He’s also made TV appearances in programs on UNIVISION, TELEMUNDO and on three popular Dominican TV shows. KROOK ROCK is a very talented songwriter and producer with an uncanny style and a persuasive energy. KROOK’S drive is the key to his undeniable rise to the top of the charts.

Why did you started Southside Smoothie?

To bring more healthy food alternatives to the hood.

What are the health benefits?

we are making every smoothie with organic sea moss you will be getting no less than 90% of the nutrients and vitamins that are found in the human body. Each smoothie will help regenerate cells, improve skin and hair health, lower inflammation, boost your immune system, improve your sex organs and much more.

What are your goals for the business?

My goals are to bring nutritional awareness to the community and cause a health wave that gets people in better shape inside and out. To maximize their potential to live productive lives without sicknesses that may impede their progress and efforts in life.

How did you get into a healthy lifestyle?

I have always been into knowledge of self, doing for self and learning anything that will benefit me in the pursuit of a happy and fulfilling life. Once I learned how much the food we eat affects how we perform and think I started to change how I eat and drink and the results have been great. At 47 years of age people still think I am in my 30’s. I feel great on most days and know that it’s a direct result of the dietary choices I’ve made.

Would you want to open more locations around the city?

Would definitely love to have as many locations as possible in as many neighborhoods as we can serve. We look to open in neighboring towns as well.

Are you hiring or looking for volunteers?

I am looking for one or two highly motivated and positive people willing to dedicate themselves to being of great service to our clients. We do need some volunteers for the grand opening on August 21st to help pass out flyers and samples.

How can we connect with you?
