May 4, 2018—Unleash LIFE, an Oakland Park company delivering raw and organic juices to South Florida residents, has won the 2018 Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce Award for Health and Wellness. Today’s awards ceremony was held at the Downtown Event Center at First Baptist Church.
“Small businesses are the backbone of Fort Lauderdale and our region,” says Chamber President and CEO Dan Lindblade. “If we didn’t have entrepreneurs risking everything to build that American dream, we wouldn’t have employees, and without employees, we wouldn’t have an economy.”
Unleash Life joins an elite group of small businesses recognized for their success in several other categories: Hospitality and Tourism (Florida Supercon), Nonprofit Organization (Broward 2-1-1), Professional Services (The Law Office of Stephanie Schneider), Retail Products and Services (Minute Man Press of Wilton Manors and Oriental Rug Care – a tie), and Technology (LAN Infotech). The winning companies range in size from a few employees to a maximum of 50 – Unleash Life has 12.
Members of the Chamber’s Small Business Committee, chaired by Golden Johansson, executive director of operations for the Seminole Tribe of Florida, chose finalists from a pool of nominees. An independent group of judges selected the winners based on growth, work environment, contributions to the community, and involvement with the Chamber.
Unleash LIFE, founded in 2015 by Tayana “T” Carper and Kelly Magrane, makes weekly deliveries of raw, organic and cold-pressed juices to homes and apartments in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. The company ships to the rest of Florida and 27 other states, too.
Each of the six juice bundles – comprised of several 4-ounce shots and 13-ounce bottles – responds to a specific area of concern: pain management, digestion problems, anti-aging and skin concerns, toxin removal, weight loss, and the need for increased energy and stamina. Ingredients range from turmeric and beets to bitter melon and moringa. Just as committed to the planet’s health, Unleash Life sanitizes and reuses all bottles to keep them from entering the waste stream.
“It’s the absolutely easiest way to stay healthy and have juicing be a part of your life,” says Carper in the Chamber’s Facebook video saluting Unleash LIFE. “We had health issues. Our clients had health issues. [Starting our company] was all about helping people.”
Unleash LIFE is growing via word-of-mouth thanks to its wide-ranging clientele. “Unleash LIFE juices are an invigorating and energizing way to help achieve better health,” says Ashwin Mehta, M.D., Medical Director of Integrative Medicine at Memorial Healthcare System. “The juice recipes are nutritious and tasty.”
Says Pompano Beach resident Danielle Sayers: “I’m hooked! My skin is glowing!”
