Main Squeeze Juice Co., a Louisiana-based juice and smoothie bar franchise, is set to expand its presence in Texas with a location opening by year’s end in Mont Belvieu at 9209 Eagle Dr.
“As a new dad, I’ve really focused on increasing my health and wellness to increase my well-being and set a good example for my son,” franchisee John Bell said in a company press release. “With that in mind, we wanted to find a proven concept that is beneficial to the well-being of our patrons, and Main Squeeze absolutely fits that mold.”
Bell and his business partner, J.J. Jacobs, joined forces in 2015 to create a real estate and rental property investment business. Jacobs has accumulated nearly two decades of experience in business operations, and Bell serves as a Marine chemist performing inspections on flammable and toxic vessels to ensure safety. He also owns and operates multiple pet supplies and grooming stores in the area.
“The wife of an old co-worker would travel to go to Main Squeeze, and they actually suggested I open a local storefront in Mont Belvieu,” Jacobs said in the release. “Healthy food and drink options here are traditionally few and far between. I looked into it and it seemed like a perfect fit for our town,” he added. “From athletes looking for specific nutrients, to kids seeking something refreshing, or people looking for natural energies in the morning, Main Squeeze offers something to everybody.”
Main Squeeze Juice recently partnered with Conscious Capital Group to help it fast-track franchise sales, real estate development, business intelligence, training, marketing and innovation with the goal of serving more people in more markets.
Founded in 2016, the chain has 26 locations.
