GROWING DEMAND FOR ORGANIC FOODS & COMPANY CULTURE KEYS TO EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AS CLEAN JUICE ENTERS ITS 31ST STATE
HINSDALE–Clean Juice®, the first and only national USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise and quick service restaurant announced today the signing of 14 new stores in the first 2.5 months of the year highlighted by its expansion into its 30th and 31st states in Utah and New Hampshire, respectively.
The popular quick-serve juice and food bar franchise continues its record-setting growth through a personal guest experience, building aided and unaided brand awareness with the help of national ambassador Tim Tebow and developing new seasonal product innovations like its new Refreshers blended juice superfood smoothie announced earlier this month.
In addition to the brand's entrance into Utah (St. George) and New Hampshire (Amherst), Clean Juice Franchise Partners have signed on in Idaho Falls, ID; Bowling Green, KY; Hinsdale, IL; Edmonds, OK; Pearland, TX; Prosper, TX; and multi-unit agreements in Lexington and Louisville, KY; Dothan, AL; Pensacola, FL; and Las Vegas, NV.

New people bring new energy and new opportunities to win guests for life, and that's a big part of our growth over the years. We feel privileged to support our Franchise Partners and serve with truly clean, healthy and unprocessed fast food," said Landon Eckles, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Clean Juice.
"Keeping to our core values, company culture and brand integrity continues to drive our growth both in customer base and entrepreneurs looking to serve their communities especially Utah and New Hampshire."
