Today we’d like to introduce you to Gerrard Sheppard. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Sunset Raw Juice Bar was created and started by the Sheppard family- Larry, Showanda, Shanaé, and Gerrard. After the passing of Larry’s sister, the Sheppard’s as a family began to clean out her house. While cleaning out the basement, there were a stack of books, dusty and appeared to not have been touched for a while. The pile of dusty books went into the “discard” box, with no intentions of ever reading them. Box after box was removed from the home until this tiny box was left. The Sheppard’s opened the box, on top was a book about juicing, this was the start of a new lifestyle.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
For the most part, it has been a smooth road, however if you ask any business owner, creating a start-up business comes with late nights and early mornings. Having a passion for the lifestyle, we want to always create the best product for our customers, which causes us to think 24-7 non-stop!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
