May 30, 2018 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, California - Juice It Up!, one of the nation’s leading handcrafted smoothie, raw juice, and superfruit bowl franchises, announced the launch of its systemwide menu refresh. All 87 locations have been updated with new menu boards designed to highlight guest favorites, streamline the ordering process and strengthen transparency.

Along with a new look and feel, new items like the PB Cold Brew Mocha Smoothie have been introduced to the menu while the brand’s most successful LTOs including the Chili Lime Mango Smoothie have become permanent fixtures.

Our latest updates are driven by this commitment and we’re confident guests will love the ease of ordering, customization options and our delicious new items.”

“With over two decades of experience in the smoothie and raw juice segment, we have an incredibly firm grasp on what matters most to our guests,” said Meredith Gough, Juice It Up!’s director of brand development. “Each of our customers have their own definition of health along with different wants and needs. Our updated menu is designed to satisfy a broad range of nutritional demands and makes it easy for guests to identify what item makes the most sense for them at that particular time.”
Juice It Up!’s menu overhaul debuts hot on the heels of the brand’s acquisition by SJB Brands, Inc. in February 2018. Under the new leadership, the team’s principal objective is to pursue initiatives that are designed around innovation, growing average store sales and expanding the company’s franchise base to build on the success of the 23-year-old brand. Juice It Up! currently has more than 100 locations open and in development across the nation.
