MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – You may know her through through her Instagram username as “YesJulz,” or, you may know her as the Miami girl who shot to social media fame on SnapChat. Regardless, if you hadn’t heard of Julieanna Goddard by now, you’ll get to know her as the owner of YesJuice, the latest juice bar to hit the health-conscious South Beach scene.

Goddard, known as “YesJulz” on Instagram, is a Miami-based entrepreneur and media personality who began her career by hosting events and scouting musical talent for clients. Now, she has collaborated with SHOWFIELDS, an interactive retail store, to create her latest venture, YesJuice.

YesJuice, which opens Saturday, May 1, is a six-month pop-up on South Beach’s Lincoln Road that will not only serve a plethora of health-forward bites and drinks, but will also be an Influencer-haven for connecting and networking with fellow online creators (and for taking great Instagram-worthy photos, of course).

“YesJuice truly is a direct translation of my current lifestyle,” explains Goddard. “As Miami changes and grows, so have I. I’m still all about having fun but let’s do it in a healthy and productive way.”

With indoor and outdoor seating, YesJuice’s menu will offer locally-produced, cold-pressed 12 oz. bottled juices curated by Goddard herself. The menu will also feature pick-me-up drinks, conscious eats, and creative cocktails. Plus, there will even be juice-inspired streetwear on sale by After School Special.

Aiming to elevate local businesses around Miami, Goddard has brought in some of her favorite mission-driven minority and female-owned vendors such King Patty, Indulge Mia, Nabati, and Melting Hippie Products.

Guests and fans can can also expect limited edition collaborations and “drops” for special food, drink, and retail items over the course of the pop-up. YesJuice will also host weekly and monthly programming around music, wellness, charity and education.

“I’ve created a space on one of the most iconic streets in Miami that I believe is a true reflection of the growing creative community,” explains Goddard. “I want to see more homegrown local businesses on this block, which is why I chose to invest here. It’s also another way for me to give back, connect and share my journey as a young entrepreneur with all those in the city who continue to support me.”

Made locally in Miami, YesJuice will feature four signature drinks, each $10: the “YesJuice!” designed for motivation and energy, “Pay Attention” for work and focus, “You Up?” to chill out and wind down, and “Never Drinking Again” for, you guessed it, recovery. All flavors come in biodegradable bottles.

As for the food on the menu, YesJuice will offer a selection of light, health-conscious snacks such as the Jackfruit Samosa ($4.50), 305 Avocado Toast ($15) and the No Cap Wrap ($16), as well as vegan offerings like a Mex-iterranean Dip ($10), Mayan Hummus ($10), and Let’s Go!-zpacho ($9).

YesJuice will be open from Monday through Thursday from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., and Friday through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
