Russell Wilson Bringing NYC Juice Company to University Village This Fall

But will he make outlandish health claims about it like he did with Recovery Water?

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is behind a local branch of NYC-based juicery Juice Press, set to open in the University Village mall this fall. The shop will dole out a variety of organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, soups, and snacks, all aimed at health-conscious consumers in the former home of Evolution Fresh, the ill-fated Starbucks-backed juice bar chain.

At 2620 NE University Village Street, patrons can order items like smoothies made from almond milk and coconut water; acai bowls; nutrition supplements; salads; and soups. Juices come in a pre-bottled format, or can be made to order. Here’s hoping Wilson doesn’t make any outlandish claims about this stuff a la his absurd assertions about Recovery Water preventing or healing concussions.

The U Village is certainly keeping things interesting on the food and drinks side of the retail spectrum lately. Exciting new additions include Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, which opened earlier this month; Rachel’s Ginger Beer, with spicy fried chicken sandwiches from fried foods master Mark Fuller of Ma’Ono; and an outpost of Eric Banh’s Vietnamese sensation Ba Bar.
