The I Love Juice Bar premium fresh juice franchise will reach a milestone September 28th when it opens its 50th location, in McKinney, TX. It will be the first location nationwide to offer drive-thru service and a digital menu.
“People come back multiple times a day,” says co-owner John Zuffinetti. “They’ll show up at 7 a.m., get their juice, a smoothie or a muffin, and then we see them at lunch when they’re coming to get their Pad Thai Noodles or Spring Rolls with Gluten-Free Peanut Sauce. There’s just so much to choose from, people keep coming back for whatever they’re craving at that moment.”
Having a drive-thru menu for people on the go will make service much quicker for busy parents and people in a hurry, says John. “We’re also a great place to meet people or work remotely. People always comment on how they love our interior design.”
He and his wife Brittney, opened their first store in Texas in 2016, after moving from Southern California in 2012. They are excited about the direction that I Love Juice Bar is headed, and are looking forward to meeting McKinney customers at the 6th store in the state.
“We are a doorway to health and wellness,” says Brittney. “This is about what we can provide for the community. We also offer creative options to help children get started on living a healthy lifestyle and learning about nutrition. Kids love our green smoothies.”
The husband and wife team share a diverse background in service businesses and franchising. With John’s 15+ years of restaurant hospitality experience and Brittney’s 10+ years entrepreneurial business background, the family is bringing a fresh new concept to North Texas.
