Some of the fan-favorite options include the refreshing Watermelon Fresh Sip, the luscious Mango Tango, the smoothly tropical Piña Colada and the Sweet and Spicy Cha Cha Chamoy®- a Sip Fresh Signature drink that is not to be missed. The wide array of menu options ensure that a guest will leave with a delicious drink that sparkles with personality.
The arrival of Sip Fresh to the La Jolla community is consistent with the company’s expressed intention of extending its reach across the United States, with an initial focus on states in the Western and Southwestern regions.
“The beverage category is exploding as guests look for unique offerings to satisfy their thirsty palettes,” explained Sharon Arthofer, CEO and Founder of Sip Fresh. “High quality, high traffic venues like Westfield University Town Center (UTC) are a perfect fit and key to our expansion plans over the next year. Guests will instantly be attracted to our fresh, new offering that takes high quality ingredients that they know and love and offers it to them in a fun and delightful way."
