I Love Juice Bar Franchise Celebrates First Texas Store
Husband and wife set to open juice bar franchise in Plano
Myra and Mike Floyd first considered opening a juice bar franchise when their daughter, Lindsay, got a job working in a big-chain juice store. On a business trip a few months later, Mike happened through an I Love Juice Bar franchise location and called his wife while still waiting in line to order.
“I remember him saying, ‘Myra, I think I found it. I think I found the one,’” Myra says. She and Mike will open their first I Love Juice Bar franchise in Plano, Texas, in October. Eventually, they plan on opening other locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
The couple recently took a few minutes to share their enthusiasm for juicing and their thoughts on why now is the perfect time for an I Love Juice Bar franchise.
I Love Juice Bar franchises are more than just juice
Unlike other juice and smoothie franchises, I Love Juice Bar offers a diversified menu that includes fresh juices, smoothies, coffee, snacks and a grab-and-go cabinet that includes lunch-worthy items. This diverse menu establishes I Love Juice Bar as a go-to for a single-stop food run, as opposed to an afterthought for something healthy to drink.
“That was one thing we loved about the I Love Juice Bar concept, that they had more than just juices and smoothies,” Myra says. “They have some menu items and a more comprehensive selection for people to come in and actually have a meal if they wanted to.”
With our focus on healthful juices and smoothies and locally sourced ingredients when possible, I Love Juice Bar is a community hub where coworkers can grab a quick bite or Mom can duck in with her workout buddies on that running route.
New juice bar franchise owners receive extensive training
After Mike and Myra decided they wanted to own an I Love Juice Bar, they sneaked into the grand opening of an I Love Juice Bar location in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood. A few months later, they were in that store, training to become juice bar owners.
Myra touts the comprehensive training regimen as one of the biggest differences between I Love Juice Bar and other franchise opportunities. One key way we stand out is the diversity of locations where new franchise owners train in greater Nashville area. Whether it’s a busy retail strip mall in Green Hills or the company’s flagship first location in Brentwood, working with the teams in each location provides perspective on how to best manage I Love Juice Bar franchises in your neighborhood.
“You get a more well-rounded training experience because everybody has different ideas,” Myra says. While they’re all working from the same playbook, the manner in which each location delivers that signature, I Love Juice Bar experience is unique. “They’re the same ideas, you find, but they’re expressed in different ways.”
Juice bar customers are committed to health and to I Love Juice Bar
Virtually every industry group agrees: more customers than ever are focused on healthy eating and dining opportunities, and those individuals will go out of their way to find healthy choices when it comes to what they’re eating and drinking. With I Love Juice Bar franchises, customers don’t have to look far. We’re a part of their neighborhood.
In fact, we believe I Love Juice Bar franchises are so successful because each location plugs itself into the neighborhood and quickly becomes a community hub. People come in, they linger with friends, and then they come in again. That’s part of the I Love Juice Bar experience that Myra and Mike enjoy the most.
“You’re making an experience for the customer from the moment they come in the door. They emphasize that every time someone comes into the door to leave feeling better than when they walked through the door,” Myra says.
