The original Juice Press has closed
The very first Juice Press, which debuted at 70 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue in 2010, is now for rent.
The plant-based food and beverage brand, with more than 80 locations in seven states now, had its humble beginnings in the East Village. Before opening the First Street shop in 2010, JP founder Marcus Antebi put up signs announcing a Robot Daycare and NY Academy of Mime, among other things, coming soon.
This location has been closed since someone broke in and looted the space in early June.
JP recently launched the JP Organic Market online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
