Juice and smoothie chain Juice It Up said it’s seeing record sales so far this year driven in part by digital and delivery.


The Newport Beach-based company said same-store sales for the first six months of this year increased 48.1% compared to the same period a year ago. Comparable sales in the first half of 2021 also represented a 35% increase from the first six months of 2019.

Orders placed through the digital channel, third-party delivery, growth in the loyalty program and new menu items all helped Juice It Up notch the gains, the company said.


Average annual sales for franchisees are $785,000 for the top 25% and $637,000 for the top 50%.


Juice It Up said it has more than 100 stores either open or in development.
