Juice It Up!, one of the nation’s leading raw juice bar and hand-crafted smoothie franchises, is teaming up with longtime partner Sambazon, the pioneer of açaí, to celebrate April açaí awareness month by giving away nearly 2,600 free Açaí Bowls. Throughout the month of April, guests are encouraged to participate in Juice It Up!’s Instagram photo contest for their chance to win. One participant from all 84 Juice It Up! locations will win free Açaí Bowls every day from May 2 to May 31 (winners will be notified on May 1).
Açaí has long been held as one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods on the planet and is highly regarded for its remarkable levels of antioxidants and healthy omega fats. Because Juice It Up!’s discerning customers value functional product options, the Ultimate Açaí Bowl and the Ultimate Berry Bowl are two of the chain’s most popular menu items.
· The Ultimate Açaí Bowl features a blend of organic Sambazon açaí, guarana, banana, and apple juice blend, topped with organic omega-3 granola, sliced bananas, and honey.
· Ultimate Berry Bowl features organic Sambazon açaí, guarana, strawberry juice blend, strawberries and blueberries, topped with organic omega-3 granola, sliced banana, strawberries and a drizzle of honey.
“We’re thrilled to dedicate the entire month of April to promoting the amazing health benefits of açaí while having some fun with our guests by giving away a ton of free Açaí Bowls,” says Frank Easterbrook, Juice It Up! president and CEO. “Not only is açaí a powerful ingredient, it tastes amazing too; making our Açaí Bowls an ideal meal replacement helping to fuel the healthy, active lifestyles of our guests. We’re looking forward to seeing the fun photos our fans post.”
Entering the açaí contest is easy: Customers can head to their local Juice It Up! any day in April and purchase an Açaí Bowl, follow @JuiceItUp and @Sambazon on Instagram, and post a photo of their bowl with the store number hashtag (which can be found on their receipt).
Available year-round, both Açaí Bowls are offered alongside Juice It Up!’s blended-to-order real fruit and veggie smoothies, fresh-squeezed functional raw juices, and nutrient-rich Smoothie Bowls. All Juice It Up! products are created with equal focus on flavor and formulated to meet the nutritional wants and needs of guests at every level of health.
