The Inspiring Story of Our Healthy Food & Juice Bar Franchise
Most of us can remember being told to eat our vegetables when we were younger. Co-founder Kat Eckles certainly does! Her parents urged her to eat them every day, yet, like most kids, she wasn’t a big fan (of the vegetables, not her mom and dad!) That proved to be a phase, as she grew up to not only eat and love them but also grow them at home.
Today, she knows all too well how integral they are to a well-balanced diet, so when she started her own family, the tables turned and she was now the one telling her kids to eat their vegetables. Yet she realized there was an easier way to enjoy the benefits of vegetables – juicing! With the right blend of vegetables and a little bit of banana for sweetness, gone were the days of pushing her children to eat their veggies, because her family was loving the fresh juices and smoothies she was making.
Kat’s entrepreneurial-minded husband, Landon, loved them, too, and quickly realized the potential to bring clean and organic juices to communities throughout the country. They opened their first juice bar franchise location in Huntersville, NC, in June 2015, and today they have 100+ locations** throughout 32 states – and they are one of the fastest-growing franchises on the market!
At Clean Juice, we love to serve others and help them live a life that is “healthy in body and strong in spirit” (3 John 1-2). We believe that all our gifts come from above, and this inspires us to take our journey seriously. Being a small part of communities is a blessing for us, and we want to provide people in these communities with the best in organic juices, smoothies, and food. The Clean Juice team is a family, and we believe in the power of friendship and teamwork, which is why we have a prayer jar in each store and our packaging includes our mission statement, which is one of our favorite bible verses:
Dear Friend — I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy
in body as you are strong in spirit.
[3 John 1:2 ]
