The Archer City square saw a new business pop up in the old Iron Trail building. Wildcat Trail Nutrition offers a wide selection of nutritional shakes and teas for those looking for a healthy alternative.
Owner Madison Johnson recently opened the business, jumping at an opportunity to fulfill a dream.
“I’ve always wanted to do an Herbalife club, but there are so many in Wichita” Johnson said. “I’ve always heard Archer is very good about supporting small businesses. When I found this building, I thought I just had to take the opportunity and do it. You can’t imagine the outpouring of support I’ve received. The people here are awesome.”
A full-time third and fourth grade special education teacher at City View ISD, Johnson foresees a busy schedule in the fall. Currently the smoothie and juice bar is open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., but once school starts, Johnson plans on hiring a new staff member to cover the morning shift. She expects to man the store from 4 to 7 p.m. in the evening.
Johnson’s menu offers a wide selection of items, including over 50 shakes and teas.
“The shakes we have are for protein and meal replacements, to keep you full so you aren’t snacking throughout the day,” Johnson said. “Our teas have this stuff called Liftoff that boosts your energy throughout the day better than a coke or an energy drink. They also boost your metabolism to keep you full longer. Usually people will drink their tea and then have their shake so they’re pretty good for a few hours.”
The biggest thing to surprise Johnson thus far: the outpouring of support from the community.
“I want to say thank you to everyone that has supported me so far,” Johnson said. “I hope that it continues. The support has blown me away so thank you to everybody.”
Take a moment to stop by and welcome Johnson to the Archer City community.
