Qwench Juice Bar, a California chain known for its juices and cringe-worthy name, is the latest in a parade of juice purveyors to set its sights on Houston.
An update to the chain’s website indicates that it has two locations in the works for Houston — one in the Heights at 5307 North Main Street, and a second in West Houston at 2660 Eldridge Parkway. Currently, Qwench operates multiple locations in California, an outpost in Virginia, one location in Dallas-Fort Worth, and another is set to arrive soon in Tyler in Northeast Texas.
As its name might indicate, vegetable and fruit juices with peppy names like Beetnik (beet, kale, celery, apple, lemon) and Thumper (carrot, grapefruit, ginger) are a fixture of the menu. Smoothies made with fruit and Greek yogurt, acai bowls, and protein shakes are also on offer, along with wheatgrass and lemon-cayenne-ginger juice shots. At some locations, solid food like breakfast bowls and burritos are on offer, but it’s unclear whether or not the Houston locations will have those options on the menu.
Qwench joins an increasingly crowded field of juice options in Houston, including Austin’s Juice Society and JuiceLand, Main Squeeze Juice Company, Clean Juice, Nekter Juice Bar, and plenty more. Eater has reached out to Qwench Juice Bar for more details on its arrival. Stay tuned for an update.
