A business that will serve house-made juices, smoothies, and açaí bowls is nearing completion on its new location in east Ocala.
Kwench Juice Cafe is currently under construction at 736 NE 36th Avenue, in the Forty East Shopping Center in east Ocala.
Owned and operated by Amber and Bryan Ward, the business owners say their new shop is “getting closer everyday,” and they hope to open it soon.
Kwench’s menu features a variety of raw juices, including “straight up” options of carrot, apple, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and pear.
Among the juice flavors and concoctions created daily is “Lifeblood,” which is made with raw beets, apples, carrot, ginger, and lemon.
In addition to raw juices, the business features juice shots and juice cleanses, which consist of five regular-sized juices and one large smoothie.
Kwench also serves a variety of raw smoothies, juice shots, and açaí and pitaya bowls.
The juice franchise currently has nearly two dozen locations across the United States, including five others in the state of Florida. The Ocala location will mark the franchise’s first foray into north central Florida.
Kwench joins multiple other businesses in the restaurant industry that are in various stages of development across Marion County.
