Jugofresh continues its Miami expansion with the opening of two new stores in June.
The sixth Jugofresh will open on Wednesday, June 3, at 2516 Ponce de Leon Blvd. The 975-square-foot Coral Gables location will have intimate spaces, seating, and free WiFi. Jugofresh's Matthew Sherman says opening in the heart of Coral Gables is just good business sense. "Coral Gables is a very health conscious and discerning community. We have had great success with our Santona Corner shop and look forward to anchoring both sides of the area."
The seventh location of the local juice brand will debut in North Miami, at the Biscayne Commons shopping center at 14871 Biscayne Blvd. on Monday, June 15. The 859-square-foot store (also with free WiFi) is conveniently located next door to the new Flywheel and shares a shopping center with Oishi Thai and Ivan's Caribbean Cafe.
The North Miami location will feature a unique geometric design aesthetic. "We always wanted to do a box within a box or set of geometric shapes contained inside one of our spaces, and this space in Biscayne Commons offered us the opportunity to do this," explains Sherman. "The shop features our classic reclaimed wood as well as charred cedar wood images on Flavor Paper wallpaper around a glossy French tiled white box kitchen. It’s definitely the most dark and sexy of all of our designs.”
In addition to the opening of the new shops, Jugofresh is introducing a line of new juices starting June 1. Flavors include verano delicado (a blend of apple, coconut meat, coconut water, orange, and strawberry; $9.50), melon a tróis (cucumber, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, and lime; $9.50), mimosa detox (orange, grapefruit, lemon, apple cider vinegar, cayenne extract, and ginger; $9.50), pasteque y menta (watermelon and mint; $6.50), and watermelon niño (watermelon and lime; $3.50).
The Coral Gables location will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Store hours for the North Miami location have not been announced.
