Open Daily Starting Feb. 25 in Tampa
Tampa, FL – (Feb. 8, 2017) – The Nutrition Factory specializes in made-from-scratch craveable food, shakes and cold pressed juices crafted for flavor and nutritionally designed to energize your life. Opening Feb. 25 in Tampa, The Nutrition Factory offers a fast and convenient new way to enjoy nutrient-dense and delicious bowls, wraps, cold pressed juices and protein shakes all prepared fresh and assembled to order with only premium ingredients.
All natural paleo, gluten-free, vegan and low carb options are also available.
Located adjacent to the Powerhouse Gym Athletic Club on West Hillsborough Avenue, The Nutrition Factory represents a unique fast casual dining concept. This exciting, new concept was founded in 2014 by Joseph Galloway and Michael Youssef, lifelong best friends who grew up together but took different career paths.
After obtaining his degree, Galloway played in the NFL for 16 years. Youssef went on to obtain his Doctor of Medicine (MD). Nutrition and health played key roles in both careers. As a result, their appreciation and understanding of the importance of nutrition grew over the years. Frustrated by the lack of nutritional quality that was typically offered in a fast casual setting, they set out to create the type of dining destination that they could never seem to find.
“First and foremost we are part of the fitness and wellness community. Our founders combine 16 years of NFL experience and a career in medicine and live fitness and nutrition every day. We are committed to providing our customers with only the best ingredients. These truly craveable combinations not only taste amazing but also make you feel great after working out and energize the rest of your day,” according to a joint statement from the founders.
Youssef played collegiate football at Brown University where he obtained a degree in economics and then went on to obtain his MD. Youssef is now a board-certified radiologist affiliated with Tampa’s St. Joseph’s Hospital. Galloway enjoyed a long and prosperous 16-year NFL career as a wide receiver with the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins before joining ESPN as a college football analyst.
Anthony Santos, general manager of The Nutrition Factory, coordinates all operations including on-site dining, fresh meal preparation and takeout orders available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“My passion has always been in nutrition and fitness and now I get to perfect and grow a concept I truly believe in. Our menu allows customers to customize the fresh, natural ingredients we use to make their ideal bowl, salad, wrap , shake or smoothie.
Our choices are deconstructed so you can construct them in the way that works for you, both in terms of taste and nutrition. Whether that means veggie, gluten-free, paleo, low carb or just a balanced lunch that makes you feel great before going back to work on a Wednesday,” Santos said.
