Who is this guy Marcus?

Marcus is the founder of both goodsugar and Juice Press, (a.k.a Just Plants). He started Juice Press in 2010 on East First Street in New York City. When he sold his interest in 2019 there were 85 stores in several states.

Antebi starting working on goodsugar four minutes after he was officially "out" of Juice Press. Then the Great Pandemic hit, and his plans of leasing the first good sugar location were delayed.

During the pandemic, Antebi focused on completing good sugar's branding, structure, messaging, planning, etc. Also during that time he completed a comprehensive book on "diet" and general well being called The goodsugar Diet.

In 2022, he signed the lease for our first goodsugar location and completed the build out in March 2023.
