Charlotte, N.C. — Clean Juice, a USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise and quick-service restaurant, has added five new franchise partners in five new states: Connecticut, West Virginia, Kentucky, Montana and Washington. Clean Juice expects fourth quarter 2021 to be the brand’s best Q4 yet as it doubles down on expansion plans heading into 2022.
“We are proud and honored to welcome these new families into our Clean Juice family,” says Landon Eckles, CEO, Clean Juice. “Next to our more than 3 million guests, our franchise partners are the driving force behind the growth of Clean Juice across the nation.”
In Connecticut, new franchise partner Dr. Meag McCusker is a dermatologist interested in health, wellness and nutrition. Her Clean Juice location soft-opened in mid-December and is located at 1195 Hopmeadow St. in Simsbury.
In West Virginia, new franchise partner Dr. Randall Turner is an emergency medicine physician who wanted to offer his community a resource for ways to live a healthier lifestyle as a preventative measure to his patient’s overall health and wellness. Dr. Turner and his wife Cheryl opened their Clean Juice in early December located at 139 Conference Center Way in Charles Pointe, which is right next door to his wellness center.
Bryan Lindloff and his wife Alicia knew opened the first Clean Juice in Kentucky on December 12, located at 2878 Town Center Blvd. in Crestview Hills.
Jennifer and John Mikesh left North Carolina for the wanderlust of cross-country van life during COVID-19. Together with their young daughter, they fell in love with Montana. Their Clean Juice opened in early December at 605 West Peach St. in Bozeman.
Clean Juice also sold its first store in the state of Washington to Channing Plourd, who is expected to open in mid-2022. This is the 29th state Clean Juice has sold a franchise.
At the end of third quarter, Clean Juice inched closer to its 100th franchise partner and its 200th store in just 5 years of franchising. Currently, there are 118 open stores with 67 in development and an additional 13 corporate-owned store locations. In Q3 alone, Clean Juice celebrated nearly 12 new stores including its first stores in Minnesota and Oregon. In addition to these five new states, the company has received the green light to expand into two additional states — New York and Virginia — as it continues its march toward locations in all 50 states.
