Clean Juice, the first and only USDA-certified organic juice and food bar franchise, announced the opening of its first store in Nashua, New Hampshire, located at 2 Cellu Drive in Amherst Street Village shopping plaza. Franchise owners Marybeth and Chris Fiengo will celebrate a weeklong Grand Opening to introduce the brand’s popular all-organic, hand-made smoothies, wraps, salads, acai bowls, and more beginning Saturday, September 16.
For years, Marybeth and Chris wanted a restaurant of their own. They considered New Haven-style pizza and other popular food concepts. Chris, who coached several community sports teams for young adults, noted how much pizza, burgers, and chicken people consumed and how limited access the community had to legitimate healthy restaurant options.
As the Fiengos started a conscious effort to live and eat healthier post-pandemic, they discovered that preventative health attitudes resonated with many others, including the baseball team Chris was coaching. This inspired them to research a concept that served organic, healthy, fast-casual food options. This was when they discovered Clean Juice.
“We traveled down to North Carolina for our Discovery Day and quickly realized we were aligned with an amazing vibe and mission,” says Chris. “We met with Landon and Kat and immediately connected. They are such great people who truly believe in this brand, and we felt right at home. They truly believe in their mission and the brand’s unrivaled healthy and clean products that so many guests have come to love. We wanted our community to have this!”
The tasting of Clean Juice’s product line-up sealed the deal for Marybeth and Chris, and they knew this was something that the residents of New Hampshire’s Gate City of Nashua would fall in love with.
“There are very few healthy food options in Nashua,” says Marybeth. “Even though considered healthier than the famous burger and chicken brands in our town, the healthy foods could be healthier. And that is Clean Juice!”
The Fiengos were so excited about their New Hampshire Clean Juice that they jumped on the chance to purchase the Simsbury Clean Juice store in Connecticut. Clean Juice opened in Simsbury in 2021 near several high-traffic shopping areas and high schools. Chris and Marybeth saw the opportunity to utilize its location to benefit its community while reaching more people interested in eating healthier while on the go. They are preparing an infrastructure that will enable day-to-day involvement across both locations.
“We are so thrilled for Marybeth and Chris and for the residents of Nashua to have access to truly healthy, fast, and delicious food,” says Landon Eckles, CEO of Clean Juice. “We are inspired by their high-energy and can-do, positive attitudes! While our menu is truly amazing and makes you feel good, the success of Clean Juice relies on its people and their desire to serve others.”
