October 27, 2017 // Franchising.com // NEW ORLEANS, La. - Main Squeeze Juice Co., a newcomer to the more than $5 billion juice market, is headed to Houston. The New Orleans-based franchise will be opening its first area store in the Meadows Marketplace at 6825 S. Fry Road in Katy.
The new 1,800 square foot store, slated to open in December, will be the first of 10-15 locations Main Squeeze hopes to open in the area over the next few years. According to co-founder and CEO Thomas Nieto, the expansion will be accomplished through franchising and corporate-owned stores.
“Inside of the larger health and wellness industry, juicing has become a hot lifestyle market. But unlike fad diets and food crazes on the opposite end of the health spectrum, the all-natural juice bar has not only survived, but has grown and diversified to the point that it can no longer be called a trend with any seriousness,” said Nieto. “Through our expansion, we look forward to changing the lives of those people that are looking for a healthier and more convenient way of fulfilling their nutritional goals.”
Main Squeeze’s mission is to make healthy easier, and the company’s nutritionist-designed, superfood-centric menu does exactly that. It’s gluten-free and vegan menu offers a daily source of plant-based nutrition packed with natural and quick energy. The concept’s proprietary recipes feature chef-inspired cold-pressed juices and superfood smoothies, along with one-, two- and three-day juice cleanse programs, wellness shots, and acai bowls created from organic and wild-harvested acai berries from the Amazon rainforest in Northeast Brazil.
“Health begins and ends with how you choose to fuel your body and your lifestyle,” said Nieto. “We strongly believe in reviving the idea of 'food as medicine' through our menu - combining the timeless simplicity of fruits and vegetables in a nourishing and refreshing way.”
To augment the company’s growth, Main Squeeze is seeking franchise partners who have a passion for clean, healthy eating and living. Including a franchise fee of $35,000, the total investment to open a 1,300-1,800 square-foot Main Squeeze Juice Co. store ranges from $182,200-$441,100. A typical location will seat 15-25 people, and will retain approximately 5-10 employees.
“Main Squeeze has unlimited growth potential as we can operate in literally any type of location where millennials or young professionals exist,” added Nieto. “From colleges and universities to sports arenas, airports and malls, we are poised to grow everywhere. In smaller footprints, Main Squeeze is a perfect complement to businesses such as gyms, coffee houses and health food stores.”
