JACKSON, Wyo. — Have you stopped by the hip, new, locally-owned shop on North Glenwood yet?
Eric and Zarina Sakai quietly rebranded The Phoenix and the Dragon in July, reopening their business as Utilete, a health-focused lifestyle brand at the Glenwood Street location.
They chose the name Utilete (the phonetic spelling of utility) because it means functional, useful and beneficial. These core attributes translate to the product offerings at their new store.
You’ll find high quality athletic and training apparel from top brands like Born Primitive and Hylete, premium proteins and supplements from Paleo Pro and athlete-driven CBD products from Beam. Need training gear? They are authorized resellers of HRT Tactical, who make highly-coveted, limited production, USA-designed plate carriers to elevate your fitness routine.
The wellness-minded couple has also been locally designing their own premium apparel and American-made artisanal skincare. Check out their newly launched winter collection of beanies, cozy hoodies and the softest joggers available in-store and online.
Their goat milk based skincare does wonders for the skin in Jackson’s dry climate, and are free of preservatives. The coffee scrub and goat milk masks are as close to a spa treatment as you can get at home, and way more affordable.
You might be wondering… what about the food??
Oh, they’re still cooking. They’ve turned their kitchen into a meal prep haven and churn out the valley’s only meal prep program, called Utilete Fresh. Healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free complete meals in convenient eco-friendly single-serve containers are available for preorder online. They publish caloric and macronutrient information so you can make sure you’re on track with your nutrition goals.
These aren’t your typical ready-to-eat meals. They’re flavor-packed, heartily portioned and nutritionally balanced. The winter menu includes Korean Beef Short Ribs, Sweet and Tangy Fried Chicken and Vegan Masala. Even better, the meals are one flat rate of $15.95 – and the more you buy, the more you save.
