Fresh opened on August 1, and Kelly Gordon, one of the three owners, says they are planning on having a grand opening date very soon. As for now, Gordon says that she and the other two owners, Lindy Buff and Rhonda Giles, are focusing on marketing and growing.

The three owners of Fresh are best friends who live in the area, Gordon says, and Tryon Health and Fitness is owned by Giles’ mother.

Fresh serves juice, bowls, and smoothies. “It’s real food, that’s our big thing,” Gordon says.

Everything at Fresh is made in-house, one-hundred percent fresh. All fruit, she says, goes through the fruit juicer.

The gym used to have a smoothie bar, Power Up Juice Bar, but when the owner retired, the current owners of Fresh decided to work together and start their new business.

“We love it,” Gordon says. “It’s been really nice to work with best friends. Everybody who has come in has loved it. We’re excited to be here and continue to grow with Tryon.”

Fresh will be hiring employees very soon. For more information, contact the owners at freshcleangreenandhealthy@gmail.com
