A tipster spotted signage for Juice Crafters, a new juice bar in Little Italy headed into the newly-constructed building at the site of the former Pete's Meats.
Turns out, the organic cold-pressed juice and smoothie mini-chain, with five stores in Los Angeles and Orange County, is flooding San Diego with a six store expansion that also includes La Jolla, Hillcrest, Downtown, Encinitas and Rancho Santa Fe.
The Little Italy, La Jolla and Hillcrest shops are scheduled to come online soon and open within the month, with the rest to follow later this summer.
The juice bar freshly presses all components for its menu, which also includes acai bowls and juice cleanses; the family who founded Juice Crafters has a farming background, so they're committed to using produce from farms in Southern California.
