Juice It Up! has identified 30 prime territories in Los Angeles County that are ideal places to launch a healthy juice and smoothie business
Juices, smoothies and açaí bowls are increasingly popular concepts in food franchising, and there may be no better market to open one of our simple, scalable businesses than Los Angeles County, right in the heart of sunny, health-conscious Southern California.
L.A. is the perfect place for a healthy franchise
Our juice, smoothie and bowl franchise was one of the pioneers among quick and healthy food concepts, and we have our roots firmly planted in Southern California. We’re excited to offer the opportunity to grow in our core market. Consumers nationwide are increasingly interested in healthier meal and snack options, and the Los Angeles area in particular is known for healthy living. People here truly understand that healthy isn’t a goal, it’s a way of life.
“From my perspective, it’s really about matching the concept with the demographic that we know is attracted to our brand today,” says Juice It Up! CEO Chris Braun. “There are a lot of expansion opportunities in the greater Los Angeles area in neighborhoods that have the population density and the disposable income that we look for in our ideal locations.
“We’re not looking exclusively in affluent neighborhoods; we’re looking at areas with lots of families, dual-income families that are interested in living healthier lifestyles. The reality is, people don’t have as much time to stay in and cook. They’re looking for convenient options, but they also want healthier options. Juice It Up! Can become part of their routine, part of their lifestyle.”
Our team has used the latest in demographic data mapping to identify the 30 hottest neighborhoods in L.A. County for a new Juice It Up! franchise. These locations are primed for a fresh juice, smoothie and bowl business, and your business will get a great boost from our broad brand recognition in the area.
The next obvious question for any investor, of course, is what are Juice It Up! franchisees’ profits? How much can you expect to make? While we can’t make revenue projections, we can share past performances as reported by our franchise owners in our annual Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). We are happy to share our FDD with qualified candidates so they can learn more about our financial picture and business model.
Local brand with experience supporting franchisees
Since we first opened in Irvine, CA, in 1995, we have steadily grown. Today, we have nearly 100 units nationwide. We offer outstanding support to our franchisees, and our simple business model is easy to scale. Juice It Up! has been a trailblazer. We were one of the first franchises in the juice and smoothie market and the first to bring the superfruit açaí to the U.S. We attract guests with our healthy, convenient and fully customizable menu of juices, smoothies and bowls, keeping a core menu of classics while continuing to innovate with delicious, healthy concoctions that guests crave.
Marcus Skinner, Vice President of Operations, said Juice It Up! ensures our franchisees have protected trade areas without having to fight for business with another Juice It Up franchise. We’ll never over-saturate the market with a store on every corner, because our culture is a collaborative one.
And we can get you up and running very quickly. “From start to finish, between three and six months you can have your doors open and operating,” Skinner says.
