Nekter planning several juice bars in county

While the exact locations have yet to be announced, Orange County-based Nekter plans to open 23 new juice bar outlets before the end of the year, including locations in Carmel Mountain Ranch, San Marcos, Carlsbad, Del Mar and Temecula.

Last year Nekter signed a $577,780, 120-year lease for a 1,200-square-foot space in Bressi Village in Carlsbad.

"We look forward to sharing the Nekter life in these new communities," said CEO Steve Schulze in a statement. "Our goal is to recreate juice the way Starbucks recreated coffee. A neighborhood juice bar where you can enjoy a healthy juice, made to your liking, every morning, at an everyday price."

Named finalists for the 2014 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Nekter founders Steve and Alexis Schulze will create close to 1,000 new jobs this year with the opening of their new locations. Growth will continue in 2015 with more than 20 additional outlets scheduled throughout the southwest next year.

Along with the new stores, Nekter plans to expand its offerings to include new food and drink menu items featuring artisan salads and cold-pressed coffees.
