St. Pete's first cold-pressed juice shop is officially open for business. Squeeze Juice Works opened its storefront at 675 30th Ave. N. Ste. 101 Thursday morning.
Customers can stop in for single or multiple juices Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m., or on weekends 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Each juice is $8.99 and comes packed with juice from 4-6 pounds of organic fruit and vegetables.
Squeeze Juice Works offers four fresh juices "on tap" — Daily Mean Greens, One Night in Bangkok, Cold Comfort and Lemon Aide — but regularly features specials based on seasonal produce availability.
The Best of the Bay-winning juice shop started as a service solely for family and friends out of co-owner Kelly Lessem's home. Creative Loafing got the lowdown early on, as Lessem's partner is CL's Creative Director Todd Bates. Squeeze grew quickly, and eventually expanded to a juicing operation out of co-owner Amy Losoya's home as well.
People could pick up juices from either home or at select locations around town. But with today's opening, fans of Squeeze Juice, new and old, can pick up juice in-store.
