A healthy new option is coming to downtown Statesville.

Agave Juice Bar, which will be located inside Native Ceuticals at 109 E. Broad St., will open in November. 2 in an effort to provide residents of Statesville with healthy, local options for their juice and smoothie needs.

“I think it will help people adopt a healthier lifestyle,” said Talisha Marie Handy, owner of Agave. “It will help people have more options in this area if they want to supplement more nutrition in their diet.”

Prior to the opening of Agave, Statesville had no options for healthy juices and smoothies, let alone a local property. Residents thirsty for freshly squeezed juices should head to Mooresville for a juice bar.

Now, after months of planning, remodeling and recipe testing, Agave will first open for a smooth opening on November 2 before the grand opening on November 6.

“It’s so convenient (for Statesville),” Handy said. “They also know it’s coming from somewhere locally. All of our produce will be sourced from farmers as close to Statesville as possible. “

Agave’s menu includes 10 different smoothies, eight different juices, a handful of bowls, and a pair of health and wellness shots. They will also offer a few seasonal options at different times of the year. For example, when they open on November 2, they will be offering eggnog juice, apple cider juice, and pumpkin pie and apple pie smoothies, all with organic ingredients.
