Two-time College Football National Champion and first-round NFL draft pick Tim Tebow will open the first Clean Juice franchise in Florida next month.

Tebow joined Clean Juice as a Country Ambassador in June 2021. Clean Juice also donated to the Tim Tebow Foundation through the Quarters4Kids campaign, which serves underprivileged children. A Tebow store will open in Jacksonville.

Former Florida quarterback and Clean Juice CEO Landon Eccles said in a recent interview with FOX Business that they met two years ago. Knowing Tebow’s foundational work, Eckles said their partnership was a natural fit.
