Strong Hearts on the Hill opened in December 2013.

It is owned by Joel Capolongo and Nick Ryan - owners of Strong Hearts Cafe, located less than a mile from Strong Hearts on the Hill. Joel and Nick decided to open this second location to fill an important space in the Marshall St environment - both physically and in terms of food options. The physical space was operated by Syrajuice for about 15 years, which always offered plenty of vegan options.

In the absence of Syrajuice, the options for vegan food and smoothies in the area were limited. Joel and Nick were confident they could fill the niche and serve more vegan food to Syracuse's wonderful residents and students.
