The owner-founder of JuiceGo on 9th Street dies

JuiceGo opened in late February at 333 E. Ninth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

Several readers had noticed that the storefront, which sells a variety of made-to-order cold-pressed juices, smoothies, salads and sandwiches, hasn't been open lately. There hasn't been any sign on the storefront noting a temporary closure.

Sadly, it turns out that founder-owner Satish Patel died on April 9.

There's no word at the moment when/if JuiceGo might reopen.

In announcing the signing of the 10-year lease here last August, Eastern Consolidated noted:

“JuiceGo is a groundbreaking concept because its owner/founder Satish Patel has developed a unique cold press juicing device that produces 100 percent fresh and nutrient-filled cold pressed juices that are made-to-order on site. Mr. Patel has extensive experience in the health food industry, having owned one of the largest produce markets in New Zealand. He’s also spent 15 years managing and owning a number of hospitality businesses in the United States, and decided to open his first JuiceGo shop in New York City.”
