Store Marks 100th Opening in Clean Juice Franchise History
Along with his wife, Leilah, former NFL Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion David Tyree is officially opening his own Clean Juice® franchise this Saturday at 68 South Street in Morristown, N.J. The opening marks the 100th overall store for Clean Juice®, which is the first and original USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise.
“Clean Juice stood out to me immediately, and its brand philosophy matched the high standards and principles I set for myself and my family,” said David Tyree. “Integrity was a cornerstone virtue I valued while playing in the NFL and carries through today as a father, husband, team member and business owner. The Clean Juice brand epitomizes integrity, high-quality and is unwilling to sacrifice its standards. We are proud to introduce Clean Juice and its healthy, organic menu to our community.”
Clean Juice sources only the highest quality, premium organic ingredients for its organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, açaí bowls, and a recently expanded lunch menu, all of which are made on-site directly in front of guests. Clean Juice aims to provide the perfect nutrition that comes only from organic food. When and if there is a sourced or seasonal product that cannot be found organically, each franchise location notifies guests through its “transparency board” in the front of all stores.
“As a couple committed to health and wellness, it was important for us to do something that contributed to the well-being of our community,” said Leilah Tyree. “We are glad to be a part of the first juice franchise that is USDA-certified as truly organic. Serving high-quality products is a tremendous opportunity we deeply value!”
Clean Juice recently unveiled new organic wraps and new organic combos along with their seasonal summer menu that features blue spirulina, a powerful immune-boosting antioxidant. The company is committed to the health and wellness of communities it serves and engages with non-profits through regular contributions determined by sales of signature menu items. This includes naming several smoothies and fresh juice items in honor of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada.
“Reaching 100 open stores is a significant milestone, especially given that Clean Juice has only been franchising for four years,” said Landon Eckles, co-founder, and chief executive officer of Clean Juice. “We are proud that the many communities we serve are embracing Clean Juice for its healthy, high-quality products and for the diversity in franchise ownership we promote and strive toward daily.”
David Tyree played college football at Syracuse University before being drafted by the New York Giants in the 2003 NFL Draft. Both a wide receiver and special teams player, he earned a Pro Bowl nod in 2005 for his special teams play. Tyree is best known for his incredible “Helmet Catch” on the Giants’ final drive of Super Bowl XLII in 2008. That catch set the stage for an eventual game-winning touchdown and an improbable 17-14 victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots. Most media outlets and football fans alike acknowledge the catch as the greatest play in Super Bowl history.
After retiring from the NFL in 2010, Tyree was later introduced as the Giants Director of Player Development in 2014 where he served players transitioning through the NFL experience. He then held that position for the following six years. Now firmly embedded in the second chapter of his professional career, he has consistently shown an impressive business acumen that expands across various arenas.
Above all, Tyree is a committed family man. He and his wife, Leilah, currently reside in northern New Jersey with their seven children.
