Nutrition Zone Opens New Stores in North Dakota and Kansas


Mar 11, 2013

Laguna Niguel, CA. (April 30, 2010) /PRNewswire/ Joe Eckstrom, Chairman and CEO of Nutrition Zone Enterprises, Inc. announced the grand opening of 2 new stores in Bismarck, North Dakota and Manhattan, Kansas. The new franchises were awarded to Ryan Burwick, Bismarck, North Dakota and Jason Kapke, Manhattan, Kansas. The Southern California-based franchising company continues its fast-paced expansion with 24 retail stores open in 6 states.

“We were rather unsure as to what to expect upon launching our 2 new stores in Bismarck, North Dakota and Manhattan, Kansas. We had done our homework concerning the market demographics in each city, but still, we held our breath. You can analyze the market and demographics but until you open the doors you just don’t know the competition’s market share and how the people are going to react to your retail concept and brand. We didn’t have to wait long. In a few hours after opening, the customers poured in and were definitely in a buying mood,” said Eckstrom.

Nutrition Zone stores have now posted over 60 consecutive months of same-store sales growth. Continued increases in store sales validate consumer loyalty and resistance to a weak economy.

"Health and nutrition don't seem to go out of style," said Carl Kosnar, Managing Partner of The Kosnar Group, franchise development consultants for NUTRITION ZONE Enterprises, Inc. "During difficult economic times, consumers typically continue to spend some amount of money on those goods and services that make them feel better. So, if food stimulates their comfort, then they continue to eat their favorite foods. For those who turn to exercise and better nutrition to feel better, they seem to spend a portion of their disposable income for gym memberships, athletic equipment purchases, and nutritional supplements,” Kosnar added.
