The sound of blenders juicing fresh produce, a simple menu and passionate owners can be found within the citrus-colored walls of Denton’s debut juice bar, Everyday Nectar.

When longtime friends and Denton natives Corey Bobbitt, a worker in the medical field, and Seth Ellis, a catering company employee, traveled to different cities for their jobs, they recognized an ever-growing trend that their hometown was missing: a juice bar.

They lit up at the chance to proudly talk about their new adventure.

“We’ve always wanted to start something together,” Bobbitt, 33, said. “Being friends for so long, we wanted to bring something back home and figured a juice bar was just the thing.”

Still smelling like new construction, the store hosted two customers, who slurped down their drinks.

The bar offers fresh juices, pre-bottled raw juices, smoothies and nutrient-filled non-alcoholic shots. Quinoa and hummus salads are also on the menu.

Local farmers supply the bar with organic wheat grass, greens, micrograins and sprouts, which are eventually juiced with a variety of fruits and turned into a healthy treat.

“Whatever we can get locally, we get,” Bobbitt said.

Juicing is the act of breaking down fruits and vegetables in order to get the maximum amount of nutrients. Ellis added that it is a great way for people to tastefully get their daily serving of fruits and vegetables.

Juice flavors range anywhere from the “Pear-Fect” mix of pear, cucumber, pineapple and mint to the “Mean Green Detox” loaded with spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, ginger and cilantro.

“We made the menu in a way that would put fruits and vegetables together in a tasteful way,” Ellis, 32, said. “We wanted items that had good health benefits, tasted great and were simple.”

The menu is further divided up into beginner- and expert-level sections.

The shop also offers one-, three- and five-day juice cleanses, during which the participant fasts and gets their nutrients from fruit and vegetable blended juices.

“We just hope to be consistent in delivering fresh and healthy options for the community,” Bobbitt said.

Located at 515 S. Locust St. in close proximity to UNT, TWU and the Square, the duo hopes their fresh shop will draw in the crowds.

After more than 20 years of friendship, Bobbitt and Ellis have found a chance to leave a mark on their beloved hometown.

“We just want to keep Denton juiced,” they said.
