Ace’s Nutrition Serves The Community One Healthy Shake At A Time

YORK-A former nurse is now helping others improve their overall health and wellness through better nutrition as owner of Ace’s Nutrition on Victory Boulevard in Yorktown.

Ashley Fetty opened Ace’s Nutrition two years ago after seeking a change from a career in nursing.

“The idea of owning my own business never crossed my mind,” Fetty said. “My father passed away in August of 2018, and I realized life was short and I needed to do what I loved, which is helping others with their health and wellness.”

Ace’s Nutrition, described as a community-based nutrition club that first opened in September 2019, specializes in healthy meal replacement shakes, energizing drinks, and protein iced coffees. There are more than 30 flavors of shakes as well as energizing teas that help counteract the effects of stress, poor eating habits, and certain kinds of acidic foods and beverages.

Wellness coaching is another aspect of the business.

“We also offer free wellness evaluations, and help customers who need help losing weight, building muscle, or just with overall nutrition,” Fetty said.

Fetty’s favorite aspect of the job is helping others achieve their goals.

“I love that I get to make a positive impact in the community,” she said. “Our mission is to provide great nutrition to the 757 area. I love getting to meet new faces, and returning customers coming in daily is my favorite part.”

Like many businesses, Ace’s Nutrition offered curbside pick up and delivery during the early stages of the covid-19 pandemic. Currently, the business offers call ahead orders for breakfast and lunches for other nearby businesses in the area.

Fetty’s future goal is to expand the business and open more locations in the area.

“We want to provide healthy options that are nutritious as well as delicious,” she said.
