TIFTON — The run of businesses joining the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce continued June 2 with the opening of Victory Nutrition. Owner Charles Hughes cut the ribbon of the shop, which is located at 302 S. Main St.
Melody Cowart, Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce president, welcomed Hughes and Victory Nutrition to the chamber. Before Hughes brandished the scissors, a prayer was said for the business.
“This is a dream come true,” Hughes said. “I feel like it’s a great opportunity to really reach people, to really help people.”
He said traveling in his previous job allowed him to gain insight into opening his shop.
Victory Nutrition makes and sells nutritious shakes, herbal teas and energy drinks. Hughes said his goal is to help Tifton get healthier. Among the shake flavors advertised inside Victory Nutrition are orange pineapple, wedding cake, coconut cream pie and banana pudding.
