NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/-- Juice Press, New York's fastest growing organic food retailer, and Seattle Seahawk Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson announced a co-venture to open the first flagship Juice Press store on the West Coast in Seattle, Washington, scheduled to open in first quarter 2017.
Russell Wilson said, "I love how Juice Press has taken over New York City and the East Coast and now I'm bringing it out West. I've admired, and have been a small part of the growth on the East Coast, but now it's time to go change the West Coast with fresh and healthy non-processed juices and foods. The Emerald City deserves the best organic products. And no better place than the city I love... Seattle."
Michael Karsch, Chairman of the Board of Juice Press, added, "This is a significant West Coast launch for the brand where we will redefine the grab-and-go business in Seattle, with locally sourced products. We are excited to work with Russell and fuel his hometown, as he knows so well the city and the benefits of our plant based product lineup. Juice Press will bring a new green standard to the marketplace."
Marcus Antebi, Juice Press CEO and Founder, stated, "Juice Press' unique business model and 140+ products will bring a whole new vibe to Seattle. We are a customer-focused brand devoted to changing lives through education, product development and the highest standards in the industry. Our unparalleled selection and our short shelf-life allow us to provide premium organic beverages, foods, and supplements and has made us a leader, with an incredibly devoted fan base, in New York in a short time."
Kenny Dichter, Juice Press' first investor and Founder\CEO of Wheels Up, said, "I introduced Russell to Juice Press and its products and he became a big fan right away and had the idea to bring Juice Press to Seattle. Russell is an ideal partner as he brings as much knowledge off the field as he does on the field."
