If you’re looking for a juice with all organic, raw ingredients, Native Cold Pressed is the place to be. Native Cold Pressed began because owners Erin Thacker and Nicole Salvo Davis wanted a really convenient raw and organic option for Columbus.
Yoga is also a big inspiration for Native Cold Pressed, and for them, yoga and fresh juice go hand in hand. When they opened Native, the owners knew they wanted to combine the two, as they are both certified teachers.
Owner Nicole Salvo Davis talked about how their roots really began with the owners’ common interest in yoga. Currently, they offer classes within the Columbus community and serve their juice for a refreshing post-class pick-me-up. Like yoga, they have designed their menu to “lift the minds, bodies, and overall quality of life of [their] customers,” as stated their company mission.
At Native Cold Pressed, every ingredient matters. When it comes to sourcing ingredients, Native Cold Pressed sources from places that serve entirely organic items.
“For example, when it comes to sourcing nuts, we source our almonds from Spain because they are the most pure, unpasteurized almonds you can purchase,” explained Davis. “We want our juice to be the best juice in Columbus, with the best ingredients.”
Besides juice, customers can also purchase coconut shakes, nut milks, smoothie bowls, protein bites, and salads all made with top notch, organic ingredients. Native Cold Pressed also has the option for customers to customize their own juice cleanse.
Making a smaller ecological footprint is also important to the owners of Native Cold Pressed. All juices are served in glass bottles that customers can return the bottles to be reused by Native.
The Short North Arts District just feels like home for Native Cold Pressed.
“The Short North Arts District is such an urban, arts-inspired area. We felt at home here,” Davis said. “We wanted to be in an urban environment but still have that neighborhood feel, [and] the District is that place for us.”
