March 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // SANTA ANA, Calif. - Nékter Juice Bar, the popular Southern California-based, modern reinvention of the juice bar experience, has launched an innovative catering program, featuring fresh juices and acai bowls, conveniently packaged with everything guests need to create their own Nékter Juice Bar experience for any type of catering event. The first of its kind in the juice bar category, the catering program was developed to provide a healthy, customizable and interactive catering experience for a wide variety of occasions from corporate meetings and functions to personal celebrations and events serving as few as six people to 100 or more. The new catering program, which will be available at all Nékter restaurants beginning March 1, features made-to-order Fresh Juice Kits, Pop-Up Acai Bowl Bars and customizable Cold-Pressed Juice Packs.
Together with the company’s new comprehensive mobile app and plans to expand to 425 restaurants by 2020, Nékter’s new catering program is a key element of the brand’s mission to make its menu of fresh, clean, nutrient-rich and affordable juices, smoothies and acai bowls easily accessible for anyone who desires to live life well.
“Since we opened our first Nékter Juice Bar about six years ago, our guests have continuously asked us for a catering option that would extend the Nékter experience beyond our restaurants,” said Steve Schulze, co-founder and CEO, Nékter Juice Bar. “Our new Fresh Juice Kits and Pop-up Bowl Bars are made fresh-to-order and come with everything you need to create your own Nékter Juice Bar experience at home, at the office, or any type of event.”
Nékter’s Fresh Juice Kits can be created to serve groups of six to eight persons or beyond 100 guests and include a 1-gallon juice carrier and 10-ounce serving cups, straws, lids and a Nékter to-go bag. All of Nékter’s signature freshly made juices can be ordered including The Greenie, Toxin Flush, The Sublime, The Little Beet, Green Apple Detox, and The Buzz.
Each Pop-Up Bowl Bar kit includes everything that guests need to set up an interactive and engaging, “build-your-own” fresh acai or pitaya bowl bar at their event. The kits, which can also serve a few or scores of guests, provide the acai or pitaya bowl base, toppings on the side, all serving dishes and utensils, and a large Nékter cooler bag. All of Nékter’s bowls are available to order as Pop-Up Bowl Bars including Acai Banana Berry, Acai Mango, Acai Peanut Butter, Pitaya, and Acai Superfood Bowls. Guests can also customize their Pop-Up Bowl Bars with additional toppings, such as fresh strawberries and blueberries, bananas, hempseed granola, gluten-free granola, and coconut flakes.
Also available for catered events of varying sizes and purposes are customizable Cold-Pressed Juice Packs, featuring Nékter’s Grab N’ Go cold-pressed, bottled juices. Available in any quantity, the bottled juice options include Skinny Lemonades (Original, Turmeric, Ginger, Strawberry, and Charcoal), Cold-Pressed Juices (Classic Greens, Advanced Greens, and Lean Greens), Superfood Proteins (Original and Strawberry Pitaya), and Cold-Brewed Coffee (Mocha Latte and Vanilla Latte), as well as Nékter Spring Water and Nékter Electrolyte-Enhanced Water.
