Marquese Martin-Hayes pictured above & his business partner (who I cannot wait to meet, Olivia Gomez) are the co-owners of Jus Juus in Wicker Park! You take one look at Marquese and you know this guy is 'walking his talk' as far as health & wellness goes. You want to start juicing - you want to get in shape - and you want his energy! The good news??? You can have it! And Marquese can show you how! And ladies, pull it together now - get focused on the Juus!
I have reviewed Jus Juus for Snapshots of Wellness readers (go to tab 'Food' and scroll on down to the article) and your feedback was mighty impressive! For those of you who don't feel like finding that article (I know, I am the same way sometimes), Jus Juus is a raw juice bar offering juices, juice shots, smoothies and I am hearing salads are a comin', to patrons of the city!
I can attest that this is the best juice bar in the city and as we all know, there are quite a few options. The reason Snapshots of Wellness finds Jus Juus to be the best 'stop' in the city to get your greens on is three-fold: 1). The juice & smoothie options are absolutely beyond creative as far as the blend of ingredients. And the taste is phenomenal! My favorite is the Chocolate Lovers Smoothie! Each drink is packed with antioxidants and energizing healthy plant based nutrients! 2). Let's talk passion. I have never - and I mean never - met any business owner in the city of Chicago who is more passionate about what he is selling. Marquese genuinely cares about his clients and just exudes so much heart for wanting to create a wave of wellness in Chicago, 3). You can get your juice in whatever location is preferred....at the store itself or delivered to your doorstep. Typically with juice companies in Chicago, it's one or the other. I believe this is the only juice bar in Chicago that you can go to the location and/or have it delivered. And the prices are incredibly reasonable.
This past Saturday, Jus Juus hosted a FREE Sample Day for anyone who wanted to swing by to try basically anything and everything on the menu! I have never heard of another juice company doing this in Chicago....just sayin'. My boyfriend & I went and although I am a 'regular' at Jus Juus, it was fun to try many of the juices & juice shots I have never had before. You can easily guess what we ended up buying on our way out though, right? Yep, The Chocolate Lover's Smoothie (0:
