Clean Juice, a USDA-certified and 100% organic juice bar, opened March 26 at 2000 Meridian Blvd., Ste. 120, Franklin, according to owner Maylissa Ballance.

In addition to organic cold-pressed juice, the store sells smoothies, wellness shots, green salads, sandwiches and wraps, and other healthy fare, according to its website.

Ballance said she was drawn to open the location because Clean Juice helped her improve her health, and she wanted to help fitness conscious people, she said.

“Through my own health journey, I came across Clean Juice as a customer and wanted to help people with dietary restrictions or who prioritize health and wellness,” she said. “Most importantly I want people to be able to find a community and support.”

The business will celebrate a ribbon cutting April 7 from 4-6 p.m., Ballance said.

On April 9, for the store's grand opening, the first 50 customers will receive free Clean Juice for a year, and a free kid’s smoothie will be offered from 2-5 p.m. with the purchase of a 16- or 24-ounce smoothie, Ballance said.
