Comcast Business is providing Intentions Juice and Smoothie Bar, a rapidly growing wellness-focused business in Washington, with Comcast Business Internet and Comcast Business Mobile. With a firm commitment to supporting community well-being, Intentions Juice and Smoothie Bar is leveraging the technology solutions to not only streamline its operations but also to deepen its impact within the greater Tacoma and Seattle communities.
Founded by Marquita Evans, Intentions Juice and Smoothie Bar was created with the goal to challenge customers to be intentional about what they feed their bodies. What began as a home endeavor to create a healthier lifestyle evolved into a business that provides a wide range of juices and smoothies to customers in the South Tacoma and Seattle areas. Now, the storefronts are more than a place for fresh, healthy drinks – they also serve as hubs for community activity and support. From hosting a kids’ chess club to offering merchandise from local artists, the juice bar business has become a beacon for local entrepreneurship and wellness. Building on its success in the South Tacoma and Seattle markets, Juice and Smoothie Bar is set to open a third location in downtown Tacoma in early 2024, further solidifying its commitment to promoting health and community engagement.
In today’s fast-paced world, efficient and reliable technology is essential for any growing business. For Intentions Juice and Smoothie Bar, the need to maintain strong communication with clients, manage online orders and participate in local festival events requires robust technology support. And, with aspirations to automate and streamline operations further, the juice bar’s technological needs are continuously evolving.
Comcast Business solutions emerged as the ideal solution for Intentions Juice and Smoothie Bar’s technology needs, particularly given the challenges that the business faced during and following the pandemic. The reliability of Comcast’s internet and mobile solutions have been crucial to help keep the juice bar business connected with its clientele and in supporting its growth ambitions.

Their solutions have empowered us to focus more on what we do best – serving our community and promoting wellness.”

This robust internet network is crucial for handling the business’ increasing online traffic, especially as it expands its digital footprint. Simultaneously, Comcast Business Mobile is optimizing the way the juice bar business connects with its team and customers. The mobile solution helps ensure seamless communication between the South Tacoma and Seattle locations, while also empowering staff with the ability to share social media updates on daily specials and other offerings in real-time, helping to create a dynamic and interactive online presence.
