Complete Nutrition was founded in 2004 by Cory Wiedel and Ryan Zink. With the goal of outthinking, outselling, and out marketing the national competition, they created Complete Nutrition to feature exclusive products that couldn’t be purchased elsewhere. The leadership team continues to innovate the system with services that benefit both customers and Franchise Owners—most recently, an eCommerce platform that boosts store sales and retains customers. The business also provides world-class support to its Franchise Owners through its turnkey marketing materials. Over the years, Complete Nutrition has become more than a supplement store, but rather a lifestyle brand that helps customers achieve their goals.
