AZ Liquids, established in early 2021, is a fresh-pressed juice and coffee company with products for health-minded individuals. Fares Tarabichi drew on his Parisian culinary experience in establishing this company to bring freshly pressed produce to consumers, and AZ Liquids juices are now distributed in gourmet restaurants and stores across the Valley as well as online.
The Arizona company is focused on partnering with local farmers as well as other Arizona staple companies such as State Forty Eight and D’lite, among others.
“When the pandemic hit, the brick-and-mortar locations of my other businesses — The Crepe Club and The Bodhi — had to temporarily shut their doors. Then, I started to look for a business venture that I could sell to consumers, online, or to businesses,” Tarabichi explains. “I have always loved juicing — I regularly juice at home — so I thought a juice and coffee company would be fitting! I invested time and money into this business to develop a product that was high-quality and healthy for customers.”
Although Tarabichi says he has felt the economy’s continuing labor shortages, which has impacted the company’s ability to fulfill all orders, the company continues to grow.
“Rich Melman from Lettuce Entertain You told me to ‘put your juices in people’s mouths.’ That is why we offer our juices at so many different locations across the Valley — to put our name in front of a wide variety of people,” Tarabichi says.
