Clean Juice, a national USDA-certified organic juice and food bar franchise, is opening the doors of its first location with former NFL star Tim Tebow as its partner at the St. John’s Town Center in Jacksonville, Florida.
“We are super excited to be opening the first of many stores with Tim Tebow,” Clean Juice co-Founder and CEO Landon Eckles said in a press release. “Tim is the real deal who truly believes in what we are doing. He’s not just a brand ambassador, he’s an investor in our business because he truly loves and believes in our clean products and our loving focus on the guest. Partnering with Tim is a true blessing for our Clean Juice family. His unwavering faith, passion for clean eating and entrepreneurial spirit make him the perfect partner to expand Clean Juice’s national footprint.”
Tebow has transitioned from professional athlete to philanthropist, humanitarian and entrepreneur, signing with Clean Juice to promote a unified synergy in healthy, clean eating and aligned faith-based values, according to the release. Tebow became an official Clean Juice ambassador in June 2021 with Clean Juice contributing to the Tim Tebow Foundation through the brand’s Quarters4Kids cause marketing program serving underprivileged children in their local communities.
Clean Juice anticipates growth through another 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 extending the Tim Tebow Foundation’s reach.
“When seeking a new business venture, I have to believe in the company and align with its values,” Tebow said in the release. “It is of the utmost importance that I work with companies I truly believe in and use. When eating at Clean Juice, you can trust that you are fueling your body with the highest-quality organic, clean fruits and vegetables. Opening a location in the place I grew up is an exciting venture toward inspiring people to embrace clean living.”
