5 Reasons to Join I Love Juice Bar Franchise
Entrepreneurs who are passionate about health and nutrition are a perfect fit for franchise ownership
There’s never been a better time for health-conscious and passionate entrepreneurs to join the I Love Juice Bar franchise family. 2016 was a record-breaker for us, as 37 new stores have opened with 11 more under construction — and there’s no sign of stopping as we head into 2017 with an energetic momentum to continue our explosive growth nationwide. If you have a passion for health, wellness and community, then owning an I Love Juice Bar franchise may be ideal for you.
“I Love Juice Bar is a strong business, and part of the reason is that we are so sincere in our desire to create a healthy and supportive oasis for our customers,” CEO John Hunt says. “If you are choosing between opening a juice bar and opening a frozen yogurt place, you’re probably not the right candidate. Our franchisees need to be passionate about creating a place that exudes healthiness, energy and positivity.”
Here are 5 reasons why now is the time to join I Love Juice Bar franchise.
Customers demand juice and smoothies, and I Love Juice Bar answers that demand
Today’s health-conscious climate has customers seeking more nutritious alternatives for quick items to devour on the go. The juice and smoothie industry perfectly fills that niche — to the tune of $5 billion each year. Thanks in part to the millennial generation, who are inclined to make juicing a regular lifestyle choice, juice sales are expected to rise between 4 percent and 8 percent in the coming years. Our menu works well in this space; not only do we feature unique juice blends, but we also offer customers the ability to build their own customized concoctions.
We have prime territories available as we rapidly expand across the nation
I Love Juice Bar is still a relatively young franchise, with all the excitement that comes with rapid growth and expansion throughout the country. We have plenty of great territories available for entrepreneurs to join and grow with us. I Love Juice Bar lends itself well to multi-unit ownership, so franchisees’ growth potential is unlimited.
A typical I Love Juice Bar location will be around 1,200 square feet, located in a high-traffic area with good visibility. We also look for areas with a high density of upper-income residents. Nearby gyms, yoga studios and natural food stores also draw customers who are likely to stop by an I Love Juice Bar.
Our product consistency and quality give the customer a stand-out experience every visit
Unlike other juice and smoothie companies that tout natural ingredients and then load their products with sugar and corn syrup, our menu items are made from the finest, freshest ingredients. I Love Juice Bar franchise locations locally source produce and other products for our diverse menu whenever possible. We have a commitment to serve fresh juices produced by hand in the store — and never containing powders or juice syrups. Our delicious menu features only real, wholesome foods produced with care by a team of well-trained and committed juice fans.
“We get all the tools we need to make a consistent product each day, which is important,” Franchise owner Scott Tashie says. “People who come in everyday want the same green juice they had. They get familiar with it and that’s what they want. Just like when you go to Starbucks for your favorite hazelnut mocha latte, you know how it’s supposed to taste and if it doesn’t taste like it should, you know.”
Our training and support set franchisees up for success
I Love Juice Bar’s remarkable systems are backed by industry executives with more than 40 years experience. In early 2014, Nashville-based Fresh Hospitality partnered in I Love Juice Bar, and we are leveraging Fresh Hospitality’s vast experience and systems to drive success for franchisees.
We offer franchisees and store managers hands-on training, which is meant to turn you into a juicing expert and teach you how to use the tools you’ll need to manage your business and drive sales. We train you on all aspects of prepping fruits and vegetables, as well as their nutritional benefits. We also teach you about every aspect of business ownership, including sales, inventory and managing staff.
I Love Juice Bar offers franchise owners state-of-the-art technology
Sophisticated software powers success for our franchisees. Our robust technology platform makes it much easier to manage your restaurant, control costs, plan ahead and maximize revenues.
I Love Juice Bar’s technology allows you to track your inventory and receipts in real-time and flags discrepancies so you can quickly investigate and correct problems. It also automates staff scheduling and provides remote access for busy franchisees.
