Turn your passion for fitness and nutrition into your own business!

The ups and downs of today’s economic business climate is not news to anyone. What is news is that in 2010, NUTRISHOP™ celebrated a record-breaking year. “In fact, it was our best year in history!,” said the company that has created a booming market in their Sports Nutrition and Weight Loss Superstores. They report that their projections for 2011 are even better. With the population becoming more attentive to their health and well-being through proper nutrition and supplementation, the interest in fitness and nutrition is soaring and NUTRISHOP wants you to be a part of it.

Founded in 2003, the officers of the NUTRISHOP Corporation brought a combined 30 years of experience and success to the Sports Nutrition, Vitamin and Weight Loss retail industry when they formed the company. The vision behind NUTRISHOP™ was to fill a void in the retail nutrition market and provide consumers with superior products and service combined with guaranteed lowest prices.

To assist in accomplishing this goal, NUTRISHOP™ has developed an extensive network with the leading supplement distributors giving them national buying power in order to secure the lowest pricing available, both wholesale and retail. This ensures the customer the guaranteed lowest prices on all the top brands industry wide.

NUTRISHOP™ is a License opportunity that is very different from a typical franchise. A franchise model can charge up to 10% royalties per month based on gross sales and this can drastically increase overhead expenses.

As a Licensing opportunity, NUTRISHOP™ offers fitness-minded entrepreneurs the opportunity to combine their dream of owning a lucrative sports nutrition, weight loss and vitamin retail business, within a proven business model, that is supported by an experienced corporate team with a track record of success.

NUTRISHOP™ is capitalizing on the current explosion of the nutritional supplement industry through the expansion of multiple retail outlets across the nation. NBJ, the leading market authority on dietary supplements and other natural products, estimates that U.S. consumer sales of supplements in all sales channels grew nearly 7 percent to $28.7 billion in 2010 and
is poised to grow at a rate of $1.3 to $1.9 billion per year, for the next five years.

According to the company, “By continuing to put our store owners and their customers first and based on our projections, we are anticipating that 2011 will finish as our strongest year to date for growth.”  NUTRISHOP™ is projecting to exceed the goal of 500 locations nationwide within the next 5 years. Opportunities are available in all 50 states and in Canada.

Q. Why choose NUTRISHOP™ over any other retail nutrition company opportunity?

A. NUTRISHOP™ is one of the fastest growing sports nutrition, weight loss and vitamin retail chains today. Over the past 15 years, the officers of NUTRISHOP™ have studied the trends and competition variables of the retail nutrition industry. We are confident that NUTRISHOP™ maintains an edge over the competition. Offering all top industry brands, guaranteed low prices, over 100 exclusive sports nutrition, weight loss, vitamin and general health products coupled with unparalleled customer service is the mainstay for our continued success. Being a License program and NOT a franchise positions NUTRISHOP™ as one of the most cost effective and lucrative nutrition based retail chains to open.

Q. Why open a NUTRISHOP™ vs. opening a store on my own?

A. In addition to our extensive in-store training program from staff members who have specialized and succeeded in this industry for more than 15 years as well as ongoing retail and marketing support from our industry seasoned professionals, NUTRISHOP™ provides you with national buying power on all of the top industry brands that enables you to compete with any retail nutrition outlet.

Here are just two testimonials from NUTRISHOP™ store owners:

“Following the research and comparing several retail nutrition chains out there today, it was a no-brainer to go with Nutrishop as my choice to open the first store.  The business structure and growth of Nutrishop is superior to the others as well as the Nutrishop corporate team having the experience, knowledge and track record of success that I was looking for.

As of this writing, I’ve been open for business only a month, but it could not have gone smoother and I am off to a great start!  The corporate team at Nutrishop really cares!  From the site location process and lease negotiation assistance from Nutrishop’s broker, the initial store owner’s training program, store environment, design and build-out tips, overall retail sales assistance, marketing ideas, product selection and information, merchandising… Nutrishop corporate “crosses every T” and “dots every i”!  All the way down the line, Nutrishop has become my “Phone a Friend” lifeline, only I’m not limited to one call, they are always there for me when I need them to give support and lend a hand.  Thanks, Nutrishop!”

Eric Attoian; Single Unit Owner, CA

“ I was employed at UPS for 16 years and decided that I needed a change. I always had a passion for the dietary supplement industry and knew that one day I wanted to own my own retail nutrition business. After researching the industry in general with respect to future growth and projections, I decided to look into several retail nutrition companies and do some comparisons. Nutrishop was the clear and obvious choice for me for more than one reason.

From day one they literally held my hand through the entire process. As I reflect on my decision to become my own boss and enjoy my success and rewards, my only regret is that I didn’t make this career change sooner! I am glad I made the switch and a change of careers has been a blessing.  I now come to work and actually enjoy what I do for a living. I am currently in the process of opening my second location in Florida and have no plans of slowing down. I understand how tough the decision can be to leave a stable career to chase your dream of owning your own business, but I can say with confidence that the Nutrishop team is there every step of the way to help turn your dream into a reality!”

Vince Marinaccio; Multiple Store Owner, FL


A team of health and fitness enthusiasts decided to leave the health club industry in 1998 and enter the booming retail nutrition industry.  Their goal was to give the consumer great customer service, the latest in cutting edge nutritional supplements and the most competitive industry pricing available led them to quickly expand to 5 locations in Southern California within their first 18 months.

For the next 4 years, they studied the trends of the industry, fine tuned their business model and continued down the path of success.  Recognizing a void existed in the industry to offer consumers all the top brands, the latest cutting edge nutritional supplements, guaranteed lowest prices and unparalleled customer service from a knowledgeable, friendly staff member, led them to launch what is now one of the fastest growing retail nutrition chains today, NUTRISHOP™ – Sports Nutrition & Weight Loss Superstores.

NUTRISHOP™ specializes in nutritional supplements designed for weight loss, strength and muscle gain, body toning as well as general health.  The trained staff and Certified Sports Nutritionists at each location spend quality time with each customer to ensure optimal results.  The company mission is to assist and motivate each and every customer so they are able to meet and many times exceed their fitness goals.

    I am a sophomore in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. I am studying marketing and finance. I have heard much about NutriShop and have read through everything on theis site about it. I am extremely interested in learning more and possibly talking to a representative from the company for a project I am doing for class. I was also wondering if NutriShop offers and internships.
    Thank you so much, Jason Thompson
