Organic juice bars are spreading around the city unchecked like a plague, seizing that title from the frozen yogurt industry. The eastern border of SoHo will soon add another.

Brooklyn-based juicery Tiny Empire is getting larger, expanding to 234 Lafayette Street (corner of Spring). It’s already carved out a chunk of the storefront previously occupied by the seasonal Ricky’s spinoff, “Urgent Beauty Care.” Teaser signage was added to the windows weeks ago.

Months of renovations culminate next week, though, as Tiny Empire plans to open on August 10.

The three-year-old Tiny Empire focuses on organic juices, smoothies, and “cleanses” at wallet-busting price points. It also offers fancy food options like Acai Bowls, yogurt parfaits, and kale salads. Executive Chef Melissa Love – fashion stylist turned raw food chef – is on board in the kitchen.

Artist and race car driver Richard Phillips will paint a new mural for the Tiny Empire outpost. Naturally; since you’re not anyone with a business until you have some street art to sell your brand.

Meanwhile, the corner retail space at the same address is currently leasing via landlord JTRE.

Given this recent turn of events, it would appear that the sisterly Kardashian endeavor with Khloe and Kourtney to lease 6,000 square-feet of space at 63 Spring is not happening.
