CHARLOTTE,NC–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clean Juice — the first and only national USDA-certified organic juice and food bar franchise — today announced the first August store opening of celebrated athlete and brand’s national ambassador, Tim Tebow, at St. John’s Town Center in Jacksonville, FL. Clean Juice’s partnership with Tebow reinforces the brand’s mission to promote a healthy body and strong mind by promoting healthier food choices and making organic foods and beverages readily available in a fast-casual setting.
Tebow, a two-time national champion, Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL star, has successfully transitioned from professional athlete to philanthropist, humanitarian and entrepreneur and enrolled in Clean Juice to create a unified synergy of healthy, clean eating and aligned faith-based communities to promote values. Tebow became an official Clean Juice Ambassador in June 2021, with Clean Juice helping to make it happen Tim Tebow Foundation through the brand Quarters4Kids Cause marketing program for underprivileged children in their local communities.
“We are very excited to be opening the first of many stores with Tim Tebow,” said Landon Eckles, Clean Juice co-founder and CEO. “Tim is the real deal who really believes in what we do. Not only is he a brand ambassador, he is an investor in our business because he genuinely loves and believes in our clean products and loving focus on the guest. Partnering with Tim is a true blessing to our Clean Juice family. His unwavering belief, passion for clean eating and entrepreneurial spirit make him the perfect partner to grow Clean Juice’s national presence.”
Clean Juice signed its 200th store earlier this year, marking an impressive growth pattern in nearly seven years of franchise operations. The rising star of fast food restaurants expects further growth with two dozen store openings by the end of the year. With the opening of this store in his hometown of Jacksonville, Tebow continues to invest in raising Clean Juice’s national profile while creating new jobs, strengthening community-based nutrition education programs and expanding the reach of the Tim Tebow Foundation.
Tebow echoed a similar sentiment to Eckles, saying, “When I’m looking for a new business venture, I have to believe in the company and align myself with its values. It is of paramount importance that I work with companies that I truly believe in and use. When you eat at Clean Juice, you can rest assured that you’re fueling your body with the highest quality, pure, organic fruits and vegetables. Opening a location in the place where I grew up is an exciting endeavor to inspire people to embrace clean living.”
