Juice It Up!, a premier raw juice bar and handcrafted smoothie franchise, announced same-store sales were up 7 percent over the previous year’s third quarter. The company saw an uptick in average unit volume and the number of stores opened on average was up 5 percent over last year. These latest financials follow on the heels of Juice It Up!’s incredibly successful summer brand campaign where they introduced the limited-edition California Cooler, one of the most successful LTOs in the brand’s 20 year history.
“As the raw juice and smoothie category continues its rapid growth, our continuous sales increases are a testament to Juice It Up!’s strong position in the competitive space,” says Carol DeNembo, Juice It Up! vice president. “Our commitment to nutrition and innovation has fueled our success for the past two decades, and we’re looking forward to a solid fourth quarter with the introduction of a special-edition fall smoothie that we know our guests will love.”
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, and on target to open its 86th location before the end of the year, Juice It Up! is continuing its pursuit of steady expansion across the nation. The brand is currently awarding a variety of franchise opportunities including area development, single unit, and nontraditional opportunities such as college campuses, airports, and gyms throughout the U.S.
