What Are My Startup Costs?

Starting a juice bar franchise with Juice It Up! is surprisingly accessible

One of the advantages of starting a juice bar with an experienced franchisor like Juice It Up! is the low entry costs. If you were to start a juice bar on your own, without the backing of an experienced franchisor, you would face a certain amount of trial-and-error in terms of choosing an ideal site and purchasing the most efficient equipment, not to mention the added expense of interior design.

With Juice It Up!, there is no guesswork. We have honed the process over years of experience, and we can help you get up and running much more quickly — and probably much more cheaply — than an independent business. Your estimated startup costs for a Juice It Up! franchise, according to Item 7 in our latest Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), will fall between $226,700 and $430,245 depending on the type of location you choose.
