Founded in Los Angeles in 2010, Pressed Juicery has more than 60 locations across the country, but all their juices are cold-pressed in California—close to the farmers who provide much of the produce.
What to Order: The most popular juice is Greens 3 (made with apple, celery, cucumber, ginger, kale, lemon, parsley, romaine and spinach). “This juice is a great choice for anyone who is new to juicing,” explains Hayden Slater, Pressed Juicery CEO and co-founder. “If you’re not a ginger fan, our Greens 2 features all of the same ingredients minus the ginger.”
Price: $6.55 for 16 oz.
Ordering Tip: Slater suggests adding a juice to your daily routine when it’s most convenient for you. “For some people, [that might mean] replacing their morning coffee or afternoon snack with a green juice...for others, it might just be adding in a weekly juice. Regardless of your preference, simply selecting that nutrient-dense juice means you’re on the right track.”
