June 26, 2013 // Franchising.com // WESTON, FL – JuiceBlendz, the popular South Florida-based smoothie franchise, is pleased to announce national expansion plans with its first Michigan location scheduled to open later this summer.
According to Adam Ogden, founder and CEO of JuiceBlendz, “We are thrilled to grow our franchise in a completely new market. Since opening our first site in 2005, we have grown exponentially in the South Florida market. An aggressive national franchise plan has always been part of the company’s growth strategy. We are pleased to have expanded our presence in Florida, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and now Michigan.”
JuiceBlendz International, which operates the JuiceBlendz and YoBlendz franchises, has experienced great success with both traditional and non-traditional locations such as those within stadiums/arenas, college campuses, high schools and convenience stores.
“JuiceBlendz is committed to the continuing expansion, growth and success of our stores and franchise system,” continues Ogden. “As the brand continues to develop and strengthen, we remain dedicated to providing the highest quality product. And, with continued growth comes employment opportunities. The door is certainly open for dedicated individuals in Michigan who want to be a part of our growing team, which is a rare opportunity in today’s job market.”
Franchisees TJ and Dana Mettler found the JuiceBlendz franchise through working with Brigitte Betser of FranNet of Michigan. She helped pair them with JuiceBlendz because of their desire to offer a healthy alternative to fast food and other quick service restaurant formats. “We wanted to open a franchise that had a solid name and reputation, and the natural ingredients and healthy nature of the product really stood out to us. We are pleased to become the newest franchisee of the JuiceBlendz brand,” stated TJ Mettler. The couple plans to hire a minimum of 15 employees, and is preparing their Downtown Grand Rapids location (15 Ionia Ave. SW, Suite 100) for a grand opening in August.
