Well folks it’s not cookies now coming to McIntosh Plaza but 100% raw cold press juice! It was reported almost a year ago that Great American Cookie Company had its sights set and confirmed a lease at Carrollton’s McIntosh Plaza. Also known as Landon’s Cookie Bar throughout the waiting period, the business never came to fruition. However, now Plant Wasted with a location at Adamson Square in downtown Carrollton will be opening later this year/fall at McIntosh Plaza.
Plant Wasted is owned and operated by Brandy Ward, alongside her husband Jonathon Ward. Bringing something healthy to her hometown was her dream when they opened the location in downtown Carrollton in 2020, right in the middle of the pandemic.
All of the juice is made from finely chopped fruits and vegetables, then put into a press that extracts the juice. There are no added sugars, just raw, fresh-pressed fruits and veggies.
Many people said they have experienced internal healing and weight loss and benefited in other ways from juicing. For example, Brandy’s husband suffers from severe acid reflux and inflammation. Whenever he experiences a flare up, he will drink “Mama’s Favorite” which is a juice made only from celery. He will also drink shots of raw turmeric, and ginger which helps tremendously with his inflammation.
Plant Wasted is more than juice; they offer fresh smoothies, shots, and wellness bowls. There is a customizable smoothie, aptly named Drive Me Crazy, that allows customers to choose their favorite ingredients.
According to Plant Wasted’s Facebook page, this will be a relocation from Adamson Square to McIntosh Plaza. Special thanks to Lime Biscuit for the photo! You’ll also enjoy seeing the signage by them once it’s up!
Keep watching The City Menus as we will have more details on the new juice shop soon!
