Juice It Up!, one of the nation’s leading raw juice bar and hand-crafted smoothie franchises, announced that system-wide third quarter sales increased 4 percent over quarter three of 2016, and year-to-date are up 5 percent. This also marks Juice It Up!’s seventh consecutive quarter of substantial growth in the highly competitive raw juice and smoothie segment.
The third quarter four percent year-over-year sales increase is a result of a variety of factors including the launch of Juice It Up!’s Golden Summer Refreshers, featuring the new Turmeric Fusion and Chili Lime Mango Smoothie. Expansion is also on the rise with Juice It Up! securing seven new franchise agreements in Q3 alone. With locations in California, Texas, New Mexico, Oregon and opening soon in Florida, there are currently 87 units in operation with plans to add at least 10 additional units by year-end.
“Each quarter, we are thrilled to see new guests and loyalists alike visiting Juice It Up! to order raw juices and our functional bowls and smoothies, which proves that more consumers are focused on leading healthier, active lives,” says Frank Easterbrook, Juice It Up! CEO. “In the booming raw juice culture, over the past two decades we’ve developed a proven model that enables our franchise partners to experience continuous gains by catering to the nutritional wants and needs of a growing population.”
With an operations-focused culture, Juice It Up! is growing with new franchise partners, while existing franchisees continue to invest in the brand. Juice It Up! also offers franchise incentives for veterans of the U.S. military with a 60 percent discount off the initial franchise fee. The company is continuing its pursuit of steady expansion across the nation with ideal franchisees possessing an entrepreneurial spirit, a creative local store marketing mindset, and who are passionate about spreading the brand’s “Live Life Juiced” mantra.
