Clean Juice To Open First Alabama Location At Twickenham Square!

As promised, we have another exciting announcement about the Shops at Twickenham Square! Alison Dennis, who was featured in our recent Cabana Wax blog, has more news to share with Huntsville. And this time, it involves cold-pressed juices, açaí bowls, avocado toast, and other healthy fare.

“Our team can’t wait to open Alabama’s first Clean Juice location at Twickenham Square,” said Alison, co-owner and general manager of Clean Juice. “In Huntsville, we have a community that is always looking for ways to improve their health and wellness, and our store hopes to help people achieve some of their health goals in a fun and convenient way.”

A 1,200 square foot space, Clean Juice plans to open in August of this year! Very soon, people near the downtown, medical district, and Blossomwood neighborhoods will be able to drop in for a fresh juice and açaí bowl, or a pick up a quick bite from the shop’s grab-and-go bar.

The new eatery will be open:

Monday through Friday 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Saturday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Sunday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

What is Clean Juice?

When husband and wife team Kat and Landon Eckles were looking for a career change, the duo developed the idea of creating a juice bar that focused on providing fresh, organic options along with a guest-focused experience.

In 2015, the Eckles opened the original Clean Juice store in Huntersville, North Carolina. Three short years later, Clean Juice now has more than 100 locations throughout 16 states, with plans to continue expanding.

“The Eckles bring a fresh, trendy vibe to the Clean Juice brand that’s made it stand out in the market,” explained Alison. “They have created something truly unique, because it’s ‘health food’ that not only tastes great but is actually healthy. Customers can rest easy knowing that we’re using 100% USDA Certified Organic ingredients—meaning everything we serve, from our celery to our coffee to our cinnamon, is free from chemicals, pesticides, and GMOs. And we never add sugar to your drink.”

With its extensive menu of juices, smoothies, açaí bowls, and toasts, Clean Juice provides nutritional information for all of its offerings online.

Clean Juice has drummed up praise in publications like Huffington Post, Inc., and Bustle Magazine since its opening. In fact, the business was voted “Fastest Growing Franchise for 2018” by Franchise Gator; its success shows no end in sight.

The dream team.

Alison’s involvement with Clean Juice actually came out of wanting to situate Cabana Wax at Twickenham Square. She and her husband Garrett found the perfect space next to Beaute Nail Spa, but it had twice the amount of square footage they needed.

“As luck would have it, our friends Allie and Todd Hose, and Todd’s brother and sister-in-law, Tyler and Jessica Hose, had known the Eckles for years and had been awaiting the right opportunity to open a Clean Juice store in Alabama,” said Alison.

“After the Hoses introduced us to this awesome concept, we met with the coporate office and immediately knew we wanted to be part of the business. So, we pitched the idea of incorporating Clean Juice and Cabana Wax into the space, and the landlord agreed to let us divide it.”

It was decided that each of the six would have ownership in Clean Juice and contribute their unique skills to the project.

“Allie is a marketing professional, Todd is a former commercial real estate agent, Tyler works in finance, Jessica grew up immersed in a family of successful business owners, and Garrett and I are lawyers,” Alison shared. “More importantly, all six of us wholeheartedly believe in the concept and are passionate about making Twickenham one of the brand’s best stores.”

“Huntsville was the perfect spot for the first Alabama location.”

“On a macro level, the people of Huntsville are smart and they care about their health,” said Alison. “This is evident from the amount of interest Huntsvillians show in fitness and clean eating. On a more micro level, our space at Twickenham Square is surrounded by businesses that serve similar interests. People who want a 30-minute workout at 9Round or a quick service at Cabana Wax are likely to be interested in fast, healthy food too.”

Clean Juice will also benefit those who live and work near Twickenham who have awaited a convenient spot for coffee and breakfast items beginning at 7 a.m. on weekdays.

“We take customer care seriously.”

“The founders of Clean Juice created the business with very specific core values,” said Alison. “One of the most important tenets behind the brand is that we respect others by respecting their time. We want to be a place that you get in and out of quickly without sacrificing food quality.”

