With the comings and goings of busy lifestyles, healthy eating can pose a challenge to everyone.
New Roswell residents, Monika and Patrick Scott hope their business venture, Sublime Tree, which officially opened on Tuesday, will provide a solution.
Merriam Webster defines sublime as “very beautiful or good, causing strong feelings of admiration or wonder,” which is exactly what the Scott’s are hoping their offerings will achieve.
Previously residing in Buford, Monika and Patrick are no strangers to Roswell and busy lifestyles.
“Our best friends lived in Roswell, so we knew the area. We love Roswell,” Monika said.
Finding the ideal location solidified their decision to move here.
Monika is a business lawyer, with her own firm located off of Holcomb Bridge Road.
Patrick previously worked in operations management and manufacturing, he now works to run Sublime Tree full-time.
The business motto of “let’s get back to the earth,” revolves around the concept of incorporating more plant-based food into peoples’ lives.
“So many people have a challenge with access to healthy food. We wanted to be out there and give people an easy solution to eating healthy,” Scott said.
The ideal goal is “helping [people] stay healthy and feed their families.”
Monika and Patrick factored in providing Sublime Tree’s offerings on-the-go by implementing a drive-thru window, accessible off of Crabapple Road.
Sublime Tree’s menu will include juices, smoothies, superfood yogurt parfait, avocado toast, tempeh, chickpea and sprout sandwiches and kale salads.
There are four green juices and up to six fruit and veggie juices anticipated for the menu.
“We are doing cold press juice, which is the best type and industry standard for healthiest,” Scott said.
“By not spinning the juice, it stays fresh a little longer.”
‘Sublime Green’ is the company’s signature juice; “spinach, kale, celery, cucumber and apples for sweetness.”
‘Upbeet’ is beet, carrot, apple, lemon and ginger.
According to Patrick Scott, Sublime Tree relies on fruits to provide natural sweetness, juices do not contain sugar or artificial sweetener, preservatives or additives.
The raw state of the juices shortens freshness and shelf-life, so juices are prepared in smaller batches and more frequently.
The menu will also include ‘kid-friendly juices,’ with more fruit bases and raw juices.
In Scott’s opinion, “everything changes when you eat healthier,” attributing increased motivation and happier mood to this lifestyle change.
She describes eating healthy and getting back to the earth as “awe-inspiring.”
“[We want to] serve things that pack a nutritional punch including chia seeds, flax seeds and coconut oil.”
Her journey to healthier eating began in 2014 when their son was born.
“I had a lot of weight to lose, but we [Monika and Patrick] also became very self-aware with our food and the dangers of processed food,” she recalled.
The Scott’s embarked on healthier eating habits and thus, Sublime Tree was born.
Recipes were created by Monika and Patrick, with feedback from friends who sampled their test recipes.
Monika recalls the reaction of “I didn’t expect this to taste so good.”
“I love to be able to surprise people,” she said.
For inquiring minds that wish to know what is in their juice and its health benefits, Sublime Tree has the solution.
“We are setting up an interactive educational software program in the lobby of our store. People can use it to see the health benefits of our ingredients. We want people to become empowered in their food choices by knowing about why certain foods are healthy,” Scott said.
Patrons have the opportunity to try Sublime Tree for themselves as it is officially open for business.
Scott, who hopes Sublime Tree being visible from Crossville will contribute to attracting customers.
The Scott’s held a launch event on Sept. 24, opening doors for invited friends and family, then officially opened for business on Tuesday.
Sublime Tree is at 10971 Crabapple Road, Suite 2100 in Roswell.
On Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, Sublime Tree is running a promotion for "Free Smoothies for a Year."
"Be one of the first ten customers this Thursday, Friday and Saturday and get one 16 oz smoothie a week for a year."
It is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
