Gear up for the Colts and juicing! Colts defensive end Kendall Langford has teamed up with Carmel couple Matt and Dee Brereton to open Juice Bar in Carmel.
Langford has two young children and said his family tries to be more health conscious and stay away from fast food, preferring natural food choices.
Langford said Juice Bar smoothies are nothing short of amazing, and his kids enjoy the healthy refreshments.
“You feel good about it,” he said. “It’s like a treat.”
Juice Bar offers 10 to 15 lunch-menu options as well as a wide-variety of juices, cleanses, smoothies and shots. Juice Bar also offers take-home cleanses and juice-to-dinner kits.
Langford said his personal favorite is Sweet Greens, a mix of jalapeño, celery, kale, spinach, cucumber, parsley and lemon. His next favorite is called The Doc. Langford said he tries to grab a Juice Bar beverage daily and for post-game day recovery.
Other Juice Bar flavors include PB&J, Orange You Smooth, Bunny Love and Smooth Beet.
“We’re offering a different twist to the restaurant business,” co-owner Matt Brereton said. “The response from the community has been great.”
Brereton said they are on track to open two or three more Juice Bars in Indiana between now and next year, with a goal to open five.
The Carmel location is the first in Indiana and the 34th franchise nationally. Owners are planning to soon open their second location by The Fashion Mall at Keystone.
The full list of owners include Langford, Langford’s wife Cristin, Antoine Bethea, a former Colts safety and current safety for the San Franciso 49ers, Matt Brereton and his wife Dee Brereton, a former Colts cheerleader.
Juice Bar is at 1420 W, Main St, Suite B, Carmel. Juice Bar is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more, visit ilovejuicebar.com/carmel.
