The Well Juicery
Maisie Bissell | Tuesday Feb. 1st, 2022
Are you looking for a healthy change in your life? The Well Juicery (4575 Valley Commons Drive, Suite 101) is a great resource to start that change! Owner Sierra Brask has always been passionate about healthy living; she started this juice bar in 2021 to help provide just that for the Bozeman community. The goal is to offer fresh, locally grown products that help nourish the body on a cellular level. The Well Juicery menu includes smoothies, juice, salad, toast, and soup (all amazing things, if you ask me). The menu generally stays the same year round, but there are seasonal specials, so keep an eye out. One of the specials coming up is a Valentine’s Day drink that will be on the menu throughout all of February.
Maisie Bissell: How was The Well Juicery conceptualized?
Sierra Brask: My concept for The Well Juicery started through my own personal health journey. In my twenties, I ended up riddled with autoimmune disease, and I was not getting answers with conventional medicine. This led me to turn to food to heal. Juices and raw foods played a vital role in my healing process. It was a full-time job—juicing multiple juices each day, and chopping up loads of vegetables for every meal. I would daydream about how amazing it would be if I could just buy it made to my quality standards. In the midst of my healing, it was almost impossible to find a restaurant I could eat at that didn’t set me back. With this, The Well Juicery was born. I saw chronic illness becoming more prevalent and I wanted to create a safe place to dine for those on a healing journey, as well as [offer] a healthy, quick, and delicious option for everyone in the community to enjoy.
MB: What do you want people to experience when they walk through your doors?
SB: We want customers to experience individualized service. We really are here to help support you in achieving your health goals, small or large. We want you to walk through our doors and feel the high vibration of organic, fresh goodness. We want you to come in and find a moment of peace in your busy day, while feeling great about what you are putting into your body.
MB: What makes The Well Juicery unique in the Bozeman food scene?
SB: The Well Juicery is one hundred percent organic. Our juices, food, and cleaning products are all chemical-free. We really take pride in sourcing the highest quality ingredients, and creating a non-toxic space in which to enjoy them. We are a “fast food” option that you can feel good about fueling your body with. All of our juices are cold pressed to ensure that the maximum amount of nutrients stay intact—this makes the juice much more nutrient-dense. We keep most of our juice recipes high in vegetables in comparison to fruit to create more of a medicinal product. You are getting three to five pounds of produce in each bottle of juice. Our space is very aesthetically pleasing, and has a calming, organic feel, being surrounded by plants and natural light. The Well Juicery is one-of-a-kind, and there really is not a comparable place in Bozeman.
MB: What do your regulars keep coming back for?
SB: Our regulars come back for the friendly service, the high quality ingredients and the beautifying space. Everything on our menu makes you feel good, and people get hooked on that feeling. A lot of regulars have ditched caffeine and now drink a-juice-a-day to get the same energized feeling. Our salad is a fan favorite, and people have not stopped raving about our Flu Shot. Supporting a strong immune system daily is a high priority for many right now, and our Flu Shot is a great tool for that.
MB: What is your personal favorite menu item?
SB: It really depends on the day. I love it all. On the colder days, I usually go for a Golden Chai or Chaga Latte, and any of our homemade soups. Today, the Chickpea Salad and a Be Bold juice hit the spot. The herb salad dressing is amazing! I love to start my day with a celery juice, a Date Shake and Overnight Oats. You really can’t go wrong, it’s all so good!
MB: What do you personally enjoy most about being part of the Bozeman community?
SB: I was born and raised here in Bozeman. Seeing this community change and expand over the last thirty years has been wild. Of course, I love our beautiful surroundings; that’s why we all live here, right? But something special I have discovered in the process of opening The Well Juicery is the support for small businesses this community takes pride in. I feel that people genuinely care and want each other to succeed. That is something I have found to be very special about this community.
MB: Do you have anything coming up that the readers should know about?
SB: We have some Valentine’s Day specials coming up that we will run all of February. They are going to satisfy the sweet tooth craving without the guilt. We also make our own Almond Butter Cups (think Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but without the junk) that make a great gift for the chocolate-lover in your life. Follow us on Instagram (thewelljuicery) and Facebook to stay up-to-date on the holiday and daily specials we are offering. We run discount specials and small batch specialty items often.
MB: How often do you change your menu?
SB: Our soups change daily, but we are planning on our base menu staying pretty consistent. We will be adding new food and drink items seasonally, when certain produce is available. We are always experimenting in the kitchen to put a fun twist on things.
MB: Do you have any goals for expanding The Well Juicery?
SB: Right now, we are focusing on creating a strong storefront and introducing the community to the world of cold-pressed juice. We have some exciting things coming in the pipeline, so expansion is definitely being discussed. I don’t want to give away too many secrets, but expect to see a lot more of us around the Valley in the future.
MB: When did The Well Juicery open?
SB: November 6th, 2021 was our first day open to the public.
MB: What qualities do you look for when hiring new employees?
SB: The qualities we look for most are a fun personality, strong work ethic, a self-starter, a passion for health/wellness/nature, and a willingness to learn new things. We love high-vibe, positive people in our environment. Energy is contagious—you feel better around happy people, and your food tastes better when made by happy people who care about what they are doing. We strive to keep our space [filled with] positive energy at all times.
As you can see, Sierra Brask is a very proud and hard-working business owner. She absolutely loves it here in Bozeman, and she loves her business even more! The Well Juicery is full of healthy, immune-boosting juice and food. I don’t know about other people, but I love to be outdoors, and in order to stay healthy while being active, The Well Juicery sounds like an amazing place to frequent. Sierra created this business out of passion for helping others live a healthy life. All of the employees at The Well Juicery are full of positive energy and make sure to serve customers with a smile. After learning so much about how Sierra makes her products, I am definitely going to make a trip down to The Well Juicery and fuel up my system with organic goods. You should, too!
