Juicy News: Harrisburg residents to open juice bar in Midtown, promote healthy eating

Owners Bryanna and Anthony Graham of Midtown Juice Lab

After Harrisburg residents Bryanna and Anthony Graham got COVID at the beginning of the pandemic, they started looking for natural ways to stay healthy.

Around that time, they were introduced to juicing and started learning about its health benefits.

“If you drink a juice that’s loaded with fruits and vegetables, you can feel lit working in your body,” Anthony said. “It’ll make you feel good throughout the day. You can feel the difference.”

The Grahams hope to share their love for healthy, natural eating at their new Harrisburg shop, Midtown Juice Lab, which they plan to open on June 25.

The juice bar, located at 1426 N. 3rd St. Suite 130, will set up shop where the former House of Vegans restaurant operated until closing last year.

Bryanna and Anthony previously partnered with John Roman to open Fresh Pressed HBG, a juice bar in downtown Harrisburg. However, the couple wanted to venture out and start their own business.

Midtown Juice Lab will offer a variety of juices, smoothies and acai bowls made with fruits and vegetables. They will also carry a small selection of wraps and avocado toast.

“We really need more healthy options in Harrisburg,” Bryanna said.

According to Anthony, all of the juices can be used as detoxes, and each targets a different area or condition within the body. Some may help with diabetes, high blood pressure or asthma, among other issues. Anthony creates most of the concoctions himself.

For those who might be hesitant to try a juice or smoothie packed with greens, the couple will assure you—you won’t taste the veggies in the drink. It’s actually a great way for people who don’t enjoy vegetables to sneak them into their diet, they explained.

Additionally, all of Midtown Juice Lab’s products will use natural sweeteners, so no sugar, but still sweet, Anthony said.

The Midtown shop will feature limited indoor and outdoor seating. The Grahams hope it’ll be a welcoming community atmosphere.

“We are excited,” Anthony said. “It’s going to be good to do good for the area.”
