Last weekend community members came together with Brewster and Mahopac-Carmel Chambers of Commerce to celebrate the Grand Opening of Robeks in Carmel, NY. Robeks is the new local destination for creatively crafted fresh smoothies, juices, and bowls.
Festivities included a ribbon cutting, live music by Smokey O, face painting, a visit from the Carmel Fire Department, and fundraisers. A percentage of the day’s sales went to local non-profit Putnam Service Dogs which provides free trained service dogs for those with physical disabilities other than blindness.
“Putnam Service Dogs is an important organization and we’re happy to support their worthwhile efforts,” said owner Mike Jacobs. Robeks also held a raffle with a number of prizes. Raffle proceeds went to Carmel Fire Department, New York State Troopers, Putnam County Sheriff’s Dept., Putnam Service Dogs, and United for The Troops.
For more than 20 years, owner Mike Jacobs has run his own consulting business focusing on operations management for small and medium sized companies. The pandemic made him reevaluate his future. When friends introduced him to the Robeks experience, he knew this was the right business choice.
“The Robeks I visited had a great atmosphere and employees loved being there. The culture combined with serving healthy alternatives and strong sales during the pandemic made Robeks a great business idea,” said Mike Jacobs.
Jacobs chose his former hometown of Carmel Hamlet for this Robeks which is located at 1081 Stoneleigh Ave., near U.S. Route 6. *(Next to Taco Bell)
