Steve and Alexis Schulze, the husband and wife team behind Nékter, are aiming to “save the world” from sugary juice and coffee. Their menu, which started with cold-pressed juices and smoothies made with fruits and veggies has grown in the five years since Nékter was founded to include acai bowls, salads and snacks. Online ordering, an in-app rewards program and a line of bottled cleanse drinks are designed to make its products a part of its hardcore, health-minded customers’ daily lives.
