Tell us about Active Nutrition, and give us a little background on how it got started and why.
Active Nutrition was established in 2000. In April of 2000, we launched a supplement store in the Castro district of San Francisco, California known as ‘Nutri-Sport’. We put in plenty of hard work and innovative thinking, to provide our customers with the best products, service, and prices. To better serve our loyal customers and fans, we made the decision to take a big leap towards full independence and severed our franchise relationship. Severing our franchise ties allowed us to work with multiple vendors, and offer an even wider variety of products which enabled us to pass on an even greater savings to our loyal customers. A few years back, we decided to kick it up a notch and give the store a brand new name, Active Nutrition; we love it and hope you will too!
Where are your current Active Nutrition locations?
Are current locations are San Francisco, Pleasanton, San Jose, and Mountain View.
What makes Active Nutrition not your ‘typical’ nutrition store?
Our Mission is simple, we provide our customers with the best products and services at the guaranteed lowest prices. Another thing that sets us apart is that we do not have a house brand; this means there’s no ‘hard’ sale and our employees don’t work on commission. We feel our 30 day no questions asked return policy also really sets us apart.
How did Active Nutrition become involved with The Protein Cookie Company?
Active Nutrition became involved with The Protein Cookie Company’s Cookies through our sponsored athletes James Hurst and Michelle Mein.
With so many other protein cookies on the market today, why do you feel The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies are a superior choice?
We love the fact The Protein Cookie Companies Protein Cookies have a 1 serving per cookie label; a lot of other protein cookies on the market today have a very appealing nutrient profile, but in reality, the entire cookie is 2 or 3 servings which equals a higher caloric content. And who wants to eat only a half of a cookie? (Laughs)
Tell us about some of the high quality ingredients in The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies.
We really like the fact that The Protein Cookie Company’s Cookies use a very high quality whey protein; this helps maintain a healthy body composition and also can assist in fighting chronic disease. The Protein Cookie Company’s Cookies are sweetened with Stevia which makes them an excellent choice for sufferers of hypertension and obesity. Stevia is also a key ingredient because it contains zero calories, zero carbs and has no impact on the glycemic Index. The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies are diabetic friendly too.
What flavors do you carry in The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies?
We carry The Protein Cookie Company’s entire line of Protein Cookies; Classic Chocolate Chip, Dark Cocoa Chocolate Chip, Classic Peanut Butter Chip, and Oatmeal Raisin.
Which is the most popular selling Protein Cookie? And does the staff at Active Nutrition have a favorite?
The Protein Cookie Company’s most popular Protein Cookie we sell would have to be the Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie. And the staff’s favorite is hands down, the Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie as well! (Laughs)
When working with clients and customers at Active Nutrition, how do you incorporate The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies into their meal plans?
We suggest using The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies as a high protein snack or for a small meal replacement. The Protein Cookie Company’s Protein Cookies are the choice for busy athletes on the go. And when The Protein Company’s Protein Cookie is paired with a cup of coffee, it’s like a little bit of magic; go ahead, dunk that cookie! (Laughs)
