Main Squeeze Juice Co. franchisees, Andrew Blackwell and Jennifer Perkins, have opened five locations in the New Orleans area in the past three years, three of which opened in the last nine months. If opening three businesses in under a year wasn’t hard enough, the brother and sister duo have also faced many challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic, hurricanes, and raising young children.

Blackwell and Perkins dove into the juice and smoothie business after deciding they wanted to own a business that contributed to the overall wellbeing of the communities they would operate in. After owning three Anytime Fitness gym franchises, they discovered the need for a healthier, quick-service restaurant. Main Squeeze Juice Co. was the perfect franchise opportunity for the duo with its nutritionist-designed, superfood-centric menu that offers a daily source of plant-based nutrition packed with natural and quick energy.
