Meet August’s eXtraordinary person: Darris Mcdowell

Local News, On Demand, What We're Talking About

Darris Mcdowell

Owner, The Squeeze Juice Bar


Originally from the NYC-area, Mcdowell moved to Cortland and started his business in 2017.

He hosted Cortland’s first ever “Black-owned Business Appreciation Day” on August 8, then used the proceeds to buy backpacks and other school supplies for a free give away at The Squeeze on September 1.

Mcdowell also provided a free smoothie event for the community earlier this summer, helped along by donations made from friends who traveled hundreds of miles to support him.

During the interview, Darris thanked all who have helped him succeed, like other business owners, city officials and the local Chamber of Commerce.
