Main Squeeze Juice Co., the juice and smoothie bar franchise whose ownership group includes New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead, is opening at least four new locations in the St. Louis, Missouri area. The first store is set to open this year as part of Main Squeeze’s move into the Midwest.
“We are so excited to be bringing Main Squeeze to St. Louis and providing quick, healthy options to the local community,” says Madison Kamakas, one of the owners of the Missouri locations. “We are looking forward to being the first Main Squeeze location in Missouri and providing fresh and healthy juices, smoothies and bowls to people across the state.”
Madison and Alex Kamakas, husband and wife duo, have signed on to open four Missouri locations. The duo will be bringing healthy on-the-go options to the Gateway City, an area known for its vibrant restaurant community that is currently undergoing tremendous culinary growth.
“Health begins and ends with how you choose to fuel your body and your lifestyle,” says Main Squeeze CEO Thomas Nieto. “We strongly believe in providing our customers with the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible, and we are excited to expand to St. Louis and Missouri.”
Main Squeeze’s mission is to make healthy easier, and the company’s nutritionist-designed, superfood-centric menu does exactly that. It’s gluten-free and vegan menu offers a daily source of plant-based nutrition packed with natural and quick energy. The concept’s proprietary recipes feature nutritionist-designed cold-pressed juices and superfood smoothies, along with one, three, and five-day juice cleanse programs, shots, and acai bowls created from organic and wild-harvested acai berries from the Amazon rainforest in Northeast Brazil.
The local expansion plans come at a time when Main Squeeze continues to rapidly expand its national footprint. Today, there are 19 locations open and operating throughout Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi, with more than 60 additional franchisee- and corporate-owned stores in various stages of development across the Southeast, and now the Midwest.
