Bustillos, 27, plans to open Get Fit Kitchen next month in the
Greeley Mall. It’s a meal prepping business specializing in Hispanic foods.
It sells meal prep bowls, while also offering meal plans for
customers looking to eat healthy. The menu consists of pinto and black beans,
Spanish rice, chicken and steak fajitas and more.
Up to this point, Bustillos has run Get Fit Kitchen out of her
In addition to having a physical storefront, moving into the mall
will allow new services like online ordering and delivery.
“It’s kind of grown into something bigger than I ever thought it
would,” said Bustillos, who is also a business management student at Colorado
State University in Fort Collins. “Owning my business was great when it was
just out of my house. But, now it’s a full establishment. … I just give credit
to God for helping me with this idea.”
Get Fit Kitchen will be right next to Team Tom Gym in a space
formerly occupied by Time for Crepes.
The business will have a couple areas for people to sit down and
eat. But, it will largely accommodate customers looking to grab and go. Get Fit
Kitchen will offer a fitness application for people to follow exercise routines
via their smartphones.
business will also allow its customers to do weekly weigh-ins to assure they
are staying on track with their fitness goals.
Before undertaking this venture, Bustillos worked as a nutrition
coach for Max Muscle Nutrition, which is now called Atlas Nutrition. She is
also a certified personal trainer.
On top of having the chance to run her own business, Bustillos’ inspiration for opening Get Fit Kitchen is also part civic duty.
In a city with a diverse, rapidly growing population — and a
growing number of fast-food joints — Bustillos is eager to bring healthier
eating options in the form of tasty Hispanic dishes.
“I’ve lived in Greeley my whole life, and I’ve never seen
anything like it,” said Bustillos, who is also a fluent Spanish speaker. “There
is a demand for this, for sure. It’s just something so different.”
