As promised, we have another exciting announcement about the Shops at Twickenham Square! Alison Dennis, who was featured in our recent Cabana Wax blog, has more news to share with Huntsville. And this time, it involves cold-pressed juices, açaí bowls, avocado toast, and other healthy fare.
“Our team can’t wait to open Alabama’s first Clean Juice location at Twickenham Square,” said Alison, co-owner and general manager of Clean Juice. “In Huntsville, we have a community that is always looking for ways to improve their health and wellness, and our store hopes to help people achieve some of their health goals in a fun and convenient way.”
A 1,200 square foot space, Clean Juice plans to open in August of this year! Very soon, people near the downtown, medical district, and Blossomwood neighborhoods will be able to drop in for a fresh juice and açaí bowl, or a pick up a quick bite from the shop’s grab-and-go bar.
The new eatery will be open:
Monday through Friday 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Sunday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
What is Clean Juice?
When husband and wife team Kat and Landon Eckles were looking for a career change, the duo developed the idea of creating a juice bar that focused on providing fresh, organic options along with a guest-focused experience.
In 2015, the Eckles opened the original Clean Juice store in Huntersville, North Carolina. Three short years later, Clean Juice now has more than 100 locations throughout 16 states, with plans to continue expanding.
“The Eckles bring a fresh, trendy vibe to the Clean Juice brand that’s made it stand out in the market,” explained Alison. “They have created something truly unique, because it’s ‘health food’ that not only tastes great but is actually healthy. Customers can rest easy knowing that we’re using 100% USDA Certified Organic ingredients—meaning everything we serve, from our celery to our coffee to our cinnamon, is free from chemicals, pesticides, and GMOs. And we never add sugar to your drink.”
With its extensive menu of juices, smoothies, açaí bowls, and toasts, Clean Juice provides nutritional information for all of its offerings online.
Clean Juice has drummed up praise in publications like Huffington Post, Inc., and Bustle Magazine since its opening. In fact, the business was voted “Fastest Growing Franchise for 2018” by Franchise Gator; its success shows no end in sight.
The dream team.
Alison’s involvement with Clean Juice actually came out of wanting to situate Cabana Wax at Twickenham Square. She and her husband Garrett found the perfect space next to Beaute Nail Spa, but it had twice the amount of square footage they needed.
“As luck would have it, our friends Allie and Todd Hose, and Todd’s brother and sister-in-law, Tyler and Jessica Hose, had known the Eckles for years and had been awaiting the right opportunity to open a Clean Juice store in Alabama,” said Alison.
“After the Hoses introduced us to this awesome concept, we met with the coporate office and immediately knew we wanted to be part of the business. So, we pitched the idea of incorporating Clean Juice and Cabana Wax into the space, and the landlord agreed to let us divide it.”
It was decided that each of the six would have ownership in Clean Juice and contribute their unique skills to the project.
“Allie is a marketing professional, Todd is a former commercial real estate agent, Tyler works in finance, Jessica grew up immersed in a family of successful business owners, and Garrett and I are lawyers,” Alison shared. “More importantly, all six of us wholeheartedly believe in the concept and are passionate about making Twickenham one of the brand’s best stores.”
“Huntsville was the perfect spot for the first Alabama location.”
“On a macro level, the people of Huntsville are smart and they care about their health,” said Alison. “This is evident from the amount of interest Huntsvillians show in fitness and clean eating. On a more micro level, our space at Twickenham Square is surrounded by businesses that serve similar interests. People who want a 30-minute workout at 9Round or a quick service at Cabana Wax are likely to be interested in fast, healthy food too.”
Clean Juice will also benefit those who live and work near Twickenham who have awaited a convenient spot for coffee and breakfast items beginning at 7 a.m. on weekdays.
“We take customer care seriously.”
“The founders of Clean Juice created the business with very specific core values,” said Alison. “One of the most important tenets behind the brand is that we respect others by respecting their time. We want to be a place that you get in and out of quickly without sacrificing food quality.”
Each day, the juice bar will have a grab-and-go bar stocked and ready to go upon opening.
“The main takeaway is that you come first and side work comes second,” clarified Alison. “There will never be anything more important than you when you’re in our store.”
Why choose Clean Juice?
Although Huntsville will have to wait until August to get its hands on a cold-pressed juice or a Beach Bowl, the owners of Clean Juice Twickenham promise it will be well worth it.
“We believe we can inspire and motivate people by making clean eating enjoyable,” said Alison. “Whether it’s almond toast or a chocolate protein smoothie, we want you to have confidence that what you’re eating is organic, full of nutrients, and carefully vetted by the Clean Juice team.”
