  • Description


    Coming from the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka, I am a young individual looking for help in newly opened juice bar in Central Colombo. Our philosophy is based on being able to make everyday living an affordable and comfortable experience for our customers whilst catering a quality product to them.

    I have been around Asia and with this project I have aimed to replicate the best juice bars I have come across while travelling around, it will strive to be a young, vibrant and instagram-friendly brand. The theme of the juice bar will be coconuts which is available in plentiful around Sri Lanka, but not many people are aware of this. The experience we create will strongly focus on increasing awareness on the many benefits that coconuts can offer to improve and enhance our daily lives.

    The interiors of the juice bar has been done entirely with the use of recycled material as I strongly believe in giving back and contribution to the community we all live in. We will serve fresh produce (fruits) on a daily sourced from local farmers in our attempt to grow with the neighbouring community. We are still very young and hence in the infancy stages of this business operation.

    Some things to note:
    We prefer having workawayers to stay for at least two months, as training itself takes a week.
    We can use a little extra help with other things than reception work and general upkeep, so if you have a talent to bring in we can discuss a shorter stay.
    We are looking for highly motivated and driven individuals who are self starters and work on getting things done
    Attractive Weekly stipends will be worked out
    Meals will be provided
