The Story

Sourcing Fayetteville with high quality, organic, cold pressed juice. That's been our mission for the past year!  It's been as simple as that.  Arkansas is the 7th most obese state in the nation and it doesn't look like that figure is changing any time soon.  It's not because us Arkansans don't want to be healthy, it's just that local options are very, very limited. Arkansas has some of the most genuine and loving people in the country, and I believe we deserve the best just like any other state. 

Our vision has now outgrown just a juice business. We plan to grab ahold of the fast food market and give the people of our community better options.

New Model

Some of the biggest barriers to eating healthy are time and convenience. With limited time and drive thrus available at every turn, its no wonder people choose fast food. We aim to break down the time/convenience barriers and believe fast food doesn't have to mean fat food. To that end, our menu will include a variety of ready-to-eat and grab-and-go,100% organic meals, geared towards healthy lifestyles with options for vegan, paleo, and gluten-free. The new shop in Bentonville will not only allow us to give the people of Bentonville these types of meals but also will supply our current flagship store in Fayetteville. The recipes we have come up with are legit! Here is a peak at some of the things we plan to offer on our new menu....still all organic and lots of raw!

  • Mason Jar Salads
  • Quinoa Bowls
  • Paleo Wraps
  • Chia Puddings
  • Superfood Smoothies 
  • Energy Bars 
  • Kale Chips 
  • Acai Bowls
  • Maca Balls
  • Cacao Truffles 
  • Soups

    So basically we will have a variety of options for all different lifestyles!

New Location

So after countless hours of searching we have finally found the perfect space as well as the perfect partners to team up with to get our Bentonville location up and going. The owners of a brand new state of the art fitness boutique called Free Ride Studio have graciously offered for us to be a part of their new space. FreeRide Studios is a cutting edge boutique spin and barre studio under construction at 3408 SE J Street, just North of Walton Road/J Street intersection scheduled to open this Fall.

Current Model

In our current model at our Fayetteville location, our focus has been selling cold pressed juices, cleanse packages, smoothies, detox waters, and shots.  Juices will and forever always be the core of our business but we strive to have our shop offer a broader variety of options. Here's a look at our current menu....
