Main Squeeze Juice Co., a newcomer to the more than $5 billion juice market—is celebrating a remarkable year of growth for both franchise development and company milestones.
Here’s a look at what Main Squeeze has accomplished in 2018:
- The brand signed nine development deals in 2018 calling for a total of 25 locations over the next several years
- In total, Main Squeeze has nearly 40 locations currently in various stages of development across multiple states.
- Main Squeeze Juice Co. partnered with former New Orleans Saints wide receiver and Super Bowl champion, Marques Colston and his wife Emily.
- Main Squeeze moved their national headquarters from Lake Charles, LA to New Orleans, LA.
“We had an incredibly successful year of building a healthy and solid foundation for Main Squeeze. We elevated every aspect of our business, from products to technology to branding, and we further separated ourselves from our respectable competitors,” says CEO of Main Squeeze, Thomas Nieto. “We are so proud of everything that we were able to accomplish in 2018, but we are just getting started. Our best days are yet to come.”
Looking ahead to 2019, the smoothie and juice concept will more than double their national footprint. Main Squeeze plans to open 15 locations by the end of the year, 11 of which are slated to open within the first half of the year. Additionally, the brand plans to make their entrance into Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas, among other locations.

Main Squeeze’s mission is to make healthy easier, and the company’s nutritionist-designed, superfood-centric menu does exactly that by offering a daily source of plant-based nutrition packed with natural and quick energy. The concept’s proprietary recipes feature chef-inspired cold-pressed juices and superfood smoothies, along with one-, two- and three-day juice cleanse programs, wellness shots, and acai bowls created from organic and wild-harvested acai berries from the Amazon rainforest in Northeast Brazil.
To augment its growth, Main Squeeze Juice Co. is seeking qualified franchise partners who are passionate about health and wellness. Including a franchise fee of $35,000, the total investment to open a Main Squeeze is estimated to range from $254,900 to 509,000. The average store is approximately 1,500 square feet and employs 10-15 full- and part-time employees.
