A popular health food chain has landed in West Chester. Juice Pod, founded in 2016 in Avalon, NJ, has multiple branches in Chester County. Both the Downingtown and West Chester locations are run by the Riccardo family, and it’s quite the full house, writes Bill Rettew for The Daily Local News.

Jeff and Janet Riccardo run their shops with their eight children and a grandmother. Their eldest, 23-year-old Romea is teaming up with her father at the West Chester location. Her youngest sister, who is 11 years old, also helps out.

“Being around my family every day is something not a lot of people get to do,” said Romea. 

Patrons can choose from 27 different smoothies and 15 cold-pressed juices. For something to munch on, the restaurant offers acai, pitaya, and chia pudding bowls along with paninis, salads, and wraps.  

“We always wanted to come to West Chester with a business — with the right opportunity for a great location,” said Jeff.
