Liquid Nutrition Group announced the opening of its first international location in Nassau, Bahamas.

The location is Liquid Nutrition's 12th location open and the first outside of Canada.

Glenn Young, president of Liquid Nutrition Group, is responsible for overseeing the rapidly expanding company.

"2012 has been a great year for Liquid Nutrition and Team Liquid," Young says. "Our first international location is a major milestone for Liquid Nutrition, but equally important, we have a pipeline of stores scheduled to open later this year and through 2013."

Franchise partners Janine and Christine Carey are running the Bahamas location.

In addition to the new location, numerous units are now in the construction phase or have just opened, including in Vancouver, Quebec City, Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal, and Calgary, Canada.

Lease aggreements are being finalized in Los Angeles and New York City, with the first U.S. location scheduled to open in March 2013.

With more than 80 franchises sold in 2012, Liquid Nutrition is poisted to quickly expand its presence in the marketplace. Franchise opportunities are available in select Canadian, U.S., and global markets.
