- Juice at Juicebox
Nearly five years after Ian and Kara Bouchett opened their juice and smoothie bar in Burlington, the Shelburne couple is poised to launch a second location.
Juicebox is expected to open at 282 Berlin Mall Road by the end of September, according to Ian Bouchett. The eatery will adjoin Planet Fitness — an excellent fit for a business that specializes in vegetable- and fruit-based offerings, said Bouchett, 27.
"My wife is a raw nutritionist," he went on. "And we both practiced sports nutrition. Everything on the menu is designed with the cleanest food in mind."
The central Vermont menu will be similar to the one at 194 College Street in Burlington, where Juicebox moved in spring 2016 after the couple started their business a few blocks east at 126 College Street.
That menu features 10 juice options, smoothies and açai bowls. Customers can custom order their own drinks and bowls, Bouchett said. A top juice seller on the menu is the Champion, made with kale, celery, cucumber, apple, lemon and ginger.
"We'll probably have a couple of new options in Berlin," Bouchett said. "A few new items that are specific to gym nutrition."
The Bouchetts have been looking for a second location for some time, he added. As former owners of a fitness business, Cyclepath Indoor Cycling, they were drawn to a site adjacent to a gym.
"The clientele is similar to what we've had," Bouchett said. "It aligned us for a great partnership."
The Juicebox in Berlin will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