Each day, the juice bar will have a grab-and-go bar stocked and ready to go upon opening.

“The main takeaway is that you come first and side work comes second,” clarified Alison. “There will never be anything more important than you when you’re in our store.”

 Why choose Clean Juice?

Although Huntsville will have to wait until August to get its hands on a cold-pressed juice or a Beach Bowl, the owners of Clean Juice Twickenham promise it will be well worth it.

 “We believe we can inspire and motivate people by making clean eating enjoyable,” said Alison. “Whether it’s almond toast or a chocolate protein smoothie, we want you to have confidence that what you’re eating is organic, full of nutrients, and carefully vetted by the Clean Juice team.”

“Pet Wants” Pet Food Company Is Coming To The Avenue!

Attention, pet parents of Huntsville! The Avenue apartments on Jefferson Street will soon welcome a new tenant to the pack. Pet Wants pet food company is a new-to-Alabama shop that will provide high-quality pet food for cats and dogs, leashes, toys, and other select items.

“As the first Pet Wants location in Alabama, I am proud to meet the needs of our city’s four-legged companions,” said Kelli Smith, owner of Pet Wants in Huntsville. “I am genuinely concerned about your pets’ lives and I have personally seen the benefits of Pet Wants with my own dogs.”

A 1,170 square foot space, Pet Wants is slated to open in July 2018.

“It’s nutrition you can trust.”

Founded in 2010 by Michele Hobbs and Amanda Broughton, Pet Wants currently has more than 100 locations nationwide.

“Michele’s own dog had terrible skin issues due to allergies,” shared Kelli. “She was looking for ways to improve his health from the inside-out, and that’s when they decided to start a company that paid attention to the chemistry, quality, and sourcing of its pet food.”

The Cincinnati-based company’s mission is to “improve the nutrition, health, vitality, and well being of pets throughout North America.” And they are conquering that task one dog bowl at a time.

“Pet Wants is more than a pet store, it’s a pet nutrition company,” clarified Kelli. “We are dedicated to providing the highest quality food that will be in your pet’s bowl within weeks—not months. All of our food is free from by-products, corn, wheat, soy, and dyes. We make it possible for pets to get the most nutritious diet in a way that’s convenient for clientele.”

Speaking of convenience, Pet Wants will offer free delivery within a 50-mile radius of its downtown location, easy online ordering, and even have an auto-delivery option.

“If you choose, you can have our food delivered to your door or office every month,” said Kelli. “Maintaining your pet’s healthy diet should not be a chore. We hope to provide peace of mind—in more ways than one—when it comes to caring for your pet.”

“We slow-cook food to lock in nutrients.”

Unlike mass-produced pet food brands, Pet Wants orders small batches of food according to customer demand. This means all Pet Wants’ food in the shop is younger than eight weeks old. Customers can purchase food by the pound, meaning less food is wasted and every meal is fresh.

“Over time, the nutritional benefits of pet food naturally degrade,” explained Kelli. “Pet Wants’ food will only stay on our shelves for up to eight weeks. This helps us ensure your pet’s food is the freshest on the market and always nutritionally rich.”

Kelli also shared that an animal nutritionist is on staff at Pet Wants’ headquarters and monitors the quality of the food—down to its chemistry—in order to maintain the brand’s strict standards.

“Pet Wants ensures that every single batch is tested,” said Kelli. “I can confidently say that if it’s at my store, it’s quality.”

“Let’s discuss your pet’s needs.”

First and foremost, Kelli said she wants to work with and help animals in need.

“I welcome consultations with our clients via phone or in-person at the store so we can discuss which foods will most benefit their pets in the long run. We can take a close look at the contents of the food they are feeding their pet and figure out ways to improve the diet together.”

Different formulas for cats and dogs are available in store, along with a line of salves, balms, and sprays for dogs that are made from therapeutic-grade essential oils. Be sure to ask Kelli about Pet Wants’ all-natural mosquito, flea, and tick spray.

“I create the balms and sprays in-house,” said Kelli.

“Bring your pets and hang out with us!”

When asked why she chose downtown for her home base, Kelli raved about the area’s community feel.

