3. Sip Social

You may have heard about (or visited!) Magic City Nutrition. The shop opened in the spring of 2019 at the Battery in Birmingham. Well, say hello to its soon-to-be sister—Sip Social Trussville.

It’s still up in the air as to where in Trussville the store will be located, but according to co-owner Britni Liberton, the goal is to open before the end of 2020.

In keeping with Magic City Nutrition, Sip Social will offer quick-grab items like protein shakes and energizing teas.
