Juicing has taken Boston by storm, but while there is an increasing variety of raw, vegetarian, and vegan dining options, hunting for the right one can still prove challenging. On July 4, the newly released version of an iPhone and Android app called GreenHopping will put a directory of more than 30 green juice bar locations in the palm of your hand, building upon a platform that launched in New York earlier this year.
The app, founded by Catherine Cuello following a health scare and subsequent dietary changes, identifies by GPS where the nearest pressed juice is, as well as restaurants catering to vegan, raw, gluten-free, and vegetarian customers. Local featured establishments include Coco Beets, ETC Juicery, and Life Alive. By fall, Cuello expects to roll out an added functionality allowing users to not only scout out the nearest juice, but also place a delivery or take out order a la Seamless or GrubHub. Next time thirst strikes, swap that dehydrating iced coffee habit with a replenishing juice simply by tapping your phone screen.
