The Prettiest Juice Stop In S.F. Debuts On Union Street

With spring-cleaning fever fully upon us, getting one's closet — and body! — in check seems to be at the top of everyone's list. And, thanks to the brand-spankin'-new Juice To You shop, opening at 1994 Union Street this Saturday, April 14, rebooting your system is going to be a whole lot easier than you might have thought.
The tiny and beautiful kiosk on on the corner of Union and Buchanan is the brainchild of Charlie Gulick, a Bay Area resident who helped reverse the symptoms of his liver disease through a diet flush with fresh organic juices and vegan grub.

After launching an online juice shop and made-to-order cleansing program, Gulick's first-ever Juice To You storefront means fresh pressed juices seven days a week will be available for the taking.
Bonus: the kiosk is extra-pretty thanks to the design by Gulick's buddies Jay Nelson (see our profile on the amazing builder here!) and the dudes from Woodshop.
Take a look at the inspiring about-to-open spot after the jump, along with a few inspiring words from Gulick himself, then take note of the address below and get ready to get juiced up!

Why did you decide to open on Union Street?
"First, we knew that we wanted to open a small shop that had good foot traffic. Once we discovered this diamond in the rough, we had to jump on it. We are excited to be a part of such a wonderful community and the feedback so far has been great."

How would you describe what you're doing at Juice To You?
"What we're doing is very different from your standard juice bar. Each morning upon pressing all of our juices, we bring them into our shop. We are deeply committed to sourcing all of our organic produce from local farmers and making the freshest, highest-quality juices possible. All of our juices are produced on a hydraulic press, which is simply the best method for juicing. It allows for minimal oxidation while maintaining the freshest-tasting, most nutrient-rich juice."

How did you settle on the design of the shop?
"When we found out we were going to be able to open a storefront, we immediately thought of the guys at Woodshop and Jay Nelson. We knew that we wanted a handmade feel in the shop, and the only things that aren't made by hand are the fridge and phone. We have been neighbors and surfing with those guys at Ocean Beach for years. They are a creative and inspiring crew. We are really happy about how everything turned out."

What's happening with your juice cleanses?
"We are still offering our delivery services so folks are able to have juice cleanses delivered right to their door Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Our shop will allow for our customers to swing by and pick up a juice à la carte, or they will be able to design their own cleanse right then and there. We have designed our cleanses for people with varying levels of experience and time. We truly believe that a healthy juice cleanse is the best way to rest the body and maintain optimal health. And we think they taste great!"
