Meet Alexis Schulze, Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Nekter Juice Bar
Tell us about your story! How did you get started? How did you get to where you are today?
10 years ago with the idea that green juice is such an amazing energy enhancer and best way to get fruits and veggies, I wanted to create the idea of better for you, accessible clean products for my community. I wanted to share how amazing I felt with everyone. We started building in Orange County, CA first and quickly got inquiries about franchising. We held back for a few years until we understood the business a bit better and how we wanted the Nekter brand to live in many communities across the country. We are now so proud to be in 17 states and over 170 communities and growing! I am most proud of the integrity of our products and the ability to bring healthy options mainstream!
Who has been the most inspirational person in your life and at what stage?
Oh gosh there have been so many people that helped us along the way. The restaurant industry has such incredible people - I’d have to say Alice Elliot.
What advice would you give someone wanting to pursue a career similar to yours?
Follow your passions and stay true to your mission. And always trust your intuition!
What are the best resources that have helped you along the way?
Other business owners and female business owners who can share their trials and tribulations. Helps so much to hear others stories and not feel alone. It’s not always easy but it’s always worth it!
What are your top self care routines?
Yoga, meditation, boundaries with my time and energy and love a good skin care regime!!
I just wanted to share how great you feel when you eat real foods. The energy I had when I first started eating this way was something that I knew had to be more mainstream! -Alexis
