AUSTINVILLE ADDS A BLEND OF SOUP, JUICE PEDDLERS
Soup Peddler David Ansel and Daily Juice owner/co-founder Matt Shook have announced plans to open Juicebox & Soup Peddler — a walk-up building at 2801 S. Lamar Blvd. The quick-service spot will become the latest addition to the Austinville 78704 complex that will include Amy’s Ice Creams, Phil’s Ice House, Gaga, Thundercloud Subs and Papalote. Juicebox & Soup Peddler is expected to open in November and will serve eight smoothies and juices, along with about eight soups. Ansel said that everything on the menu will be less than $6. Located at the corner of South Lamar Boulevard and Manchaca Road, the building will be designed by Michael Hsu, with construction additions expected to begin in the next couple of weeks. Ansel says he expects the new business — which will offer take-away service as well as a seated area — to be open seven days a week, with hours to be determined.
