Healthy shake business opens in downtown Hamilton storefront

A Hamilton entrepreneur recently opened his second storefront in the city’s growing downtown.

Derrick Partman’s Londyn Nutrition debuted late last month in a colorful, 500-square-foot storefront at 110 S. Second St., offering Herbalife meal replacement shakes, herbal teas and ice coffees.

The business is named after his smiling, energetic 7-year-old daughter, whom he describes in advertising photos as smart, fearless, brave and strong.

Partman, who opened R.I.S.E. Fit next door in 2017, said it's important for him to provide the community with another healthy option.

“It’s a great opportunity to have my daughter’s business next-door to my gym,” he said. “My goal was to teach my daughter and son about generational wealth passing my legacy down to them.”

Partman said he didn’t pick this location, it picked him.

“I just prayed about it and followed my vision,” he said.

Londyn Nutrition products include vitamins, minerals and protein, are vegan and gluten free and contain no juice, milk or yogurt, Partman said.

Recent offerings include a Caramel Banana Cheesecake shake, Pumpkin Spice latte, Cookie & Cream Frappe, Caramel Latte and a Strawberry Shortcake shake. An Iced White Chocolate Mocha has only 2 grams of sugar and 100 calories, but contains 15 grams of protein and is topped with sugar free or almond whip cream.

Partman said he started providing free samples of Londyn Nutrition products last December out of his gym.

“Promoting pop-up shops and having free samples events at the gym gave us an opportunity to help and reach the community,” he said.

He ramped up the opening of the Londyn Nutrition storefront over the course of several months, going from a few hours a day to its present schedule of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Reviews for the business have been positive, with Cincinnatian Kelly Ray saying Londyn Nutrition offers great service and a friendly and welcoming environment.

She said Partman is “very professional, upstanding, and overall a great person.”

Partman, who lives in Fairfield, said he plans to eventually open a Londyn Nutrition location in that city.

The business has five employees and is looking to hire more, he said. Interested applicants may contact Partman at
