Growing With The Community

Gabrielle Cataldo

Many of you probably know of Total Health Foods, located on Biddle in Downtown Wyandotte. They are a local grocery and nutritional health store, specializing in providing organic and natural whole foods, vegan and vegetarian options, vitamins & supplements, organic and all-natural soaps and personal care items, and locally produced organic and natural products. But what many of you may not know is the inspiring story behind their start, which has motivated them to expand their store to great lengths.

Total Health Foods started their business venture with a mission in mind. They felt that a store that promoted natural, nutritional health was missing in our community. Kathleen Gunther, one of the co-owners of Total Health Foods confided that she personally struggled with her own health. Frustrated with the medical fields and their answers, she decided to seek out solutions on her own. Soon she learned a new philosophy on health and nutrition. Her search for knowledge became a passion, which later became her mission: to help others through nutritional based health. With her partners, Annette and Janette Crossman, they opened Total Health Foods in 2008 in Southgate, Michigan. In 2010, they moved to Downtown Wyandotte and have been here ever since!

Over the past few months, Total Health Foods has been working on expanding their ventures to a much larger scale. This November, they will be opening their store with the addition of a fresh market, deli counter, organic meats, unique cheeses, gourmet foods, bulk food items, and expanding some of their current specialty lines in their store. They have done extensive interviewing and hiring to triple their knowledgeable, friendly staff so they can better assist their customers’ needs.

For a long time, their industry was known for vitamins, supplements, and essential oils - essential oils is actually still their  #1 selling item. However, they are moving towards more fresh products. To have a better overall health, it’s important to include fresh foods into our daily diets. Therefore, they have added fresh produce, fresh salads, and fresh meats to their repertoire.

Total Health Foods is an active member in their community. They donate to soup kitchens, participate in the Wyandotte Farmers Market, support the local schools and community theater programs, and are active members in the Wyandotte Business Association.They love to participate in all the local events that they can and being part of the community in which they live. Shop local, Eat local: they find it important to support others that support them.

Total Health Foods has been here in Wyandotte for over 5 years. One reason they came to Wyandotte was because it was like coming home to family everyday. “The city itself is supportive and always growing. We love being a part of it”, says Kathleen.

Total Health Foods is moving to 2948 Biddle Avenue, just 2 doors down from their current address. Come join Total Health Foods for their new store Grand Opening on November 20, 2015. The Ribbon Cutting will be at 4pm with City of Wyandotte Mayor Joe Peterson. There will be live entertainment and free sampling from a variety of vendors some of which include Liz Lovely Cookies and Thodoka. The public is welcome to attend the event and see the new store.
