Get to know GOLO, the health and wellness solutions company from Delaware
Health and wellness are vital to our happiness, success, and communities. When people thrive, communities do too. GOLO, a leading health and wellness solutions company based in Delaware, understands this fact, and it is why community is a crucial component of their mission.
Jennifer Brooks, president and co-founder of GOLO, credits her success in the health and wellness industry to a lifelong passion for cooking with family and friends, often featuring traditional recipes introduced by her mother and grandmother. The experience created a sense of community and being open to other cultures, and it would later lead to an interest in the science behind food and nutrition.
“I learned early on that living a healthy lifestyle means understanding better what getting proper nutrition actually looks like,” says Brooks.
Board certified in holistic nutrition and holding degrees in culinary arts and mind-body transformational psychology, Brooks’ unique perspective is at the core of GOLO’s mission of empowering people by helping them transition to healthier lifestyles, whether by reaching their weight loss goals, gaining an understanding of how to incorporate exercise into their daily routines, or learning the basic principles of good nutrition.
The story begins in Delaware
Founded in 2009 in Newark, GOLO products and services have now reached over two million people worldwide. The company’s signature GOLO for Life Plan has become one of the most searched-for wellness plans in e-commerce. GOLO is also the architect of one of the most instantly recognizable TV advertising campaigns in its category.
Deep roots in the community
Although the company has substantially grown its national presence, GOLO remains a fixture in the Delaware community.
An advocate for good corporate citizenship and giving back locally, GOLO makes finding meaningful ways to support the community a company priority, including its support for the Delaware chapters of the Ronald McDonald House and the Special Olympics.
The company recently announced a $20,000 donation to support the Food Bank of Delaware in their fight to combat hunger and food insecurity in Delaware. In addition to supporting local food distributions, the donation will focus on the emergency food needs of military families and veterans residing in Delaware via community-based mobile food pantries. GOLO’s donation will also benefit The Food Bank of Delaware’s Backpack Program, which provides food year-round to children in need for weekends and holidays when school is not in session, and when federal school meal programs are not available.
GOLO also encourages employees to seek out and volunteer with organizations in their own communities, specifically community-based organizations that support health and wellness. It’s yet another way GOLO believes it can give back to the community.
“When it comes to transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, no one does it on their own which is why GOLO emphasizes the importance of community,” Brooks explains. “We also believe being a successful company means being an active and supportive member of your local community.”