“Opening the shop in downtown was always a goal of mine,” said Kelli. “There’s nothing better than the family vibe and support that businesses give each other here. I believe our location will help us reach the most pets possible with quality nutrition, while still providing individualized attention to our customers.”

Pet Wants will be a pet-friendly space that welcomes four-legged friends. There will always be fresh water—and maybe a treat or two—ready for your dog when you visit.

“Downtown Huntsville is an active, pet-friendly place,” said Charlie Sealy, co-developer of The Avenue. “The residents of downtown, visitors to the dog park and other parks, as well as owners seeking the very best for their pets will find Pet Wants to be an exceptional boutique offering wonderful products and services.”

Why choose Pet Wants?

“We are passionate about your pets,” promised Kelli. “We’re fresh, local, and we want to be a valuable part of the Huntsville pet community. Our job is done when we see the pet you love begin to feel better, play better, and enjoy each day to the fullest.”

Stay tuned to our blog and social media channels for more updates on Pet Wants! We will be sure to send out information on the grand opening soon. Be sure to follow Pet Wants on Facebook and Instagram.

Cabana Wax Coming To Twickenham Square!

“Necessity is the mother of invention,” quoted Alison Dennis, Founder of Cabana Wax. “Waxing should not be reserved for special occasions. It should be convenient and affordable. That’s why I’m opening Cabana Wax in Twickenham Square—to create an experience that truly puts the customer first and makes a consistent waxing routine realistic for more people.”

Located off Gallatin Street near Huntsville Hospital, the Twickenham Square shopping center is already home to well-known spots like Cajun Steamer, Mei Wei, Taco Mama, Pants Store, the Artisan apartments, and—of course—Publix. But a new business, Cabana Wax, is scheduled to open in early August of this year!

The 1,000 square foot studio will have six treatment rooms and receive clients:

Monday – Thursday 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Friday 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Sunday Noon – 6 p.m.

A wax studio designed from the consumer’s perspective

Alison, a 29-year-old entrepreneur and former lawyer, made plans to create the new wax studio after moving to Huntsville in 2017. “I discovered the quick and affordable waxing services I was accustomed to in larger cities were not readily available,” she said.

With the idea of a new wax studio budding in her mind, Alison sat down and made a list of ways a hypothetical new studio could optimize the customer experience.

“For example, Sunday is a big ‘get-things-done’ day for me,” she stated. “Most spas are closed on Sundays, so I knew I wanted my studio to be open every day. That would make it easier for clients to find times that worked for them.”

“I also wanted to keep it simple: no memberships, no introductory rate followed by a steeply increased rate on the second visit—just a consistent low price with no obligations.”

Alison also wanted a centralized location near other businesses that would have great synergy with her own and would be convenient to the downtown, Blossomwood, and medical district neighborhoods. For her, the Shops at Twickenham Square was the perfect place to develop her vision.

“The foot traffic at Twickenham is incredible, and I knew Cabana Wax would feed off nearby businesses like 9Round and Publix,” Alison explained. “In addition to taking clients by appointment, we will be a great option for walk-in clients who want to take advantage of our services between errands. And our business model creates a situation where that’s actually possible.”

In addition to its convenient location and hours, Cabana Wax also promises affordability.

“It’s hard for many people to pay $90 a month for basic beauty habits like hair removal,” said Alison. “By cutting down the cost on all of our services, we are giving more people the opportunity to try new things and make them part of a routine they can afford to sustain. At our prices, a customer can get a high-quality Brazilian wax and lash perming service for the same cost as just a Brazilian at other spas.”

Waxing services at Cabana range from $5 to its signature $50 Brazilian. Customers can also try a few other services the Cabana Wax team has carefully selected as complements to its full-service wax menu, including dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, lash perming and lash tinting, all of which will be offered for less than the typical cost.

With plans to open by August, the team has already secured a studio manager, an experienced esthetician who will train Cabana’s staff to maintain the brand’s promises from day-to-day.

It’s about you

When asked why Huntsville should use Cabana for all their waxing needs, Alison had one thing to say.

