Tim Tebow will open the first Clean Juice store, talks about partnership with the company

Tim Tebow, the two-time national college football champion and first-round NFL draft pick, will open his first Clean Juice franchise in Florida next month.

Tebow joined Clean Juice as a national ambassador in June 2021. Clean Juice also contributed to the Tim Tebow Foundation through the Quarters4Kids campaign serving disadvantaged children. The Tebow store will open in Jacksonville.

Former Florida quarterback and Clean Juice CEO Landon Eckles told FOX Business in a recent interview that they met just over two years ago. Eckles said he was familiar with Tebow’s fundamental work and their collaboration was a natural fit.

“(I) got to sit down with (Landon’s wife) Kat and Landon and talk about the foundation work and I got to hear more about Clean Juice and I thought, wait a second, I love people, it was great, we hit it out, and I was like, I love the production, and then I heard the mission statement and the process behind it and I was like dang, it’s really great. Then we just found other ways to collaborate, “Tebow She said.

“So, I had to be an ambassador for the last moment and I opened my first shop here in a couple of weeks, which I’m super excited about. But I love it because all over the country I go to, I get the chance to stop and have a great product. The way they impact so many people, and the encouragement and the fact that they are not ashamed for what they stand for, and why they are doing it, I think is something so encouraging to me . And also, to see the impact it has had on so many people. Yes, it’s just a few seconds that you get every time someone walks in, but you have the ability to encourage them to make a difference, to inspire people the little things in the the way it was done “.

Clean Juice was launched in 2016 as the first and only USDA certified organic juice and food bar franchise. Eckles told FOX Business that the company opened its 200th store earlier this year and served nearly four million customers nationwide.

“We want to make an impact on people,” Eckles said. “We have the ability to do this every single day. Last year we served nearly four million guests. We have the ability to improve four million lives and that number continues to grow.

“We started out because we really wanted to have a place that served an organic and truly healthy product in the community we serve. My wife has always been super passionate about health and wellness. In the end, she got me involved. We just wanted to do something together and take the our strengths and really create something that could benefit people, not just in the food we serve, but in the way we impacted them every time they walked into our shop. “

Eckles suggested that a Clean Juice by Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) program might someday be made.

The NIL agreements have been an important part of college track and field in recent years. Everyone from Tom Brady to local air conditioning companies seem to have NIL deals with college athletes.

“We open stores every week. Our brand is really growing. We’ve only really been doing it for six years and having over 200 locations at this point is absolutely amazing,” said Eckles. “Right now, we have an incredible collaboration with Tim Tebow. We know a lot of athletes, a lot of great people who are great people and could be great ambassadors. We haven’t done anything yet. But we think it might be an opportunity someday.”
