Nekter Juice Bar is a leading national Juice Bar headquartered in Orange County CA.  We have 90+ stores nationally at the moment and are growing rapidly as we have plans to scale to 400+ within 4 years.



The Hermosa Beach Nekter Juice Bar is in a beautiful location and busy shopping center in Hermosa Beach. The store is only 1,000 square but in a very prominent end-cap location in the shopping center.  The store will be opening in mid-October 2017 and is therefore very near construction completion.  I have spoken with the shopping center management company about designing a patio and the shopping center was very excited about the thought as they embrace our business and they like the idea of making their property more attractive with a beautiful patio. I thought it would be great to have some type of water feature on the patio as well.  I am looking for a student or alumni that can design such so I can submit it to the landlord for approval.  And then have those plans to give to a contractor to complete the project.  We will need to get Nekter Juice Bar corporate approval as well as mine and the approval from the shopping center as well.  The completed space will be rather sm
all in scale however rather large in terms of visibility as Hermosa Plaza is a very busy shopping center with lots of traffic and every visitor that visits Hermosa Plaza will see the patio as it is just adjacent to the main entrance.  This patio project will be visible from Pier Avenue as well which is the busiest street for people visiting Hermosa Beach.  And therefore I would like the patio to be very appealing and inviting to those driving by the store.  It has been discussed the patio will be enclosed to create privacy from the adjacent parking lot.


Qualifications: Any student or alum that can perform the listed job description. And someone that has very creative design ability to incorporate a local beach feel as well as perhaps a modern industrial type feel with woods and metals and natural type of materials as the build out of the store incorporates such (looking for congruity from the interior build).