“Cabana Wax is about you,” she guaranteed. “We will help you amplify your natural beauty while showing respect for your time and money.”

 Stay tuned to our blog, because we will be sharing another space coming to Twickenham Square very soon!

Domaine South Relocates To Downtown Huntsville Square!

“The best wines are the ones shared with friends.” – Unknown

“There’s a French term that describes our type of shop,” explained Kristian Denis, Curator and Co-Owner of Domaine South. “It’s called ‘cave à manger’, and Paris is dotted with many neighborhood spots like ours. Yes, we are a fine wine shop. But we will also have small plates, coffee, tea, locally made goods, cookbooks, and more. Domaine South will be the perfect place on the square to unwind at any time of day.”

Husband and wife owners Kristian and Mike Denis first opened Domaine South’s doors in 2015 on Cleveland Avenue but quickly outgrew the space. After relocating next door, the business took off as they added artisanal cheeses to the menu and began to offer locally made art, pottery, and other small gifts.

The new location of Domaine South on the square.

Now, the couple plans to add an innovative wine-by-the-glass program to the business. But first, they needed to find a location that would make the feat possible.

“We looked at adding it to our current space, but we quickly discovered there was no way to make it work the way we wanted,” insisted Kristian. “It became a matter of waiting for the perfect space to open up, and we’ve always had our eye on Downtown Huntsville proper.”

The cozy new shop on the square will be in a 1,200 square foot space on the first floor of 103 North Side Square. Hours will be from mid-morning until after dark, and they are tentatively scheduled to open in July of this year!

Our focus sets us apart.

With a spotlight on smaller production and old-world wines, Domaine South strives to fill its shelves with thoughtfully curated selections. They have been building their knowledge since the 90s through experience at wholesale companies and creating wine lists for restaurants.

“My father was in the military and I grew up in Europe,” said Kristian. “That’s where I was first exposed to an appreciation for quality wine. I believe the team at Domaine South has a unique depth of experience in both the wine and food industries. We always encourage customers to bring in their menus so we can help them find the perfect pairings for a dinner party or event.”

At Domaine South, you will find a wide range of wines from France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, Portugal, Greece, California, Oregon, Washington, and much more. If it passes the rigorous testing of the curators, it makes it to the shelves for all to enjoy.

“Almost every wine we carry is sustainably grown, organic, or biodynamic,” stated Kristian. “A large part of ensuring the quality of wine starts with how it’s being grown. We pay attention to that and always take it into consideration.”

For us, it’s about bringing people together.

The future wine bar at the North Side Square space will offer downtown residents and professionals another place to relax, connect with friends, or simply pick up a bottle of wine for dinner on the way home. There will also be an outdoor patio space and seating inside.

“Our new location will allow us to better serve our guests with even more offerings,” assured Kristian. “We will have the new wine bar—of course—where people can order wine by the glass. But we will also have charcuterie, cheeses, coffee, tea, desserts, and a small brunch on the weekends. We plan to add more to our retail side of the business with even more locally made gifts.”

The wine shop also hopes to be the go-to spot for supplies when it comes to popular Downtown events like Concerts in the Park.

“We are thrilled to welcome yet another unique and thriving concept to the downtown community,” said Wesley Crunkleton, Principal and Leasing Agent at Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate. “Domaine South is a great addition to the diverse landscape of businesses that make downtown a well-known destination for retail, dining, and entertainment.”

We will always keep our Southern hospitality and flair.

Domaine South plans to source its coffee, tea, and desserts from Southern makers in order to preserve its support of locally made goods and Southern hospitality.

“We want to be here for any and all questions our customers have,” guaranteed Kristian. “We care about passing on that Southern hospitality and doing everything we can to find you the perfect wine.”

Domaine South is still open at its current location on Cleveland Avenue at AM Booth’s Lumberyard and will continue to be open until its move to the downtown square.

“We couldn’t have accomplished this growth without the support of our customers,” Kristian added. “Come by and chat with us when we open. We promise a relaxing, enjoyable experience. You may even discover a new favorite wine or two.”
