Jessica Morrison is the Co-Owner and Co-Founder of Squish Juicery in Port Coquitlam.
Squish Juicery opened its doors in December of 2018, and quickly became a community favourite. Winners of the 2019 + 2020 Tri-Cities A List for Best Smoothie/Juice Bar in Port Coquitlam, Best New Business Under 1 Year (2019), Best Overall Service (2020), and a proud recipient of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Top to Watch Award. Squish Juicery is bringing a new outlook on health and wellness to the community.
Squish began as a part of Jessica’s 23+ year struggle with an eating disorder. She was introduced to cold-pressed juicing as a way to nourish her body on her road to recovery. Jessica has always shared that she is not a sit down and eat a salad kind of gal, but give her a delicious veggie packed juice and she is happy as a clam. And so began their mission to create quality cold-pressed juices that are delicious to drink and loaded with nutritional value.
As a true believer in kindness first, sharing her own struggles with an eating disorder and creating an inclusive and accepting environment, Jessica’s main goal is to make Squish Juicery a safe haven for everyone who walks through their doors, no matter where you are on your health journey.
