WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Spring Street's newest entrepreneur is new to business ownership but not new to the business of making healthy, refreshing beverages.
 
Logan Lamphere and her mother, Christina, took over Unlimited Nutrition at 31 Spring St. last week, and on Friday, they will hold their grand re-opening of Williamstown's home for "Good Vibes and Great Nutrition."
 
"I work at another nutrition club in New York state near my home," Logan said this week. "Jackie [Therrien] and Kenzie [Huntoon], who were the owners of Unlimited Nutrition, reached out to the owners of that [New York] club and said, 'We can't do this anymore.'
 
"My bosses reached out to me and said, 'We're not sure if you're ever interested in owning a nutrition club, but this is a great opportunity.' "
 
Logan and Christina Lamphere jumped at the chance.
 
"It was kind of laid out for us," Logan said. "It was hard for us to not do it. It was a good opportunity, so we decided to jump in. Getting to do it young works out for me when I'm older."
 
Logan said she was working at the Averill Park, N.Y., club for a little more than a year after coming home from college in Maine.
 
During that time, she had a chance to learn about the teas and shakes that customers want. And she wasted no time revamping the menu at Unlimited Nutrition, which opened just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020.
 
"Some of the teas they had, I still have," Lamphere said. "They're just renamed. I have all their old recipes, so I can make whatever people come in looking for.
 
"I added a lot more shakes, and the menu is a lot bigger than theirs. … I added a peach tree section because our logo is a peach and I wanted to have fun with that. It now has a lot more berry flavors compared to what they had. Flavors I put together like blue raspberry and melon – they didn't have that."
 
Christina Lamphere was a customer at her daughter's old drink spot but did not have the business experience that Logan brings to the operation.
 
For now, Logan Lamphere  said that she will be the sole employee, but she hopes to bring on help as the business develops.
 
To start out, Unlimited Nutrition will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday from 8 to 5, except for the grand opening on Friday, July 1, from 10 to 4.
 
Lamphere said the chance to open her own business was "too good to be true," and she is confident in the customer base that Unlimited Nutrition taps into.
 
"I'm very excited," she said. "I think it's a great spot. I went to elementary school here at Pine Cobble, so I'm very familiar with the area. It's good to be back.
 
"We're going to get, hopefully, a lot of new faces as well as the old regulars. From our social media account, I can see that everyone is super excited to have us back, and I'm excited to meet everyone in person."

Letter: Why I Support Paul Mark

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I've known Paul Mark all his political life, and we couldn't ask for a better person to be our next state senator in Boston. Paul is an experienced and practical progressive who will hit the ground running in the state Senate.

In 2010, Paul was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives to serve the 2nd Berkshire district. And ever since, he has fought for working families, calling for Medicare-for-all, higher-education funding reform, student debt relief, funding for vocational programs, and major transformative solutions to the climate crisis, among other issues.

Yes, Paul knows what it means to work. He came from humble circumstances to earn associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degrees, and finally a law degree. He was able to do it because union benefits made it possible, and he wants others to have the same opportunities. That's why he fights for good-paying jobs in our communities and access to affordable transportation and high-speed broadband internet for all our communities.

Western Mass. needs experienced representation in Boston. I've already mailed my ballot for Paul Mark. I hope you'll soon do the same.

Lee Harrison
Williamstown, Mass.
