Aaryn Melnikoff and Justin Bowden dreamed up The Fresh Squeeze in a break room at work in Birmingham, Alabama. Tired of the hamster wheel of paying bills month to month, cubicles and Monday mornings, they set out to find a way to live their passions on a daily basis. Aaryn was exposed to raw juice out in California visiting family and Justin had experience managing The Old Florida Fish House. Their mutual belief in sustainability and a healthy lifestyle made The Fresh Squeeze a natural way to unite their passions. They launched the Fresh Squeeze by selling their raw juice at the Pepper Place Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings out of an old renovated trailer. Eventually, Aaryn and Justin scraped up enough money to buy a cold press juicer and they began bottling their raw juice.
Now, Aaryn and Justin are opening a brand new juice bar in Downtown Birmingham, Alabama to spread raw juice even further! There will even be a greenhouse on the roof to supply the freshest and most sustainable produce for the juice!!
This is a story of how absolute dedication to a belief and undying passion can overcome all odds and obstacles. We believe good health should be shared and the earth is worth sustaining.
