The Beach Pit BBQ location in Ocean Ranch may not be replaced with a Nekter Juice Bar, according to Beach Pit BBQ owner Tim DeCinces.
He said Shea Properties did not "accept assignment" of Beach Pit BBQ's lease to Nekter. DeCinces is friends with the owners of Nekter.
FOR THE RECORD:
[This clarifies the action Shea Properties took in regards to Nekter coming to Ocean Ranch.]
Update: However, Steve Schulze of Nekter said in an email Friday that Nekter is "definitely coming to Laguna Niguel." He says the business has been in negotiations with Shea to move forward on a deal that would bring the juice bar to Ocean Ranch.
