Greenhopping will soon help you find (and buy) green juice in 10 major cities


The first app to map out juice purveyors is expanding its reach on June 30, to green-drink-swilling cities like San Francisco, Chicago, and Miami.

Come July, you may find it much easier to find green juice on business trips to Chicago and weekend jaunts to Miami.

That’s because Greenhopping, the first app to map out green juice purveyors, is expanding its reach on June 30 to include 10 major markets: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Dallas, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, and New Jersey (the only non-city). And it’s adding in-app ordering, too, so you can get your juices a la Seamless.

The app, which launched at the end of last year, previously just focused on New York City’s crazy vibrant juice scene. But as the appetite for fresh juice and vegan food has grown around the country, founder Catherine Cuello thought it was time to spread out.

Cuello began drinking juices and following a raw, vegan diet after a health scare at age 23. “I was living in Miami and there were literally just five places max that offered juices or a plant-based, organic menu I could choose from,” she says. “Now, Miami has over 65 locations for the customer that wants to have an organic, natural, wholesome meal or pick up a green juice or green smoothie.” (So apparently it’s not just all about the mojitos…)

Here’s how the app works: Greenhopping includes juice bars that make juices from fresh, whole fruits and vegetables (either cold-pressed or made-to-order with a centrifugal juicer), plus restaurants with plant-based, organic menus. When you log in, you can browse by neighborhood or allow the app to locate you, at which point it will show you what’s nearby. When you click on a store, it will provide location details, a brief description, and icons that tell you whether the juices are organic and if they carry smoothies, raw, vegan, or gluten-free food. (Soon, ordering will also occur on these pages).

After a few days experimenting with the app, I found that it showed me lots of under-the-radar places selling juice I never would have known about, although it was missing a few smaller, local places (my friendly neighborhood juice bar, for one). Overall, it’s easy to use and works well, and the less-than-stellar graphics are about to get an upgrade, too.

Of course, Cuello says the roll out in other cities is one step towards establishing a global juice map one day. So in a few years, maybe, if you’re in Iowa, you’ll be able to find The Purple Cucumber, no problem. —Lisa Elaine Held
