Lawrence Lady Boss | ONDRIA NIEHOFF


Meet Ondria Niehoff, the owner of Sunflower Juice & Fitness. Sunflower Juice and Fitness is a juice and smoothie bar located in Baldwin City, that also hosts group fitness classes. They believe in Holistic Nutrition and that food is medicine. Their goal is to heal from the inside out giving your body what it is craving and needed. Everything is gluten free, dairy free, and no added sugar. "Everyone is healing from something... thyroid, weightloss, autoimmune diseases, gut health, etc ... we are here to help along that journey in a natural way."

What is your goal for the next year?

We don’t open till March, but my goal is to just help more people along their healing journey, to educate people and give them more options to take care of themselves. Help people feel like themselves again.

Who has influenced you the most?

100% my husband. I wouldn’t be where I am without him. He has been my solid rock through everything especially opening this business. When I feel like I’m failing or want to give up he is my motivation and such a postitive influence. He did all the repairs to our building, he pushes my dreams and doesn’t give me a choice not to finish.

What one piece of advice do you give to other business owners?

Don’t be afraid to be different. If you do everything the same as others what is making you stand out? Believe in yourself! You have so much to offer the world and people will love it 😍

When you are not working, what are you doing?

Crafting/home projects, I love to organize.. I love spending with just my husband and kids (family time) or binge watching “murder mystery and makeup” on YouTube if I’m alone.

What Lawrence hidden gem do you recommend everyone checks out?

Big Mill .. they have the BEST sweet potato fries hands down.

If you could change one thing about your business, what would you change?
