For many years, Felicia was plagued with the insecurities of being overweight. In January 2014, she received a magic-bullet as a housewarming gift and began making smoothies which initiated her journey of making healthy choices. The joy of making juice blends for her intimate community inspired Felicia to introduce her brand to the world.
In October 2015, Felicia transitioned her business from her kitchen to her first Brick and Mortar with the opening of the first Freckles Juice location in Bronx, NY. In 6 years, she has expanded her business to three locations servicing communities in White Plains, Westchester County and the Bushwick Area of Brooklyn.
Freckles Juice Founder, Felicia Forbes, is no stranger to the challenges that come with living a healthy lifestyle. As a mom and Business Owner, her ultimate goal is to inspire others that are facing the same challenges to make healthy choices. Her commitment to improving accessibility and the overall state of health and wellness in minority communities has led her to found Freckles Juice with locations in White Plains, Bronx, Brooklyn.
With Freckles, Felicia hopes to inspire people to tackle insecurities, embrace imperfection, and turn their passion into profit. “Growing up, I was teased for having freckles so having the opportunity to take something that was once an insecurity and grow it into a major business is fulfilling.”
Freckles aims to be more than just another juice bar; but rather a safe and healthy space for the community where Juice meets Culture. For Felicia, it has been an inspiration, meeting so many people in my community with similar struggles as herself. Creating a fun, healthy space to help bridge the gap between low income communities and healthier food options is both her passion and her purpose.
Freckle’s Juice specializes in natural smoothies and juices. The menu features organic ingredients and super foods that are packed with the vitamins your body needs to be at its best! The company recently entered a partnership with Marijah’s Farm to offer 500MG THC health and wellness products BLUE MAGIC Gummies, which expands their reach in e-commerce via Apple & Android. As part of the corporate culture, all employees are encouraged to embody the feeling of making something so delicious yet healthy, meeting people where they are and joining them on their journey to an overall healthy lifestyle.
