Metro Detroit cold-pressed juice empire Drought is once again in expansion mode with a new location in Royal Oak and an Ann Arbor outpost on the way, according to a release.
The organic juice purveyor known for its retail and mail-order cleanses quietly opened the doors at its fifth Detroit-area location this past weekend on the border of Royal Oak and Birmingham near 14 Mile. In line with its other stores, the Royal Oak location sells raw juices in hefty glass bottles.
The company founded by sisters Caitlin, Jessie, Jenny, and Julie James, are also plotting their first venture beyond the metro area to Ann Arbor. That sixth storefront is expected to debut in July at 204 E. Washington St. near the University of Michigan campus.
As previously reported, Drought is also aiming to increase its production capacity in a big way. The James sisters are in the process of moving their juice operation from a 3,500-square-foot kitchen in Ferndale to a 15,000-square-foot building in Berkley in the near future.
Drought Royal Oak is located at 32823 Woodward Ave.; open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
