The major players in NYC’s juicing scene

This week, NYC gets another juice bar when Williamsburg’s Tiny Empire opens a second location in Soho. But the healthy spot is just one player in the green game. From big chains to beverage brands, here’s a look at the juicing scene in NYC.


Billed as “New York City’s original cold pressed juice,” this chain first started blending up its juices and smoothies back in 1996 at its original East Village location. Since then, it’s opened four more Manhattan locations and expanded to Boston. Liquiteria.com
