DAVENPORT, Iowa — A new business is coming to town this week, and QC Empowerment Network is ready to help it open just in time to celebrate Black History Month. 

4th Street Nutrition’s ribbon cutting ceremony will be at its storefront, 207 W 4th St., Davenport, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1. 

The newest Quad Cities business specializes in health-focused drinks like iced teas and shakes. 

Wednesday also kicks off Black History Month, and the owners of 4th Street Nutrition are hoping to utilize their business to connect with the community while also empowering their children to take over the business one day.

Co-owner Jennifer Smith said, “Eventually it’s going to be for our kids someday. To work at first and then take over, but for my boys to know that you can be a business owner and you can be successful. You don’t have to live by what society is telling you that black men do or what black men deserve.”

Don’t miss the grand opening of this new, empowering QC business at 12:30 p.m.
