Décolleté Juicery & Coffee shop opens

RANDOLPH — Fresh-pressed juice, organic coffee beans, acai bowls and warm breakfast sandwiches have found a new home in Randolph, bringing tropical island flavors native to the owners’ roots.

Décolleté Juicery & Coffee shop at 23 Memorial Parkway, Randolph, was created by husband and wife Nia and Ashley Lubin.

The couple both emigrated from different countries in the Caribbean at young ages. Nia came to America at 8 years old from Jamaica, and Ashley came in his early teens from Haiti.

While in their native countries, drinking fresh fruit juices and smoothies was a cultural norm. Ashley spent many summers with his grandmother in the countryside of Haiti, learning the benefits of natural remedies from fruits and other ingredients.

The knowledge stuck with him, and he is now creating a business using those same recipes.

As a young child, Nia hung out in the lush mango trees eating sweet fruit and bathing in the sun.

“It’s a way of life in Jamaica to drink pressed juice. As a kid, we ate fruit as an in-between snack meal. We never ate processed junk food,” Nia said.

The juice of choice for Nia was soursop, a popular green spiked fruit with many health benefits, including being high in vitamin C and antioxidants

Soursop juice is also the perfect drink if you’re experiencing digestive issues, Nia said.

Before opening the Randolph location, the couple owned a juice truck in 2018 and served smoothies, pressed juice and acai bowls in New Jersey.

The juice truck was a major success, and they wanted to bring health and wellness to Massachusetts.

“People in New jersey were so receptive of the health movement. Business was great,” Nia said.

Once settled in the Randolph area, the couple set their sights on finding a suitable location to bring their brick-and-mortar dreams of a juice café alive.

This dessert bowl at Décolleté Juicery & Coffee shop at 23 Memorial Parkway, Randolph, is called "Exotic Pitaya" and includes strawberries, almonds, kiwi, caramel, bananas, pitaya and chia seeds, all fresh, on Monday, March 7, 2022.

They stumbled on the vacant storefront accidentally, and Ashley knew this would be the perfect place to start a business. Once they put the deposit in, they opened two months later, in September 2021.

The couple credits their strength and resilience for their becoming successful in their immigrant experience.

“When you come into America from a different country, and you don’t speak the language, you have to build yourself from the ground up, and it’s challenging. Being a migrant created an intense work ethic and made me thankful for the business we ‘re building in America because we both come from countries with a lot of poverty,’ Ashley said.
