Clean Juice® started in 2014 as the brainchild of Kat & Landon Eckles. Landon, after spending years traveling internationally, was ready for a career change and more time at home with his growing family. Kat had spent the better part of a decade making smoothies and juices at home and shot off the idea of opening a juice bar in the Charlotte area.
Landon and Kat quickly jumped into the idea with 100% motivation and heart. They moved to Lake Norman and opened their first location, Birkdale Village, on their 8th wedding anniversary – June 5th, 2015.
Since then, Clean Juice® has over 100 locations in development in 16 states!
THEY LOVE WHAT THEY DO, WHO THEY DO IT WITH, & WHY THEY DO IT.
Knowing that every good and perfect gift is from above, they take this journey seriously, and will work tirelessly to serve the most premier product to the communities that Clean Juice is placed in. At Clean Juice®, we all believe wholeheartedly in a HEALTHY BODY & STRONG SPIRIT, and aim to provide the opportunity to use Clean Juice® to apply this to your everyday life.
2018 Grand Prize Winner
Husband-and-wife team Landon and Kat Eckles recognized the growing trend where people are now investing in their health, often spending more money on food than clothing. The entrepreneurs founded Clean Juice, the only USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise, with the mission of inspiring others to be healthy in body and strong in spirit. Products include acai bowls, juices, juice cleanses, smoothies, oat bowls, custom toast products, and other healthy snacks. Clean Juice now has 27 open locations, with another 75 in development, and an average unit volume of $1 million (per Franchise Disclosure Document, Item 19, 2017).
