Skinny Limits was founded in the kitchen of the founders, in Austin :) They had tried their first juice cleanse and loved it. They wanted to do one every couple of weeks, but the mainstream juice companies were too expensive. They started buying their own bottles and a good juicer knowing that even it would be more expensive than a cleanse up front, it would save them money in the long run. They soon discovered that making their own cleanses was extremely difficult and took up their entire day to make and left their kitchen in a complete mess. They powered through it and soon after their neighbors and friends started asking them to make cleanses for them too.
This started the events that turned a two person shop in austin into a quickly growing 25 person team that serves nationwide. While juice cleanses are our main priority, we focus on raw foods in general. Everything in our shop is raw, no exceptions! We have raw lunches, raw (healthy) smoothies, raw juices, raw deserts, and of course raw cleanses. We're so diligent about keeping our shop uncontaminated, that if any employee has meat in their lunch, we ask them to keep it in a cooler outside of the shop.
The shop also helps us keep our costs down. Most cleanse companies use a warehouse to produce their cleanses, which has a high upkeep. We produce our cleanses right out of our shops outside of store hours, which helps us keep our costs as low as possible. In most cases, it's less expensive to get our cleanse shipped to your front door than it is to pick it up at a local shop. All our shipments are made the day before you receive them. They're cooled and packaged immediately after they're made.
Lastly, our cleanse is 100% raw. Most mainstream juice cleanse companies claim to be raw, but they're not. They get bought out by, or are associated with, bigger companies which force them to distribute their product in other stores. The problem is, raw juice only lasts for about 5 days, so it's not feasible. This means they have to use a process called HP Pasteurization. Instead of heat, this uses high pressure to pasteurize. This more than quadruples it's shelf life, but kills everything in the juice. We use no pasteurization and no processing. Our juice is alive.
