Booming local juice company Buda Juice has signed on to open a branch at Mockingbird Station. This will be the fifth location, and it's set to open at the end of March.
Buda is going into 5307 E. Mockingbird Ln., Ste. 107, between West Elm and Park Cities Bank on the first level of the station, in what used to be the art/toy store Atama; that will be moving to the back side of Mockingbird Station, by Smallcakes and Urban Taco. The switch-off is slated for March 15.
Buda Juice is a collaboration between Bernard Lucien Nussbaumer, who founded Global Peace Factory Coffee, and Horatio Lonsdale-Hands, who co-founded ZuZu Handmade Mexican.
Buda Juice's products range from raw cold-pressed juices and handmade nut milks to raw soups. A release says that they pack as many organic vegetables as possible into their cold-pressed juices, and the milks are made with handpicked nuts blended with carefully balanced flavors and spices. None of those machine-picked nuts. Buda also offers one-, three- or five-day cleanses.
Their environmental stance is strong, which is rare among juice companies. Buda's custom glass bottles are 100 percent recyclable, free from chemicals that can seep into the juice as with plastic. With the Empty Exchange program, you get $1 off your next juice with every bottle you bring back.
Other Buda Juice branches are at West Village, Preston-Royal, Plano and Frisco.
Lonsdale-Hands says they're "thrilled" to be part of the vibrant Mockingbird Station community. Mockingbird Station's senior property manager Crystal Gray says Buda will be "a great addition."
