Start a Juice Bar Business

If you are looking for an idea of what business you can start quickly, a juice bar is one idea you can seriously consider. With more and more people becoming health-conscious, a juice business is timely. How can you start this business? Learn some essential tips from our guide.

Many young and adult people are now becoming conscious about the nutrition that goes into their food.

juice bar business

Their reasons could vary from general fitness to wanting to look slimmer and fantastic, avoid diseases, improve overall vitality, and live longer. A juice business is very timely with this shift from foods with unnatural additives and preservatives to healthier ones.

Juice Business Structure

You can start a juice business entirely on your own. It would help if you have experience with juice preparation from working in a juice bar, but this is unnecessary. You can also buy an existing business or get a franchise. Franchising will cost a little bit more, though. If you have an existing food business, you can incorporate a juice business into it.

Juice Bar Menu

You don’t have to be a nutritionist or obtain a degree related to health to know that fruits and vegetables are suitable for the body. You can sell a variety of juices, from apples, carrots, oranges, bananas, celery, melons, and other fruits and vegetables. You can purchase juice wholesale from fruit and vegetable juice manufacturers or distributors or do the juicing onsite.

Similar Articles

You can even do both at the same time. Get juices wholesale from Norpac Foods. You can add vitamins and health supplements, such as those known for their immunity-boosting or antioxidizing effects. You can sell juices in several cup sizes starting at $3.

Juice Bar Location

You can open at any place frequented by people, such as tourist attractions, a kiosk in a mall, office buildings, airports, hotels, schools, beach areas, public markets, health clubs, and fitness clubs. Vending from a cart is another option you can take.

Juice Bar Startup Cost and Profit

Your startup cost will depend on how much you are spending on equipment (juicers and coolers), rent, advertising, and getting the necessary license and permit. You can start the business at $10,000. Your profit will depend on your total sales minus the cost of your ingredients and overhead. It could be several times your capital after you’ve mastered the operation. Adding other items, such as sandwiches, to your menu can help boost profit.

For tips and advice on starting a juice bar, has an eGuide that could help a prospective juice bar owner find resources for starting this business. The eGuide, which one can download instantly, costs $68.95.

  • YB said on January 10, 2011
    For those of you in the U.S, you would need to get your facility approved by your city's health department. This obviously means that you have your company established, premises rented and built out etc. You'll need to interface with the State Corporation Commission, city/county building departments etc. The health department will need to see a menu before granting a license to operate. In addition to that, a Certified Food Safety Manager will need to be present at the premises at all times. Google it for training materials and testing center information in your respective state. That's pretty much it. Find a couple of distributors for the ingredients you identified in your menu with the health department, source the equipment (depends on what you want to offer/serve) and start your business. At the very minimum, it will cost at least $5000 - $10,000. (fridge, ice machine, blender/juicer, 3 compartment sink, hand washing station etc) Good luck!

    Juice drinking is basically a cultural thing unless one is caught up in a thick metro community where variety of factors such as weather, traffic flow , social gatherings, habits do matter. Alcohol drinkers do not prefer fruit juice. Coffee drinkers do not care for fruit juice. It is mostly during a hot summer weather and if the pockets are full people do want a fruit juice. Not many Asians are fond of fruit juice as the whites. To do fruit juice vending, it is no rocket science. just an attractive kiosk + busy location + charming faces.
