Whole Harvest has moved from a small space at 5 Caroline St. in Saratoga Springs to a larger storefront location at 419 Broadway, a spot previously occupied by Plum Dandy frozen yogurt shop.
“The move to Broadway just made sense,” said co-owner Kelsey Whalen. “The change to our overhead didn’t change drastically, but the change in foot traffic and sales has quadruples—sometimes five times the amount. It’s reaffirmed my decision to move locations.”
Whalen grew up in Saratoga and was living in Boston after going to school for dietetics. After moving back home to Saratoga, Whalen was disappointed at the lack of healthy options for a full set menu, as she had grown accustomed to living in Boston.
“We have health in our tag line along with history and horses,” she said of Saratoga Springs. “Yet there were no healthy full menus for people to enjoy. So I decided to go and do it myself.”
Whalen already had restaurant experience in food and liquor sales.
