As part of its national expansion plans, Juice It Up! aims to open an additional 10-15 locations throughout Central Florida, including Orlando in the next 3 years. The brand currently has 3 franchises in development in the Orlando area. Big opportunities await for qualified entrepreneurs in the region, where people are increasingly embracing healthier lifestyles.
“After experiencing seven consecutive quarters of substantial sales increases, there is great potential to expand the Juice It Up! brand in Florida”, said Carol DeNembo, vice president of business development. “The demand for raw juices, functional smoothies and acai bowls is booming, and our team looks forward to discussing the value of our brand’s proven investment opportunity with entrepreneurs, regardless of their background or industry experience.”
With over 100 stores in operation or under development, Juice It Up! is actively seeking single- and multi-unit operators who are passionate about the brand and committed to providing the highest quality products and customer experience in the markets they serve. Interested candidates should have a minimum net worth of $300,000 and liquid assets of at least $100,000. Depending on the real estate site selected, franchisees can expect the total investment to be between $216,400 – $378,300 for a single unit with a $25,000 initial franchise fee. Juice It Up! also offers franchise deep incentives for veterans of the U.S. military with a 60% discount off the initial franchise fee.
