There’s a new ‘nightclub’ in downtown Elburn, but it’s not the newest nightspot in town.
Protein shakes, tea, aloe water, and coffee are served instead of cocktails and wine.

“Our shakes taste great and don’t have the protein aftertaste that many shakes have,” says Heinrich. “I can eat a whole serving and feel full. A lot of healthy foods don’t taste good, but this one really does.”

The first business as a mother-daughter combination. Palmisano had previously worked in a business similar to Knight Club Nutrition, but she wanted to expand the business on her own.

Heinrich, who came up with the name for the business, said that “knight” refers to Kaneland High School’s mascot, and she wanted to incorporate that into the name.
