If you’ve contemplated starting a juice bar and you’re looking for more information about the process, you’re in the right place. Even if you’re not sure, I’ll convince you. It’s healthy, meaningful, and will sure to bring back great ROI.

Here’s everything you need to know about opening a juice bar.

A good space/location

The first thing you want to do when starting a juice bar is finding the right space for it. Not only do I mean literal structure of a building, but also location. For instance, it might not be the best idea to open up a juice bar in the Midwest. Cold climates aren’t the best for smoothies. Living somewhere with warm climates, like California, however, is a sure way to run a profitable juice bar business year-round.

In terms of the building, you’ll want to make sure you have solid in-door and out-door seating. Since you’ll probably open shop somewhere warm, it’s incredibly useful to look for a space where you can build a patio. Otherwise, it’s up to you what you want the inside of your juice bar to look like—so have fun looking for a space you can design. Don’t think only in terms of aesthetic, though. Being functional is going to be imperative for your fruits and vegetables.

Find a good fruit and veggie supplier

Once you figure out where you’re going to set up your juice space, you’ll have to find a good supplier for your beverages. You should do your best to find fresh, organic ingredients from local vendors and farmers. Look at your options online to see what’s affordable for your budget and healthiest and tastiest for your customers!

Take your time with these. Link up with businesses you trust and are proud to buy from. The juice bar industry loves local support.

Business insurance

Something you’re absolutely going to have to invest in when opening up a juice shop is getting business insurance. Business insurance for a juice bar is basically akin to peanut butter and jelly. In the case of an accident at the shop, you’ll be covered. Whether it’s an injury, food poisoning, or property damage, being covered by insurance is going to save you a lot of money and stress in the long run.

Make a plan

When opening shop, you need to hop on making a nuanced business plan. Aspects of your business plan should include budgeting, marketing, insurance, social media, etc. You already know that starting a business takes a lot of hard work. But it won’t just come to you. You have to set it up for success. By mapping out a plan in the present, you’ll save so much of the process in the future. So, research your best strategies and plan for your business’s success.

So, you were hoping to open up a juice bar in near future. With these tips, you’ll be headed toward success in no time. Just remember to make a business plan, trust your fruit and veggie supplier, and find the perfect location. Now go juice, entrepreneur!
