Leading Organic QSR Unveils Third New Center-of-Plate Menu Category as Average Unit Volumes Continue to Increase
Clean Juice, the first and only national USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise, today launched its newest “center of the plate” menu category with New Organic Sandwiches. This new line illustrates the brand’s continued momentum in redefining the organic fast-casual concept as being more than just a juice bar, but an organic eatery. New Organic Sandwiches are the third innovative menu category in as many years preceded by organic salads and wraps.
As part of a full nationwide menu update, the company rolled out four new organic sandwiches including The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, The Ultimate Grilled Cheese, The Egg Salad Sandwich, and The Cali Sandwich. Hand-crafted and made fresh to order with only premium USDA-certified organic ingredients, the sandwiches retail for under $10 in most markets, do not exceed 690 calories, and can be combined with a 16 oz. organic smoothie for $14.95.
“A core business function at Clean Juice is the practice of genuinely listening and responding to what our guests love and want,” said Landon Eckles, CEO, Clean Juice. “As we redefine Clean Juice as a fast-casual organic eatery, we aim to cater to and serve a wider audience base who want to have more organic, nutritious menu options while on the go. We are more than just juice.”

In addition to the new sandwich category, Clean Juice also made several other modifications as part of its full menu relaunch including:
- Permanently adding the fan-favorite Immunity 2.0 blended juice and The Dragon Fruit Bowl acai bowl from previous limited-time offerings
