Bulldog Nutrition brings something new, delicious, fun and healthy to Chelsea.

“There’s nothing really like this here, so we’re excited to offer the Chelsea community another healthy option,” said Christy Dew, who owns and operates the family business alongside Bob Seefeld.

Located at 1080 S. Main St. in Chelsea, in the Chelsea Shopping Center at the corner of South Main Street and Old U.S. 12, Bulldog Nutrition is a healthy smoothie/shake bar and nutrition club, with no membership fees. It offers overs 90 healthy smoothies and energizing tea combos, and easy-to-go snacks as well.


It’s also an independent Herbalife distributor.

Dew said their drinks can help in a number of ways, from being a healthy, meal replacement to being an after workout up lifter. She said they are there for all people; no matter what nutritional or health path they are on. Getting a great drink and putting together a wellness profile could be part of a visit.

A former social worker, Dew said she and Seefeld, a former truck driver, thought a lot about establishing the business and have put plenty of heart and sweat into making it the best it can be. She said this new venture has one big thing in common with her former profession.

“It’s about helping people,” she said.

Seefeld said they looked at Chelsea as being the perfect place for this business.

“We’re excited and the community has been very welcoming of us,” he said.

Seefeld said they’ve been open for a month and things have been going well. They completely renovated the inside of the location, which used to be a Sprint store. The smoothie bar and nutrition club is highlighted by a 30-foot snack bar with plenty of seating.

In conjunction with the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce, they held a ribbon cutting on Dec. 12.

“This is such a welcome addition to our community,” said Monica Monsma, Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce executive director.

Monsma said Bulldog Nutrition fills a need and is unlike any other business.
