Infit Nutrition, Glendale’s newest health-conscious cafe, just celebrated its grand opening.
The internet cafe located at 69-44 Cooper Ave., which offers a variety of smoothies, teas, bowls, energy drinks and snacks, had their soft opening earlier in January, but officially welcomed the community to their business with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 22.
“It means the world to me to be able to open our doors to the public and to let the community know that we aren’t going anywhere without a fight,” owner Jonathán Acosta said.
Assemblyman Mike Miller and Daniel Kurzyna, a rep from Councilman Robert Holden’s office, attended the grand opening to help Acosta and his team cut their blue ribbon.
“Infit Nutrition is a great business at a great location,” Assemblyman Miller said. “I am always happy to support local small businesses, especially in my district. Infit Nutrition is a nice fit for the Glendale community.”
The cafe welcomed about 35 guests during the ceremony. Infit Nutrition is committed to giving the Glendale community a personal and healthy experience. The word “Infit” stands for “insane fitness,” which is what Acosta said people would call his new lifestyle when he started taking care of himself.
“The majority of us are here trying to make healthier decisions to become better, fitter, faster and stronger without having ourselves deprived from what we love on a day-to-day basis,” Acosta said. “We want to make a statement that being on a fitness journey doesn’t necessarily mean we have to follow strict meal plans or kill ourselves in the gym but simply make better decisions on a daily basis.”
Their menu is full of specials as well as a table of contents that details the amount of calories, protein, carbs and sugar for each option. They’re also constantly creating new smoothie flavors and snacks.
“My business partners and I have a goal, a ‘One Team, One Dream’ mentality generated to bring love and acceptance to anyone and everyone who walks into these doors. We thank everyone for welcoming us into their home town and into their community, because ‘Without U’ we have no community,” Acosta said. “These are Glendale’s doors, this is Glendale’s space to become comfortable with who they are as individuals and as a community and we are proud to say that Infit Nutrition can be used as a vehicle to guide them there.”
Infit Nutrition is open on Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit www.infitnutri.org.
