We each have our hobbies and side interests. We enjoy biking, setting up basketball games with friends, creating music and the occasional night out in the town.
Our commissary is usually fun. We like to talk to each other, tell jokes and just have a good time while juicing. We don’t lose focus on what we’re doing, we just have a good time doing so.
The cold-pressed process uses no heat. We extract the juice with tons of pressure, never damaging the good stuff (nutrients, vitamins, enzymes). Comparing that to a conventional juice at a juice bar, they typically use a juicer with a blade that generates heat when pressing the produce through it. That heat then begins to kill all of the beneficial items that the produce contains. That’s why you’ll notice the color change on those juices and they don’t taste good longer than a few minutes. Ours stay fresh and tasty for a few days.
We love that each market has a variety of vendors that range from farmers, food/JUICE ;), to arts and crafts. Yet, all of them are unique.
We recently revised our menu down to 8 juices with a few nut milks in the works.
The majority of people like the sweeter, more palate friendly tastes so they go with Froot. Froot is made of Orange, Apple, Pineapple and Carrot (being the root in the name).
Marco – Carrot Boom
Ephraim – Greenlands
Anthony – Kapple
To the people that have juiced in their homes, we’re sure they can agree that it’s not the most pleasant clean up. There’s a lot of work that goes into preparing our produce. Once we receive it, we prep and wash all of the produce in an anti-microbial solution. From there, we weigh out our recipes to begin the juicing process. We take pride in our recipes, therefore we measure out our juices to the ounce to make sure they taste the way they should. To answer your question of how long it takes to create a juice, it’s a little tough to break it down but it does take a few hours to create a batch of juices for the day.
Some must haves of ours are Kale, Apple, Spinach and Carrot. Not necessarily together, but those are some of our favorite ingredients.
We started our business just close to 1 year ago. We noticed within our friends and family that they weren’t getting their proper nutrition and a lot of it had to do with them not liking vegetables. We started experimenting with juicing to see if that would get them to consume better nutrition and it worked. That’s when we decided that this would be great for everyone to do. We created some really good tasting juices with great beneficial fruits and vegetables.
There are 3 of us that started this business. We have been friends since elementary school, hence the name “Budz”. “Budz” is also a reference to taste buds, but we added the “z” to change it up.
We are a cold-pressed juice business that focuses on creating delicious tasting, yet healthy, recipes and getting them out to the people of LA.
Hey Raw Inspiration, our day is going great!
Cold-pressed juice is 100% juice. Unlike other “juices” made from concentrate or juices that have water added to them, our cold-pressed juices have NOTHING else in them but the ingredients on the label. We extract every drop possible from our produce without sacrificing its vitamins, nutrients or enzymes.
To plan out your business to the best of your capabilities, so you can have some kind of guide along the way.
We would advise others to keep working towards the initial goal. There will be unforeseen obstacles that you will have to overcome, but if you keep working towards that goal, you will sail right by those difficult times.
We want to cater to all of the different taste buds out there. We make our recipes for green lovers, to those that are more fruit lovers.
