Robeks Opens Newest Location At Busy Plaza
The destination for creatively crafted fresh smoothies, juices, and acai bowls, Robeks newest Connecticut location, just off Interstate 84 at Exit 10 in Newtown, held an activity-filled grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting on Saturday, June 19. The new Robeks store, at 75 Church Hill Road, is owned and operated by Patrik Kovac and Mark Henriques.
With First Selectman Dan Rosenthal offering welcoming remarks and holding the ceremonial ribbon with Newtown Chamber of Commerce President Judith Miller, Kovac stood beside his business partner and did the honors officially opening the franchise.
“We are extremely excited to be opening our fourth location in the Connecticut region. Newtown is a small but growing community, and we are thrilled to be part of it,” said Kovac in an advance. “Being able to put a smile on customers’ faces with our delicious and healthy products and welcoming atmosphere is truly what this is all about.”
Henriques and Kovac also own and operate Robeks locations in Danbury, Shelton, and on the Sacred Heart University campus in Fairfield.
