Belmonte Raw has closed the doors to its Leslieville shop as well as its location in Toronto's Financial District.
One of the original juicing businesses in the city, Belmonte Raw not only specialized in nutritious whole foods and juices, but also in in its cleansing and detox kits.
Founder Carol Belmonte opened her business by delivering salads and juices out of her home in 2009 and in 2011 she opened her first location in Leslieville. She posted a note to the window of the Leslieville location that reads:
"With a bike, a dream and a passion for raw food, I started this business in 2008. I never imagined that the company would grow to deliver across the GTA, have two locations with a full-time team and an amazingly loyal customer base."
"Thank you to each and every person who supported me along the way,' the note continues. "I could not have done this without you."
