Company CEO, Frank Easterbrook, who has been with Juice It Up! since 1999, has assembled a leadership team of franchising experts to support the success of each franchisee. “The broader market is looking for a solid, owner-operated type of business with a low-entry cost that might be on a scale of 1-3 units. Juice It Up! is perfect for small partnerships, family businesses and, of course, we welcome larger investors who are interested in diversifying their franchise portfolio with a thriving lifestyle brand.”
With an operations-focused culture, Juice It Up! is growing with new franchise partners, while existing franchisees continue to invest in the brand.
