Blog: Things are Shakin’ in Germantown

Two former nurses turned small business owners are now whipping up gourmet protein shakes and energy teas in Germantown.

The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and joined MoCo Nutrition LLC to celebrate their grand opening on July 9, 2021. They are located at 19857 Century Boulevard, Unit B in Germantown.

We are so happy to have MoCo Nutrition in Germantown,” said Marilyn Balcombe, GGCC president. “It’s a great store and the shakes are delicious!”

They are a nutrition club open to all and provide protein shakes loaded with plant-based protein, vitamins, and minerals. You can pair them with one of their many tea choices -or get a tea separate – since their tea blends deliver energy, antioxidants, and burn calories. They also have aloe which is great for digestion and immune health.
