Juice It Up!, one of the nation’s leading handcrafted smoothie, raw juice, and superfruit bowl chains, announced its newly signed franchise agreement with new Inland Empire franchise partners, Joseph Karaki and Alfred Daher. Under this partnership, Juice It Up! will be opening its first Jurupa Valley location in early 2019. The new store will be located on Jurupa Road and will be a 400-sq. ft. location as part of the 76 gas station unit, bringing the brand’s functional fresh-squeezed raw juices, blended-to-order real fruit smoothies, nutrient-rich açaí and pitaya bowls, and cold pressed bottled juices to busy Jurupa Valley residents for the first time.

As today’s consumers pursue healthier lifestyles, demand for nutritious products like those offered by Juice It Up! is on the rise. As a leader in the raw juice and smoothie space with over two decades of experience in the $32.1 billion U.S. beverage-snack industry, which was recently recognized as one of 2018’s top five bestselling restaurant segments, Juice It Up! is proud to partner with experienced franchisees like Joseph and Alfred to open its 25th Riverside County location.

“We’re so excited to bring Juice It Up!’s fresh raw juices and handcrafted smoothies and bowls to Jurupa Valley residents early next year, and by opening our new location as part of a 76 gas station unit, we’ll be able to give customers and younger guests looking for a snack during lunch or after school, a healthier on-the-go choice,” says franchise partner and co-owner, Joseph Karaki. “We can’t wait for next year, when we’ll have the chance to make healthier options even more readily available to our neighbors, by introducing Juice It Up!’s amazing products to the Jurupa Valley community for the first time.”

All Juice It Up! products are designed to be both delicious and functional, meeting the nutritional wants and needs of guests at every level of health. Menu items include fresh-squeezed raw juices, blended-to-order real fruit and veggie smoothies, and nutrient-rich bowls loaded with superfruits Açaí and Pitaya. With the brand’s Smoothie Bowls, guests can transform their favorite Classic and Veggie Smoothie into a nourishing meal replacement, topped with fresh bananas, granola and a drizzle of honey. To supercharge any bowl or smoothie, Juice It Up! offers a “Make it Green” option by blending in raw kale and spinach to add an extra dose of fiber, vitamins and minerals, as well as the new option of topping their bowl with a variety of ingredients for further customization.

Karaki continues, “it’s always fun opening a new franchise concept, and with a high demand for the brand in our community, we are even more excited to spread Juice It Up!’s hand-crafted smoothies and fresh-squeezed raw juices to brand new customers in the area.”

Juice It Up!’s first Jurupa Valley location will open as part of the 76 gas station’s convenience store in Spring 2019 at 9306 Jurupa Road, Jurupa Valley, Calif. 92509.
