Charlotte, N.C. — Clean Juice, the first and only national USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise and quick-service restaurant, has demonstrated another quarter of impressive guest count and sales growth.
“Despite these record-breaking successes and forward-moving gains, we still feel as if we are just getting started, and we’re certainly not stopping,” says Landon Eckles, CEO, Clean Juice. “As cold weather and early sunsets encroach, and we spend more time celebrating the holiday season with our family and friends — and that typically revolves around food — Clean Juice remains focused on making Q4 2021 our best 4th quarter yet.”
Reporting YTD numbers, including Q3, the organic fast-casual brand posted a 27% same-store (SS) guest count with same-store average ticket price eclipsing $18. In Q3 alone, same-store sales (SSS) increased 17% compared to Q3/2020 with a 21% guest count increase. Clean Juice attributes these successes to the cornerstone values of its brand alongside laser focus on excellent customer service and the rollout of several new menu items from center-of-the-plate items to seasonal favorites, which is lauded by the brand’s loyal guests.
Growth for Clean Juice is not only reported in sales or ticket prices but through location expansions and steady growth of new franchise partners joining the Clean Juice family. At the end of Q3, Clean Juice inched closer to its 100th franchise partner and its 200th store. Currently, there are 116 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, Clean Juice was registered and approved to expand into two additional states including New York and Virginia that will continue to fuel growth.
Clean Juice began its pivot away from its original “organic juice bar” label with the introduction of organic soups and wraps in 2020. The category expansion supports the brand’s shift into a QSR organic eatery (and organic juice bar) positioning.
