Friendly faces are all that you’ll see when you visit the hottest new health club on the southside. In early October, Brett and Melanie Caruso teamed up with Avon residents, Chris and Kristen Wright, to bring The Energy Spot to Greenwood with the hopes of bringing the community together through healthy and nutritious smoothies and meal replacement options.
“We knew the Indianapolis market is where we wanted to be,” Brett says. “There just isn’t anything like this in this market yet, so we wanted to bring this to the Indianapolis area.”
With the help of the Wright’s, who also own several locations of their own, Brett and Melanie were able to sell their home in Mishawaka, find a store location and move into a new home in less than 14 days. The ambitious couple left their fate to video chatting and the expert guidance from realtor, Jodi Milto, who eventually steered them towards a location in Greenwood.
“My wife and I were still back in Mishawaka, so Chris and Kristen drove down to Greenwood with Jodi and video chatted us,” Brett says. “And we thought, ‘Cool! That location looks great. Let’s do that.’ So, we picked our location without even stepping foot in the city yet.”
In just two short months, The Energy Spot has received outstanding online reviews from customers for being a friendly place to get drinks that “taste like dessert in a healthy way.”
“This community is great,” Brett says. “The people are awesome and we’re doing better than any of us could have anticipated starting off.”
With a menu packed full of delicious smoothies, teas and energy bombs, The Energy Spot offers customers more than 75 different protein smoothie flavors. They can also add in their favorite energy boosts and chase it down with a shot of soothing aloe.
“We are very knowledgeable about everything that’s in our products to help out people who are not allowed to have certain things,” Melanie explains.
For people watching their sugar intake, The Energy Spot keeps the sugar content of their smoothies at just nine grams, even in some of their most popular smoothies such as peanut butter cookie dough and carrot cake.
The Carusos and Wrights pride themselves on providing customers with a positive experience and that they leave happy, every time. This is exactly why Melanie encourages everyone to step outside their comfort zone and try something different.
“We just like to have that option that if you don’t like it, or you’re not 100% sure what to get but you want to try it, and you don’t like it, we will throw it away and make you something different,” Melanie says.
As a brand-new business, Brett says he and his wife are hopeful that their name will continue to reach more of the community. By staying engaged, receiving rave customer reviews and providing quality customer service, there’s no doubt that Indianapolis will eventually see more of The Energy Spot.
