Clean Juice’s CoFounders Want to Make Organic Restaurant Food Accessible to Everyone

CJ CHARLOTTE, NCJan 18, 2022 | Landon and Kat Eckles grew their franchise base very quickly from zero to 120 stores in seven years without sacrificing quality.

Although buzzy phrases like “clean ingredients,” “no artificial preservatives” and “cage-free” have circulated the health-conscious restaurant industry for some time, Landon and Kat Eckles believe that no national chain has ever attempted to meticulously curate a USDA organic-certified menu and lifestyle to go along with it. It’s within this clean-eating white space that the husband-and-wife team have been rapidly expanding their smoothie and health food franchise, Clean Juice.
