Nekter Juice Bar, a leading wellness brand that offers a variety of vegan drinks, smoothies, acai bowls and other healthy beverage and food options, opened its first San Diego location June 21, 2013 at 834 Kline St. in La Jolla — turning a historically-inspired cottage into a vibrant and healthful neighborhood destination.
Nekter in La Jolla will celebrate its opening with complimentary 16-ounce juices and smoothies, along with a limited supply of the brand’s widely popular one-day cleanses. The first 50 customers will also receive $25 Nekter gift cards.
Founders Steve and Alexis Schulze launched Nekter Juice Bar in 2010 and have enjoyed a successful start as Orange County’s premier vegan juice bar. Since opening the first location in Costa Mesa, their delectable juices have satisfied customers in 11 locations from Orange County to Los Angeles, and now San Diego.
Additional stores are scheduled to open in other cities in California, as well as Arizona and Texas, later this year.
“For quite a while, we’ve seen La Jolla as a quintessential location for us to introduce the Nekter lifestyle,” said Steve Schulze. “This beachside community is a friendly blend of locals and vacationers who pride themselves on healthy living, from beverage and food choices to fitness and outdoor activity. We’re looking forward to meeting our new neighbors and building long-lasting relationships in this area for years to come.”
Nekter La Jolla will include the first-ever Nekter Cleanse Bar — a full service counter complete with a Nekter Cleanse specialist, who will treat customers to samples of the Nekter food and beverage menu, including its one-day cleanse, a delicious blend of cold pressed fruits and vegetables filled with as many vitamins and nutrients in a single day as normally consumed in an entire month.
In addition to the Cleanse Bar, Nekter has created a comfortable and casual WiFi-friendly patio, where customers can enjoy Nekter’s full menu of fresh juices, smoothies, acai bowls, bottled cold-pressed juices, artisan salads and vegan snacks.
Nekter also offers a two-, three-, or five-day Cleanse Program designed to increase energy and aid in the release of toxins. The customized cleanses provide a path to healthier eating habits, less sugar and processed food cravings, which in the future may lead to weight loss and enhanced well-being. Earlier this year, Nekter launched Nationwide Shipping for online orders, so people all over the country are able to enjoy the brand’s signature recipes.
