If you’re anything like me, when the alarm goes off in the morning, “snooze” is the only viable option. Sometimes, this decision leads to pure mayhem when a half hour somehow rolls by and you’re now late for work. Breakfast is the first thing to fall off the morning to-do list.
But we’ve heard it time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; it replenishes our energy and deters us from overeating later on. Which is why Ryan Crown created a convenient (and healthy!) way for Philadelphians to get their morning nutrition, even when running late.
Through his self-named juice club, Crown concocts juice each morning from entirely organic ingredients like cucumber, apple, lemon and ginger, with no added sugar. He then jumps on his bike at 6 a.m. and will come to your home or workplace to bring you breakfast in a bottle. He offers deliveries in sets of three 16 ounce juices for $20.
Now for the exciting news: Ryan Crown’s Juice Club opened its first store yesterday at 1425 Arch Street (yep, it’s right inside Sweat Fitness). So, if you’re not ready to commit in advance to a delivery but want to try out the healthy (and refreshing) goods, you can swing by and grab one for $5.50.
Unlike Crown’s delivery service, which gives you the choice of two juices, the store brings new mixtures to the almighty juicer, some less herbaceous than others.
“I created [some of] these blends for ‘juice-virgins’ that want to enjoy the benefits of my juice but might be nervous about the taste,” Crown explains.
But this entrepreneur is well-aware that some Philadelphians are seeking that intense health jolt. So, the store also offers more powerful eats like “super juices” (like the Lemon Ginger Blast!), “Superfood shots,” and “Nutri-Tonics,” which are herb-infused and have a more verdant taste.
