John and Vui Hunt of I Love Juice Bar

Juice Bar is overwhelmingly plant-based, gluten-free, organic when possible, and always uses 100% whole fruits and vegetables from scratch.  Nothing processed, nothing yucky.  Simply said, we are an “I want to eat healthy and feel great” type place, offering yummies like our Super Greens juice made with locally-grown wheat grass, or our superfood Kale Quinoa Salad with spinach, organic quinoa and fresh-juiced, house-made lemon dressing.  Whether you want a quick smoothie on the go, a growler of fresh juice for your fridge or a full sit-down delicious meal, we are truly delighted to offer great-tasting, super-nutritious juices, smoothies and foods – if your favorite thing is not on our menu, just let us know!  …we have fun with what we do and look forward to being of service to you in any capacity.  Have fun, be amazing!



For several years, John and Vui Hunt dreamed of opening a fun business in Nashville after moving home from Atlanta.  John recalls, “Corporate jobs were not working well for me. I was stressed out, eating poorly and very overweight. We dreamed of starting our own business.”  Missing the fulfillment and fun of Vui’s Atlanta-based, vegetarian restaurant Veggieland, they longed for something to replace the purpose and passion they once had.  Coincidentally, John watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and was inspired to start juicing the very next day. “I started losing weight and very quickly felt better than ever, my energy levels went sky high!”  

Days later they discovered a sandwich shop for sale outside Nashville and it dawned on them to jump right in. Vui explains, “Nothing changes if nothing changes, and it was simply a now or never type of thing for us.”  Once that sandwich shop was officially their own, six weeks later they opened their doors to family and friends - and I Love Juice Bar was born!  They poured every waking moment, every ounce of energy into their business, and to date - with a growing Juice Bar family - are working hard, having a great time and offering fantastically yummy juices, smoothies and foods to their customers and new friends.

Along with their two little girls and two spoiled rotten dogs, John and Vui love calling Nashville home – and look forward to meeting you at I Love Juice Bar.
