When we forget how to be good to ourselves, we forget what it means to feel really good.
Gone are the days when southern living was synonymous with strolling through life at a slightly slower pace. These days, we are all pressed for time. We’re pressed to perform, pressed to succeed, pressing ourselves to do a whole lot more with a lot less time. When we’re feeling the pressure, it’s tempting to look for shortcuts. Often, in taking those shortcuts, we short ourselves by compromising our health, happiness and wellbeing. But not all shortcuts are bad. At Southern Pressed Juicery, we give your body a break without breaking your stride. Our goal is to give you a slow down without actually slowing you down.
Southern Pressed Juicery
Olivia Esquivel is co-owner of Southern Pressed Juicery. Olivia sparked life into her vision of a cold-pressed juice bar when she teamed up with Table 301. She and her husband, Anthony, are avid juicers and have always strived to live a healthy lifestyle but it was her role as a new mother that led her to co-founding Southern Pressed Juicery.
Personally, Olivia felt a surge of responsibility to provide only the highest nutritional foods for her new family. She then set out to have a direct impact on her community and city by creating a hip place where people of all walks of life could incorporate healthy eating into their everyday lifestyles.
Though this is Esquivel’s first venture into the restaurant industry, she owns a myriad of companies including A Public Affair PR, a public relations and event planning company based out of Greenville and Miami. Olivia is also co-owner of The Petite Parade, a children’s store based in Greenville. She is wife to Anthony Esquivel, owner of Copa Indoor Soccer (the only premier indoor soccer facility in the region) and Mommy to Luca and Alessandro, the cutest juicers in all the land. Try their favorite juices, Luca Lovin’ and Leo’s Leche.
