New juice business - ONLINE ONLY

The future home of Be Good Juice Company in downtown Dickson.

When Dickson residents Haleigh Sadler and Tia Waller met while working at Bloom Day Spa in downtown Dickson, they quickly bonded over their passion for nutrition.

Now, a year and a half later, they are planning to open their own store in the city called Be Good Juice Company.

Sadler, 24, became interested in the opportunity after working with her dad, Steve Sadler, who owns Bloom Day Spa. Haleigh has worked as an aesthetician and a manager.

“Throughout my aesthetics career, I was really inspired by the internal effects of what we eat on our bodies and our skin,” she said. “The nutrition side of health is very important.”

When Sadler and Waller, 22, realized Dickson didn’t have many options for juices and smoothies, they began considering opening their own store.

“We’ll definitely be focused around bringing a very nutritious meal and beverage establishment to Dickson,” Sadler said.

The pair acquired a storefront at 100 West College St. and began making preparations for their shop, which is slated to open in the spring of 2020.

The store will initially offer only juices but eventually will sell yogurts and other grab-and-go snacks, Sadler said. The items will target consumers looking for plant-based nutrition, she said. There will also be vegan-friendly options.

Sadler and Waller said they also plan to focus on using locally-grown produce for their products.

“We’ve already talked with a couple of them. We’re excited to work with some of the family farms in Dickson,” Sadler said.

While both have a passion for nutrition, Sadler and Waller have another common interest that will also be a goal for the store.

“We always are conscious about the earth as well, so we thought this would be a good way to do both,” Waller said.

The women plan to use biodegradable materials and supplies in their store along with tables built from reclaimed wood, Sadler said.

“The restaurant industry is very wasteful traditionally so we plan to not only be good at doing conscious practices but also spread that knowledge by our work,” she said.
