Pawtucket Welcomes Newest Business with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Pawtucket Mayor Donald R. Grebien, City Councilor Sandra Cano, City Councilor Mark Wildenhain, and City Councilor Al Vitali celebrated the opening of Pawtucket’s newest business, Central Nutrition, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 726 Central Avenue. The event is part of Women’s History Month in Pawtucket, a series of events highlighting the achievements and contributions of women throughout the city, as well as women owned businesses.

Stacey Gorbachev, owner and Pawtucket resident, health journey began right after she had a baby. She joined a weight loss challenge, shed 30 pounds and kept going. After losing a total of 60 pounds, everyone around her wanted to know her secret. That inspired her to become a health coach over six years ago. Central Nutrition offers shakes and weight-loss/energizing teas, health coaching, weight loss challenges with nutritional classes and wellness evaluations.

“I want to thank Stacey for opening her doors to us, as well as Sandra Cano and the Women’s History Month Committee for organizing this event,” said Mayor Grebien. “Stacey has put her heart and soul not only into her businesses but into her city. We are extremely proud of her for turning her healthy journey into a career, and grateful that she chose Pawtucket to start her own business.”

“It is so important to support our local businesses,” said Councilor Cano. “What better way to also support a women owned business than during Women’s History Month. It is important as a community to come together to support each other and contribute to their success.”

“After reaching my own personal health goals and feeling great, I knew I wanted to help others feel the same way,” said owner Stacey Gorbachev. “Life is too short to be uncomfortable in your own body! I am passionate about what I do! It’s important to me to have a central hub to meet new clients and to continue helping others reach their goals. It’s not just about the nutrition and good health though, it’s about the community and the friends who become family. My happy place is their happy place. Welcome to Central Nutrition!”

District Councilor Wildenhain welcomed Stacey and Central Nutrition to the neighborhood and wished them great success.

Councilor Vitali also wished Central Nutrition great success and said there is no better day than today to start focusing on your health.

Central Nutrition is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 7am-4pm; Tuesday and Thursday 7am-9am and reopen from 4-8pm; and Saturday 9am-1pm.
