NUTRISHOP® on Hilton Head Island Opens for Business

New franchise owner aims to help her community live their best, healthy lives

Hilton Head Island, SC, Jan.9, 2023 – NUTRISHOP®, a national nutrition, wellness and supplement retail franchise founded in 2003, continues to expand across the United States with a new franchised location opening on Hilton Head Island, SC. Owner/Franchisee Dana Bonales, who has earned certifications in nutrition and personal training through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, said she wanted to become a Nutrishop franchisee because she is passionate about helping people live their best, healthy lives.

“When I came to South Carolina [in May 2022], I quickly realized there was a need for quality nutritional products and somewhere to have overall daily support,” said the former Orange County, California resident. “The community here is very active, so health and wellness are important to them. I want to help these people reach their full potential and have a good quality of life.”

Bonales, 37, first discovered Nutrishop as a customer in 2004. She was active in sports growing up and even swam in college for Orange Coast College. When she packed on 80 pounds later in life due to some health issues, she turned to her local Nutrishop for help. Through proper nutrition and exercise, she lost the weight. She said having her own transformation experience has helped her relate to people from all levels of fitness and health.

“I have been all over the place in my life with my journey,” Bonales said. “I am not afraid to be vulnerable and share my story because it builds trust with my customers and they are able to see I genuinely care and I know what it takes to change.”

Since its inception, Nutrishop has become a trusted source for wellness, weight loss, nutrition, sports performance and more. In addition to offering guaranteed low prices on top-industry brands along with a vast array of first-rate exclusive products – from protein powders, thermogenics, vitamins and nootropics, to immune-support products, pre-workouts, vegan formulas, and more – Nutrishop provides unparalleled customer-centric services. These include free custom meal plans, free body composition analysis scans, transformation challenges, nutritional guidance, coaching, and more.

“The best thing about Nutrishop is the quality of supplements and support that it provides, not only for me as the owner but for my customers,” Bonales said. “Nutrishop has absolutely set me up for success and made sure I was able to hit the ground running with confidence. Nutrishop is a family and a company I am proud to represent.”

Even before Nutrishop Lowcountry officially opened in November, Bonales was sponsoring events and sampling products. She is big on getting involved in her community. Most recently, she helped sponsor the Polar Bear Plunge that raises money for Charli’s Critters. The Chamber of Commerce, of which she is now a member, held a ribbon-cutting event for her store on Friday, Jan. 6th. And, Bonales hosted a very special grand opening event featuring bodybuilder legend Shawn Ray the following day.

“My hope for my Hilton Head Island community is that they all get the support they need for their active lives,” she said. “I hope that I am able to impact the local community and let them see that there is a way to reach their greatest health so they can enjoy their lives to the fullest.”
