Juice Box gets re-approved to serve fruit juice in Old Town North, eyes expansion

Fresh fruit juice is back on the menu in Old Town North.

On Saturday, City Council unanimously reclassified Juice Box as a temporary trailer, after being incorrectly zoned as a food truck. The move follows a zoning violation after the company started operating in the parking lot of the Robinson Terminal North warehouse building at 500 North Union Street.

The business, which runs until April to November, is now licensed to serve fruit juice in the lot until April 2025.

Christina Barbari opened Juice Box this spring, and recently closed down for the season. Barbari is also working on opening a Juice Box kiosk next summer at the Crystal City Water Park at National Landing, and is scoping out brick and mortar locations throughout the D.C. Metro area.

“I am looking to expand in Arlington,” Barbari told ALXnow. “I’m finalizing the details for a second location at the waterpark at National Landing, and the fact that I’m looking at a second location within my first year in business in amazing.”

Barbari is a native of the Alexandria area of Fairfax County, and has a degree in catering and hospitality from The Art Institutes of Washington.

“There’s nothing like this in Old Town, and bringing fresh juice to cyclists and dog walkers and people in the community is really great,” Barbari said. “I met a lot of great people and I’m really excited about coming back next year.”
