Green Point Juicery was opened by an exhausted — but inspired — restaurant worker in 2015 and has been fueling the Verona community with fresh, healthy juices ever since. Read on to learn more about Green Point Juicery in Verona and what to expect.

Green Point Juicery

The Owner

Owner and founder Eugene Onishkevich was working long hours in a New York City restaurant and had no energy to make himself a healthy dinner. After a particularly difficult night in 2011, he opened his fridge to find a green apple, half of a lemon, carrots, and celery.

Eugene realized he had everything right there to make his first-ever green juice. He felt, “full, refreshed, happy and smiling through my green juice mustache” thus inspiring him to open his very own juice spot. Since opening his first location in Verona, he has opened two more locations in Morristown and Maplewood.

The Atmosphere

The shop’s commitment to the planet and health is unparalleled, stating on its website, “Our team is committed to our standards and working hard to keep our full-fledged promise to sustainability. All of our packaging is either compostable or recyclable. We believe that taking care of your health goes hand in hand with taking care of our beautiful planet.” 

In August 2016, this caring business was set apart from other local restaurants by being the first business in Verona to be recognized as an NJ Sustainable Business by the state.

While Green Point’s known for its large cold-pressed juice selection, it also offers vegan desserts and snacks, acai bowls, superfood smoothies, high-quality organic coffees, dairy-free nut milk, and immune-booster shots. 

The juicery prides itself on being 100% organic, vegan, gluten-free, Kosher, and free of refined sugars. Green Point also uses local produce when available.

Green Point’s most popular products are the juice cleanses, acai bowls, avocado toasts, and lemon-ginger shots. If you are stopping by in the morning, try the Red Eye smoothie – it’s the perfect way to wake up in the morning with cold brew coffee blended right in. One of the healthy muffins pairs well with any of the juices.

Fans of kombucha will find a great selection of bottled kombucha alongside the juices but will be even luckier to realize they have kombucha on tap with rotating flavors. 

The Pandemic Effect

When the pandemic hit, Onishkevich said, “it definitely wasn’t easy to adapt and change for the new environment that quickly, but I have to say that it did make us stronger and more resilient.” 

Green Point Juicery offers online ordering and delivery service with a contactless option available to ensure everyone feels safe enjoying the products.
