Shawn and Sheree are the owners and operators of The Green Light, a delicious juice and smoothie Bar on Station Street in Downtown Hingham. Not only do they whip up nutritious and delicious concoctions to help keep us healthy, but they always serve them up a smile. If you're having a day, give this brother/sister duo a visit and they are sure to turn your day around with their positive vibes. And, good news they are expanding into the space next door in the coming months to offer more nutritious grab-and-go food items.
Hingham, meet Shawn and Sheree of the Green Light!
Shawn: Once I learned about the enormous impact of how our food choices affect our health, the environment and animals we share the planet with, I had to follow my heart and be a part of real solution. This is why we do what we do. Items we offer are both nutritious and delicious. All items we serve are 100% plant-based (vegan.)
What's it like to work as a brother/sister team?
We love working together. We both place high importance on quality, consistency, and customer service. We want each person that visits us to have a wonderful experience.
Do you have a favorite smoothie or juice?
Yes, along with the items on the menu, we have two smoothies that are not on the menu (but are very popular.)
Shawn Special:It’s like a healthy Reese's Peanut Butter cup. It has peanut protein powder, cocoa nibs, dates, unsweetened almond milk, and banana.
Sheree Special: It’s our signature Green Light juice blended with a bit of frozen banana and pineapple. It’s like a juice/smoothie hybrid.
What's your favorite thing about having a small business in-town?
We are so grateful for the relationships we have made with the amazing people that visit us each day! The local community is so good to us!
What's a challenge you have as local small business owners?
We pour our heart and soul into the business so the people we serve have the best experience possible. Everything is done with love and care. One challenge we’ve faced is finding the balance between work and family life - we are making progress though 🙂
What do you love most about Hingham?
The people we get to see and meet each day are kind and genuine! The support we have received from this community is tremendous - we are so thankful.
If you had a different career, what would it be?
There is no other career we could imagine being in. Each day, we get to help others thrive nutritionally, and have a positive impact on the animals and environment!
When your not at Green Light, what do you love to do?
Be with family.
What's one thing people may not know about each of you?
Shawn is a huge Bob Dylan fan and has seen over 50 Bob Dylan shows!
We will be expanding in February/March. We are thrilled to now have Chef Stephen Conti on the team. He plans on preparing nutritious, delicious, convenient, plant based and scratch made Grab & Go items. We are still working out the details. With that said, we plan on adding quinoa/brown rice bowls, salads, wraps, soups, overnight oats, oatmeal, fruit salad, chia pudding, and more! Many clients have been asking us to offer some healthy and quick options and we’re excited to be able to help. Stay tuned for more details!
