About Clean Juice

The Clean Juice Growing Franchise Story

How many of us remember that childhood instruction of “eat your veggies” from our parents? Kat Eckles does. Problem was, she didn’t like them (the veggies, not her parents!). Luckily, she grew up to become an adult who does love them now (she even grows her own vegetable garden at home) and she knows how important they are to a well-balanced diet. So, when she started her own family, she wanted to make sure they were part of their well-balanced diet. Her solution? Juicing those veggies and blending them into smoothies with a little bit of banana for sweetness. Her family loved them!

Kat’s entrepreneurially-minded husband, Landon, had a sneaking suspicion others would love them, too, and it didn’t take long for the couple to make it their mission to bring clean and delicious organic juices to as many communities as possible. They opened their first Clean Juice store on June 5, 2015, in Huntersville, NC, and today, what began in Kat’s humble suburban kitchen has grown into over 100 locations in 23 states — one of the fastest-growing franchises on the market!
