Opening a juice delivery business seems reasonably straightforward. You’re a certified Juice Therapist or working towards it. You are legit and have credibility and a fire in your soul to make it in the health and wellness industry.
All you have to do is make juice and sell it. Easy money, right?
Starting a Juice Delivery Business is one of the most accessible ways to begin a new juice business. But there are some things that you need to consider before opening your own juice delivery business.
Know Your Local Health Laws Concerning Raw Juice
The laws differ significantly between regions and states, no matter what country you live in. Some countries are strict and have many caveats to understand before you jump in. Other countries are lax and don’t have many regulations.
The quickest way to find out about the health regulations that govern your area is to contact your states health department or even better, small business center. They will be able to direct you to the relevant information.
Consider the Business Model
Are you going to start up a home juicing company and use delivery as a service? Are you going to be a brick and mortar seller and have delivery as an added service? Are you thinking of having a commercial kitchen and only using delivery as a way your clients can receive their juice?
Be clear on what type of juice delivery business you want to set up. This is important. You want to focus your valuable time in becoming a success. Choosing multiple models scatters your energy and you don’t do well at all. A good tip is to start with one option and then aim to offer the consumer multiple options further down the line.
Have Access to an Expert or Mentor
If you’re just starting out in this industry, connect with a mentor to brainstorm ideas and strategy with. You need to respect them and be open to listening to their suggestions. They don’t have to have managed or opened the same business as you, just someone who has overcome similar challenges.
Consider engaging a consultant who is a juice expert. They can assist you to develop a business plan, connect you with others who have experience and knowledge, create recipes, and properly train staff. If you get Certified as a Juice Therapy with Juice Guru Institute you will be equipped with the information and the access to the expert knowledge to help you achieve stellar success.
Purchase the Right Equipment
To ensure your success, you need to make an investment in quality juicing equipment from the start. This will ensure longevity and cost-effectiveness. Buying the cheaper equipment might be where your attention is now, but you will pay for it later in labor costs, wasted produce, and further equipment expenditures in the immediate future.
Know the Costs Before You Start
The total cost of the produce and packaging you use for your juice should not exceed more than 25-40% of the product’s final price. Otherwise, you are not going to make a profit. Then it would help if you considered all the other additional costs such as staff and marketing.
Marketing Your Business
You will need to know how you are going to get the word out about your business. You can set up a website at a minimal cost these days and promote yourself through local businesses. You can also use instant delivery applications like Uber Eats.
But take a step back and use your creativity. You could start by giving free samples to a group or collective and see how they engage with the product. Get their feedback on how, when, and why they would buy your juice. Then you can invest your money in the right areas to make sure the juice delivery business is a roaring success.
Opening a juice delivery business is one of the most straightforward businesses you can open. Yes, there are some hurdles you will have to jump, but this is for every business.
Utilize your credibility as a certified Juice Therapist and branch out into a stream of income that will bring a smile to your face and freedom to live how you desire. All while you are helping others to find their optimum health and wellbeing.
