The former University of Florida and NFL quarterback is a brand ambassador for the organic juice franchise.
Clean Juice says the first store opening for the brand’s national ambassador Tim Tebow will be in mid- to late September
The store is in The Markets at Town Center. The company previously said the store would open Aug. 26.
Clean Juice contributes to the Tim Tebow Foundation through the brand’s Quarters4Kids marketing program serving underprivileged children, according to a July 28 news release from the company.
“Tim is the real deal who truly believes in what we are doing. He’s not just a brand ambassador, he’s an investor in our business because he truly loves and believes in our clean products and our loving focus on the guest. Partnering with Tim is a true blessing for our Clean Juice family,” said Clean Juice co-founder and CEO Landon Eckles.
Tebow, a Jacksonville resident, became a Clean Juice brand ambassador in June 2021.
“When seeking a new business venture, I have to believe in the company and align with its values. It is of the utmost importance that I work with companies I truly believe in and use. Opening a location in the place I grew up is an exciting venture toward inspiring people to embrace clean living,” Tebow said in the release.
Landon and Kat Eckles founded Clean Juice in 2016 in North Carolina as the first USDA-certified organic juice and food bar franchise.
The restaurants serve organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, açaí bowls, salads, sandwiches, wraps and other healthy foods.
