Juice It Up!, was been recognized by Military Times as one of 2017’s best franchise opportunities for veterans. The company was ranked No. 9 in a list of 43 veteran-friendly franchise businesses. To show appreciation to those who have served, Juice It Up! offers veterans a franchise fee discount of $15,000 to open their very own location. With only two smoothie chains making this year’s list, Juice It Up! was the only concept offering both fresh-squeezed raw juices and smoothies. Because of the company’s superior veteran incentives, Juice It Up! was ranked 25 spots ahead of the similar concept.
“At Juice It Up! we are passionate about giving back to those who have served to protect our country, and have developed several franchise initiatives to provide business opportunities and incentives for the veteran community,” says Frank Easterbrook, Juice It Up! president and CEO. “Some of our most successful franchises are owned by military veterans who have carried their work ethic into managing their businesses, and we are proud to have these hard-working men and women represent the Juice It Up! brand.”
With over 100 locations open or under development across California, New Mexico, Oregon, and Texas, Juice It Up! is currently awarding a variety of franchise opportunities including area development, single unit, and non-traditional store fronts such as college campuses, airports and gyms across all U.S. regions. With a franchisee-focused culture, Juice It Up! continues to attract highly qualified new and existing franchise operators to grow with the brand. Ideal franchisees possess an entrepreneurial spirit and a creative local store marketing mindset, and are passionate about living a healthy lifestyle.
The Military Times ranking was conducted and scored based on answers provided to a rigorous 110 question survey covering company culture, the performance of franchise units, costs associated with franchising and the financial and other support offered to current and former service members and their families.
