Southern Sqweeze To Open 2nd Location In April

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

As cold-pressed juice and raw foods café Southern Sqweeze approaches one year of being in business at its 1209 Tremont Street location, a second location at Miller Plaza is now set to open in April.

Southern Sqweeze was the first Chattanooga establishment to provide fresh cold-pressed juices using a hydraulic press. In their first year of business, they have expanded beyond cold-pressed juices, raw foods and smoothies, providing cleanses and one-on-one health coaching. They also provide a variety of informational classes, sharing their knowledge of nutrition and tips for a healthy lifestyle.

Owner Kelsey Vasileff said, “Choosing Miller Plaza as our second location was an easy decision. We’ve been serving the North Chattanooga community for the past year, and we wanted to be more accessible to the business community in downtown Chattanooga, providing healthy food options that are convenient to their places of work.”

“Miller Plaza is a hub of activity in City Center and new establishments like Southern Sqweeze are highlighting its unique, local experience,” said Amy Donahue, River City Company Marketing and Communication manager. “The healthy and tasty options provided by Southern Sqweeze will be an asset for the plaza, and we are excited for them to join the growing mix of options in City Center.”

In addition, a one-year anniversary celebration will be held at Southern Sqweeze’s Tremont Street location on May 9, from 8 a.m.5 p.m. The Owner Vasileff said, “Our one-year celebration is a way of saying thank you to all of our amazing customers. We’ll have amazing deals, raffles and door prizes all day long and can’t wait to celebrate with all of you!”

Roy Exum: ‘We’ll Lose The Senate!’

A guy who I admire and respect wrote me yesterday. He had just read my story defending Bob Corker for honoring “The Code” due to his true friendship with Phil Bredesen. He is also no stranger to my vivid dislike of the Republican choice to replace Corker in the Senate. Marsha Blackburn is no match against Bredesen on any tier and it is clearly the Republican Party itself that has ... (click for more)
