With unparalleled experience, the Juice It Up! team knows what works and what doesn’t, and while younger brands are learning the hard way, Juice It Up! franchisees are able to implement best practices gained over the past 22 years.
“We’ve seen systemwide same-store sales and average unit volume increases each quarter, with some impressive financials coming out of our Texas locations,” said Carol DeNembo, vice president of business development. “These past few years we’ve put a heavy focus on developing healthful products that are not only incredibly functional, but also taste great; and we’re searching for the right partners who are passionate about our brand and eager to apply our proven formula for success to help fuel the active lifestyles of area residents.”
All Juice It Up! products are designed to not only be delicious, but also meet the functional and nutritional wants and needs of guests at every level of health.

With Smoothie Bowls, guests can transform their favorite Classic and Veggie Smoothie into a nourishing meal replacement, topped with fresh bananas, granola and a drizzle of honey. To supercharge any bowl or smoothie, guests can ask to “Make it Green” by blending in raw kale and spinach to add an extra dose of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Kicking off 2017, the brand has launched its line of organic, cold-pressed bottled juices in six great-tasting flavors, each serving a specific functional purpose, ideal for anyone looking for a balanced way to live a healthy, nutritious lifestyle.
The brand is targeting an additional 8-10 units in the state through a variety of franchise opportunities including area developments, single units, and non-traditional store fronts such as college campuses, malls, airports and gyms across all U.S. regions of Texas. Juice It Up! also offers franchise incentives for veterans of the U.S. military. With a franchisee-focused culture, Juice It Up! continues to attract franchise operators to grow with the brand.
