Juice and Smoothie Bar

Beverages are among the most sellable items that people can offer. Selling beverages like concentrate juice, vitamin c juice, and nectar juice is most profitable during the summer when frozen juice or smoothie drinks can be refreshing relief from the heat of the sun. This is the reason why it will be a good idea to start a business selling juice fruit and smoothie drinks if you are looking for a good and profitable starting startup business.

Here are some of the things that you need to remember if you are interested in starting a juice and smoothie bar:

Where to sell health juice and fruit smoothie

One of the most important things that you need to consider if you want to have a business selling fresh juice and v8 juice is to look for the best and most feasible place for your juice and smoothie bar. Make sure that you choose high-traffic locations where thirsty people can easily buy their smoothie fresh beverages from you. You will find crowded commercialized areas and similar places are the perfect locations if you are interested in starting a small business selling juice drinks and juice puree that is highly successful and profitable. If you facilitate your bar with drive-in counters then sales are sure to go up.

The Products that You Sell

If you are looking forward to starting a juice and smoothie bar, it will help if you plan and make a list of the juice recipes that you will sell and offer to your customers. You will find it a good idea to consider including it in your list of juice products freshly squeezed juice as this is among the most looked-for products among juice and smoothie bars. Make sure that you also have a variety of healthy pure juice so you will be able to cater to the demands of your health-conscious customers. Consider also adding in your inventory vegetable juice, Tropicana juice, mango juice, citrus juice, mango smoothie, orange smoothie, pulp juice, natural juice, and organic juice because these are the types of products that your customers will look for when they are thirsty and they want to have a refreshing drink in your juice and smoothie bar.

  • jen said on August 28, 2009
    I agree with John. Business plans need to be tailored to specific areas. A business plan for a Mumbai would look nothing like a plan for Cleveland. Furthermore, there are too many variables, such as location, sqf, costs and product availabilities. It's almost asking to fail if you need someone to send you a business plan. Pathetic. Doomed to crash and burn.

  • Nick said on January 17, 2010
    I own 18 juice bars throughout central Florida including one by Disney with a ton of foot traffic. Please, for all of you looking for business plans you really need to do your own research and learn about the business yourself. For example, every juice bar that I have opened I personally wrote my own business plan and researched my own stats. Yes, it's very time consuming some of the markets I have entered I actually worked on the plan for over 5 months on a daily basis before I even would consider opening the front door to the public. Each market is completely different and trying to find the easy way into a business will surely cause you and your business to end up adding to the 97 percent of new business that fail within the first year. Business is not easy if you don't have what it takes to learn and truly live your idea I highly suggest you stick with working for someone else. You'll end up with a lot more money in the long run. For those of you who are willing to put the effort in I would gladly look over and review your plans and offer you my suggestions from my 9 years of experience in this business. Feel free to email me at Nick77777@gmail.com however, I'm not here to do the leg work for you that you must be willing to do on your own. Again, if you are looking for the easy way to business success you are not going to be in a business very long. Look forward to hearing from some of you, hopefully, I will be some help for some like I was helped along the way. Nick
