Our Story

 

Katie and Saket are the husband-and-wife team behind Southern Squeezed. They met in 2009, during their junior year in college, when Katie was attending the University of South Carolina and Saket Wake Forest University. Shortly after graduating, they moved to San Francisco, where they developed a passion for cold pressed juicing.

In 2013, after returning to Charleston for their wedding, Katie and Saket traveled to France, Dubai, Thailand, and Korea, where they saw cold pressed juice bars embracing local flavors in the far corners of the world. Katie, born and bred in South Carolina, wanted to promote a healthier lifestyle and bring cold pressed juice closer to home.

They are excited to be back on the East Coast sharing their enthusiasm for juicing with the city of Columbia.
