1. What made you choose Carter County and Elizabethton for your services and business?

Carter County is a vibrant area that has much to offer. As a local of this area, I felt that Elizabethton was ready for its first local juice bar! Also, we love being so close to Sycamore Shoals and the Tweetsie Trail!

As a local juice bar, we are focused on craft food items served with care! Our food is not only delicious, but also engineered for health! We make many items in-house including: cold pressed juices, almond milk, coconut milk, peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, balsamic reduction, along with many other items! In the past, getting a quick bite to eat meant something delicious but not necessarily healthy. We think fast food and healthy food can coexist!

3. How long have you been in business?

We opened the first Java Juice House in August of 2017 in Johnson City! With the support of our local community, we have been blessed enough to open our Bristol, TN location in November 2021 and our beautiful Elizabethton location in January of this year.

4. How long have you, personally, been working in the industry?

With no prior business or restaurant experience, I had my work cut out for me in 2017. Leaving the engineering world for my very first small business was exciting, scary, and challenging. However, owning a small business afforded me the opportunity to make many new friends while serving the local community and I wouldn’t trade that for anything!

5. Are you part of a franchise or are you independent?

We are proudly independent! We are an original concept and the first in the greater area! While being a locally owned and operated business has its challenges, it is very rewarding seeing regulars stop in for their daily smoothie. It has allowed me to feel like I built something that is much more than just a business.

6. What impact do you think your service/business will have on the Carter County community?

While there are many great food spots in Elizabethton, our focus is providing a healthy option! We all indulge in great delicious food but life is all about balance. Aside from the food, Java Juice House is equipped with beautiful bar seating, outdoor seating, and a friendly staff, so come see us soon!
