Our Founder


Meet Rick L. Poole

Hi, I’m Rick Poole: founder and owner of Natural Foods + Juice Caboose. 25 years ago I opened my first juice bar and natural grocer location with a mission to add value to people’s lives through education, information, and offering the very best products in the universe. Now with two stores, we offer vitamins, herbs, organic juices, and plant-based smoothies free from added sugars or concentrates. They contain whole food cellular supplements for powerful healing and vitality.

In 1980, I lost my dad to lung cancer and in 1984, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I refused chemotherapy and radiation. This is why I became interested in alternative options to cancer treatment and began exploring integrative and complementary health approaches.

When I was diagnosed in 1984, one in 267 people developed cancer. Today, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women are diagnosed. Something is wrong with this picture! It is my belief that 90% of all chronic metabolic issues and illnesses are caused by poor eating choices, habits, and beliefs. It is my goal to make a difference in people’s lives by educating and providing resources on how to make better choices regarding diet, exercise, and lifestyle. I invite you to visit our juice bar and natural grocery stores and see why we are the place where healing and rejuvenation begin!
