Campaigns to Inspire: Juice Hugger Cafe

Smallknot is a way to help local businesses in your community achieve great things.  Invest in a Smallknot campaign and you’ll get great value for your contribution in the form of goods, services and special benefits — all while helping passionate entrepreneurs grow their dreams.  Today, we’re featuring Juice Hugger Cafe in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.  You can find them on Smallknot here

Juicing is all the rage these days, and with good reason.  With obesity rates and diabetes on the rise, it’s no surprise that people everywhere are looking for healthy alternatives and making more health-conscious food choices.  Cold-pressed juices made with fruits and vegetables are an increasingly popular way to lose weight, detox, or boost your veggie intake.  While it’s not unusual to find cold-pressed juices around the city, they’re often expensive and almost always in high-priced neighborhoods.

And that’s one of the reasons why Juice Hugger Cafe is so exceptional.  Opened in October 2011, Juice Hugger’s storefront is in Crown Heights, Brooklyn on Rogers Avenue, and they’re committed to bringing fresh and affordable organic juices to a neighborhood that often lacks a lot of healthy choices.  They sell their own line of cold-pressed juices and nut milks, and a variety of juice cleanses that will get you feeling energized in no time.  And with prices starting at just $3.50 for a juice, anyone can enjoy it.  Oh - and did we mention they deliver?  

Co-owner Carl Foster knows the power of juicing first hand.  Just a few years ago he was 5’9” and 220 lbs., and desperately looking for ways to get healthier.  After a friend introduced him to fresh pressed juices, he lost more than 60 pounds through a combination of healthier choices and moderate exercise.  When friends started asking him to make juices for them too, the company began to grow organically.  Together with his fiancee and business partner Kelly Keelo, Carl began bottling juices and selling them online and at festivals and corporate events.  Last year, they opened their first storefront and have quickly become a mainstay of the neighborhood.  

Juice Hugger is on Smallknot today looking to upgrade the cafe and make it more comfortable for everyone to enjoy. Carl and Kelly are looking to build additional seating that will create more of a lounge area in the space, and they plan to upgrade their refrigerators, freezers and ovens so they can expand their offering and selections.  

Invest in Juice Hugger Cafe today and you can get great values on juice packs and juice cleanses.  It’s rare indeed for Juice Hugger to offer any kind of a discount, and this is a great way to jumpstart a healhty lifestyle.  Your investment will help these entrepreneurs continue to grow their business and bring even more healthy, delicious juices.  There’s only about a week left in the campaign, so now’s the time to get in on the deal!  

Feel good, get healthy, make a difference in your community.  What’s not to like?
