Tips for starting a juice bar include developing a niche, coming up with a good menu, contacting the local health department and finding good vendors. Creating a website and using social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook are great ways to create awareness about and to promote a new juice bar business.
Creating a niche product is a good way to stand out in the juice bar business. Options may include health conscious, energy or organic juices.
Consider how many types of drinks and include healthy food options or snacks when deciding on a menu. Finding out about what kinds of juices are trending is a good way to appeal to a wide customer base. Create unique and tested recipes using a combination of fruits and vegetables to offer customers unique products that stand out from the competition. Keep in mind seasonal changes and off-season periods to stay relevant and profitable in winter and fall months.
Contact the local health department, and gather information about all the permits required to operate a juice bar. Work with a corporate attorney, tax lawyer or accountant to avoid delays when setting up the business and to guarantee compliance.
Lastly, find reliable and cost effective vendors to ensure that the business runs efficiently. Places to find vendors include orchards, growers associations and local farmers market.
