A young, health-conscious entrepreneur, Reagan Wright, took a chance on Madison last year, opening up Madison Square Nutrition in the heart of Downtown Madison. To celebrate the shop’s one-year anniversary, Madison Square Nutrition is hosting a small Fall Festival, with live music, prizes, and plenty of sunflowers.
“This Saturday we turn one,” posted Wright on Facebook. “Come celebrate with us from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9 at our Fall Festival styled event.”
Local sunflower grower Vern & Suns will be selling beautiful bouquets. Live music will be performed by guitar-player and singer EllaRyann Cottrell. HoneyTodd Designs will be selling handcrafted jewelry.
Giveaway prizes include gift cards of different amounts to Madison Square Nutrition, a casserole of $40 value, hand-drawn stickers, gift cards to The Fetch House for dog grooming, and Koozies made by Amber Casper.
“We will also have samples out for everyone to try some of our faves while supplies last,” said Wright. “We have enjoyed the past year with y’all so much, come out and celebrate with us!”
Opening in October 2020, Madison Square Nutrition offers healthy but tasty drinks and shakes. Madison Square Nutrition offers a wide variety of “replacement meal shakes that are all low-calorie, low-carb, and low-sugar.” Wright whips up myriad energy teas, beauty drinks and specialty drinks for both adults and kids.
“They are all so delicious you will forget it’s healthy,” said Wright last year.
Wright graduated from the University of Georgia and was set to move to Texas when the coronavirus pandemic hit. So she changed plans and decided to become an entrepreneur by opening her own smoothie shop right in downtown Madison.
“I love the small town feel with all the history,” said Wright. “I could not do this without all the people here who welcomed me and are supporting the business. It’s better than I could have imagined.”
