Plymouth Teen Opens Healthy Snack Business During Pandemic

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Alexandra Phaneuf is just 18 years old and she's an athlete, personal trainer and you now can add entrepreneur to that list. 

She is the founder of Go2 Nutrition based in Plymouth.

Phaneuf makes healthy snacks and nutritional bars right out of her home. She says this project got underway during the pandemic after Covid-19 interrupted her first year at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.

"I got sent home because of Covid and I knew it was a perfect opportunity to really take advantage of everything I had been planning," Phaneuf said.

Now her small business is up and running. "We've been making everything, packaging everything and I've had a couple friends help out and we've been delivering everything," she adds.

Phaneuf says her mom is her biggest supporter. She adds with her success so far, she is now going to transfer to online education and finish her degree that way, to keep her small business rolling.

"I really don't want to leave everything I've started here, the support has been amazing, so I'm really going to keep the momentum going," Phaneuf said. 

She plans to hit the road and to give socially distant workout classes outside while spreading the word about her products.
