Kick-off your long holiday weekend back with a FREE hot or iced coffee from Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar on Monday, November 29, 8:30 am – 10:30 am in Wrightsville Beach!
Adapt Kitchen & Juice Bar is owned by husband and wife team Chris and Elie Curry. We caught up with both of them to see what makes this beloved shop stand out from other offerings around and learn more about their passion and continued efforts for keeping the beautiful coastal town of Wrightsville Beach clean with the idea of sustainability in mind.
What is your and Elie’s background?
Chris Curry: Elie and I, bring unique coastal perspectives to our health food and beverage concept design. Being an athlete and native of Wrightsville Beach, I possesses unique knowledge of this locale both in and out of the water. Elie, a native of Ocean City, Maryland, delivers a creative vision that combines modern and rustic home artistry. We were both raised in surfing families which gave us a deep sense of respect for our own health and nutrition as well as the ocean and land that surround us. I graduated from UNCW’s Cameron School of Business with a concentration in Marketing and Elie graduated from Salisbury University with a concentration in Fine Art & Photography.
What inspired you both to open Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar?
Chris Curry: We wanted to be the first sustainable brand in Wrightsville Beach and in the greater Wilmington locale focused on serving its guests with healthy food and beverage products and curated retail goods that support well-balanced lifestyles. Our vision was to focus on enhancing the coastal, southern North Carolina community in which they live while supporting a more thoughtful and sustainable culture.
What sets Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar apart from others?
Chris Curry: We implemented a waste diversion program the day we opened to be more thoughtful (sustainable) in our direct local environmental impact. We divert 400-750 lbs. of organic waste a week which enriches our soil and local farmer’s crops. We do not use single-use plastics (cups, lids, straws, bowls, bags, or retail bottled beverages) and only utilize biodegradable, compostable, and/or recyclable materials to significantly curb pollution in our local waterways and landfills. We can say with absolute certainty that the food and beverages we make will be served in products that help us drastically lower our waste footprint compared to other local and non-local businesses like ours.
Much of our food and beverage ingredients are organic, non-gmo, fair-trade, and/or sourced responsibly (locally when available). We aim to deliver a convenient high-quality product as well as keeping as much money in the local economy as possible.
Item(s) that we would recommend to new guests of Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar: Nutty Acai Bowl, Hawaiian Poke Bowl, Plant-based Cauli Bowl, So Fresh n’ So Green Adaptogenic Superfood Smoothie, Vanilla Oat Milk Latte (VOML), and Matcha Latte.
What is our favorite item we sell: Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar branded 16oz Cold pressed juice bottles – all the flavor profiles!
Must do while in Wrightsville Beach: get breakfast or lunch at Adapt Kitchen and Juice Bar and head straight to the beach to enjoy it all! Nothing beats enjoying a healthy food and beverage experience in one of the most beautiful places in NC.
