Juice shop to create food service jobs in Atlanta

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

A new company is opening several new juice jobs and creating food service jobs in Atlanta in the process.

According to a recent article, Spencer Forst Enterprises recently acquired a stake in Dtox Juice, LLC.

The partners of Spencer Forst Enterprises, Karen Spencer Welanetz and Jenny Forst, both former Vice Presidents of General Growth Properties, Inc., bring retail real estate, retail marketing and brand development experience to the new partnership.

The group plans to expand Dtox Juice to include 10 new retail locations in Atlanta within the next 24 months.

Founder Shannon Sliger opened the first Dtox Juice retail location in late 2012 and the second in 2014 in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. “Our biggest operational hurdle is keeping the stores filled. We sell it as fast as we make it,” said Sliger.

“We will never let juice sit in a plastic bottle in the refrigerator for five days. We will always make sure our 100% organic green juice, which is loaded with micronutrients, is pressed and in our customers’ hands within 24 hours which optimizes the health benefits,” said Spencer Welanetz. “Our brand vision is to continuously keep things fresh,” adds Forst.

In addition to raw organic juice and smoothies, Dtox Juice offers detoxifying cleanse packages, alkaline salads and soups, teas, and elixirs.

Atlanta dental jobs get a boost

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

With the opening of a new practice, Atlanta dental jobs are increasing.

A new Aspen Dental is opening near Macon.

It will be located at at 5019 Riverside Drive and will provide dental services that range from dentures and preventive care to general dentistry and restoration.

The Macon practice, located in Bibb County, is one out of 12 Aspen Dental-branded locations in Georgia, a state where 87 out of 159 counties have dental health professional shortage areas as designated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Each new Aspen Dental-branded office supports local community growth by contributing more than $1.3 million in positive economic impact through job creation and capital investment. The local community benefits through investment in office construction, furniture and fixtures; jobs created and wages and benefits paid; taxes; and investment in marketing and advertising.

Aspen Dental will provide comprehensive exams, hygiene services, treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, extractions, fillings, oral surgery, whitening, and crown and bridge work. The office features digital radiography and offers advanced screening for oral cancer.

Following the initial exam and X-rays, each patient receives a customized treatment plan designed by the dentist with long-term oral and overall health in mind.

Aspen Dental offers special promotions, senior discounts, and free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. The practice works with all insurance providers and handles the paperwork.

Aspen Dental has its own on-site denture laboratory, which helps facilitate quick turnaround for denture repairs, relines or adjustments.
