Earlier this month, the New Orleans juicer and plant-based cafe, Main Squeeze Juice Co., inked a deal with prolific franchisees Don Gatzemeier and Shawnae Stollenwerk to open more than 30 locations across the Grand Canyon State, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.
In a statement, Gatzemeier – who currently owns and operates a number of wellness-focused brands with Stollenwerk such as Elements Massage, Amazing Lash Studio, and Club Pilates – said, “Main Squeeze fits perfectly. We couldn’t believe how easy and delicious healthy eating can be, and the home office team at Main Squeeze Juice Co. really impressed us,” adding, “They love what they do and the positive energy was everywhere.”
Gatzemeier was not immediately available for comment.
Although no locations have been revealed yet, the Business Journal reports that the agreement spans Arizona, including locations planned for Phoenix to Flagstaff and Tuscon to Prescott, with initial outposts opening next year.
Main Squeeze’s flagship location and franchise system both launched in 2017, with the simple mission of “Making Healthy Easier.” Its plant-based menu highlights “proprietary recipes [that] feature dietitian-designed, chef-inspired” juices, mylks, smoothies, bowls, wellness shots, and more.
