Local fresh-squeezed juice shop closes after 20 years in Austin
Another homegrown Austin business is permanently closing this week. In a letter on their website, Daily Juice announced the pending closure of all locations. The shop's Westlake location is already closed, with its other three outposts to follow suit by Sunday, January 22.
Opened in 2003, the shop specializing in fresh-squeezed, cold pressed, never-processed juices would have reached two decades in business this year.
Citing the pandemic, rising food and labor costs, and high rent, Daily Juice thanked its Austin customers for all the support over the years:
"This really hurts," the letter reads. "We are so grateful to you all for supporting us through this journey ... We have been touched by your patronage, sharing of health journeys and passions for healing heads, hearts, and guts."
Customers can still visit any of the remaining three locations (3720 Far West Blvd. Ste 105; 8620 Burnet Road Suite 132; and 12921 Shops Pkwy) through Sunday for a final sip of their favorite juice, smoothie or acai bowl, or Daily Juice merch. Austinites can also collect larger mementos from Daily Juice through their restaurant equipment auction.
"If you’ve been thinking about a juice cleanse, now would be a good time to order one," the letter continues, also noting that customers can still redeem any Daily Juice gift cards, prepaid cleanses, or points through the weekend.
"We are sad to go, but hope we are leaving everybody a little healthier than when we found each other."
