4th Street Nutrition in downtown Davenport holds grand opening
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - People from all over the Quad Cities came together to celebrate 4th Street Nutrition during its grand opening and ribbon cutting Wednesday on the first day of Black History Month.
“A lot of college students, a lot of activity down here,” Zachary Smith, co-owner said. “So, I feel like, you know, me working downtown, I see a lot of people walking around. So, I think it’d be a good, you know, exercise, springs coming up, it’d be a good opportunity for people to come around, walk around and get their tea’s, get their protein drinks in them.”
Owners of the new Davenport business, Dionte and Craig McMath, and Zachary Smith, hope to bring an impact and set an example to the community.
“I’d say starting, starting this month is huge. Just, just being a black-owned business and, you know, just striving and, and giving back to the community and just, just growing,” Smith said.
February is Black History month and the Quad Cities community packed the store in support of this new black-owned business.
“It means a lot for our children; we both have boys and girls. We want them to look at us and know that they can do it and like I just said why not us? So, it means a lot to us and on this particular month, it means even more,” Dionte McMath said.
The shop offered samples and a special giveaway during the grand opening.
“We’re just excited to be a part of it now, you know, and to bring the knowledge of nutrition and health to the community,” Craig McMath said.
Menu items include shakes, teas and energy drinks. Products are made with natural ingredients and no added sugars.
They are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
