Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is closed on Sundays.
The store is located in the Shops at Breedlove center. You can follow Uptown Nutrition on its Facebook page at this link.
