What motivated you to open a juice bar in the heart of Baltimore City?
Back in February 2016, my uncle had a sudden heart attack and died. This was a big shock to my family. It also motivated me to get my health together because at the time, I was out of shape and not eating right. I opened my juice bar hoping to inspire and change the mindset of others like me—be it young men, African Americans, or inner-city youth—so they would make better food choices and have access to them in their own community.
