We are committed to serving our community and promoting a better-for-you lifestyle, and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the West Springfield neighborhood.”

Robeks President and CFO David Rawnsley said the opening of the Springfield location is a “testament” to the company’s “strong growth trajectory.”
