Coast-to-coast chain Clean Juice brings its USDA-certified organic lineup of bright juices, pumpkin-packed lattes and acai bowls, and cleanse programs to Edina this month.

A grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, October 16, in Edina’s Nolan Mains shopping plaza (3943 Market Street). Two more Clean Juice locations are scheduled to pop up in the Twin Cities by the end of 2022, a rep tells Eater. Along with its colorful selection of cold-pressed juices filled with ingredients like Himalayan pink sea salt, cacao, and turmeric, Clean Juice is also known for its cleanse clubs and a nutritious menu full of smoothies, almond butter and avocado toasts, acai bowl, wellness shots, wraps, and salads.

Landon and Kat Eckles started Clean Juice in 2016 as the nation’s first USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise, and Edina’s opening marks its 114th location across 28 states. Twin Cities franchise partner and former flight attendant Sherri Fink became a fan of the brand while living in Park Ridge, Illinois, and spotted a need for more healthy options while visiting her son in Minnesota. Clean Juice’s entry into the Twin Cities adds to a growing wellness market that includes recent arrivals from Impulse Juice Co. and Minnesota’s first Black-owned juice bar The Dripping Root.

Along with a pumpkin spice latte filled with mushroom extract and coconut milk on Clean Juice’s fall menu, an acai bowl features maple syrup, pumpkin spices and seeds, almond milk, granola, and banana.

Clean Juice ranked No. 154 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2021 Franchise 500 and holds the No. 1 spot in Franchise Gator’s 2021 Fastest-Growing Franchises list. NFL quarterback and philanthropist Tim Tebow signed on as its first national ambassador this summer.
