Landon and Kat are the co-founders of Clear Juice, and he shares the journey that they began collectively once they had been initially seeking to purchase a franchise, however couldn’t discover one which they thought match. So, they as an alternative began their very own firm and known as it Clear Juice.

And large information, simply final week, they introduced that Tim Tebow is now their new nationwide model ambassador. Along with now rising Clear Juice, they’ve launched a second franchise idea. They’ve acquired loads happening. You’re going to be taught loads from Landon’s interview. So, let’s go forward and bounce proper into it.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (01:32):
Tom, thanks for having me. My identify’s Landon Eckles. I’m the CEO and co-founder of Clear Juice in addition to a more moderen franchise firm that we launched known as Freecoat Nails. And I can bounce into my background, when you’d like?
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (01:47):
Certain. Yeah. That’d be incredible.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (01:49):
Certain. So, I began my profession within the pharmaceutical business. Proper out of school, I jumped into pharma gross sales and so, that gross sales and advertising and marketing background. I did that for about 5 years after which jumped into administration at that firm. So, discovered a bit bit about management and main a staff. That was the primary time I had ever had actual direct reviews. So, I had a staff of 12 or so. So, studying by means of the hiring and the firing, and simply the worker facet of it. So, that was my first actual expertise of management. And actually, I wasn’t excellent. I wasn’t an excellent chief, however all of us develop by means of our careers, proper?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (02:32):
I did that for some time after which I really went on board with a household firm doing actual property improvement, really in Asia. So, I used to be touring loads. I used to be in Asia, engaged on fundraising and dealing on fairly huge actual property offers, which was cool, an incredible expertise. I discovered loads once more, about actual property, how elevating cash for actual property works and the way partnerships work. And so, that was an incredible profession, but it surely took me away from my household. My spouse and I had three children on the time, we had been pregnant with our fourth and I used to be gone loads, and it was simply actually, actually laborious. And so, that’s once we actually determined to open Clear Juice, actually scratch the entrepreneurial itch that we each had. And that’s once we actually determined to go for it.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (03:20):
Wow. Wow. What a experience. Nicely, you had me at an actual property in Asia. So, that simply sounded attention-grabbing, of all locations to be doing actual property, I wasn’t anticipating that. So, I suppose, what had been you doing for actual property? Have been you shopping for, promoting, constructing? I’m simply curious on that.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (03:41):
Yeah. It was my uncle’s firm, and he had been going to Asia, particularly China, for gosh, 25 years, a very very long time, simply constructing relationships over there. And so, he created a enterprise round actually consulting and round actual property improvement for actually huge tasks. So, blended use tasks like workplace, residential, lodge, multi function huge challenge. He’d go over and work with the native municipalities on what that sort of massive scale improvement would appear to be.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (04:16):
After which, we might additionally convey in several capital suppliers, so, folks and entities, and corporations, who had been desirous about investing in these tasks. Actually, by means of the relationships he had constructed, we had been capable of marry a few of these alternatives and assist usher in actually nice architects and planners on among the metropolis improvement stuff. And so, it was actually cool, very, very distinctive enterprise, very distinctive alternative, that I did from most likely round 2011 to 2014.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (04:47):
Wow. Actually, actually, actually nice expertise. So, you go from worldwide actual property investor and individual, to now coming again to the States saying, “I need to do one thing the place I’m extra homebound. I need to be with my household, my spouse and children.” The place does the concept for Clear Juice come from?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (05:09):
So, it actually got here from her. I give her all of the credit score on that one. So, we needed to do one thing wholesome. Each of us had been obsessed with well being and wellness, and we consider that well being actually begins out of your food plan. It’s food plan, food plan, food plan. After which, from there, when you’ve acquired food plan, it’s different issues like train and sleep, et cetera, however the food plan is so necessary. And so, once we determined that we needed to do one thing collectively, we had all the time beloved the concept of opening a bit cafe or a restaurant or one thing, one thing that served our group, we simply beloved that idea, that thought round offering one thing that was really wholesome.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (05:44):
And it’s humorous, we really checked out among the totally different franchise alternatives that had been on the market on the time, and we simply couldn’t discover something that we felt like was what we needed to do. We thought that everybody used natural produce to make their stuff, however we simply discovered that that wasn’t the case. And so, the extra we appeared round, my spouse was like, “Man, I believe there’s a giant alternative to do it a distinct method, the place we’re not including sugar to each smoothie, the place we’re really utilizing licensed natural produce to make all of our stuff.”
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (06:17):
And so, it was humorous, her well-known line is that she was like, “Yeah, I suppose we are able to open one in all these different ideas, however I’m by no means going to eat the merchandise there.” And I used to be like, “Nicely, that’s so bizarre. I’d by no means try this.” Proper? So, that’s us, once we actually determined that we had been going to open our personal factor. We spent a couple of yr creating the idea, the menu, discovering the actual property, negotiating the house, and developing with the model. And I imply, the whole lot. So, I give up the job, spent a yr creating Clear Juice, after which we opened a couple of yr later.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (06:46):
Wow. Wow. And so, once you began the enterprise, did you’ve gotten this concept of franchising, in your thoughts, was that a part of it? Or, what had been you pondering once you began?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (06:58):
We actually didn’t. Clearly, it was the primary enterprise like this that we had opened. We had by no means been concerned in a franchise, neither one in all us had franchising expertise, however we stored having folks are available and say, “Hey, is that this a franchise? Hey, the place can I purchase a franchise? The place’s your property workplace?” And I’d inform them, “It’s within the kitchen, within the again.” There have been simply a lot request for franchising, and so, we began trying into it. At first, we had been a bit hesitant simply because there are some horror tales on the market the place folks franchise, after which they don’t have actually good model requirements and methods to audit and ensure that the model is true at each retailer. And typically these franchisees take over they usually begin promoting stuff that you just don’t need them to promote.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (07:45):
And we had been licensed organics. We’re the primary to scale a licensed natural meals idea by means of franchising throughout the nation. And so for us, the truth that we go to such lengths to get the supplies that we use to make our merchandise was actually necessary. So, we needed to ensure that we had all of the steps in a row, to have the ability to franchise earlier than we jumped into it. After which, lastly by means of quite a lot of analysis, we discovered that franchising, it’s an incredible alternative when you associate with the appropriate folks, proper? In case you associate with the appropriate franchisees, and in the appropriate areas, and do your analysis on the situation. So, that’s actually how we acquired into franchising.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (08:20):
Yeah. No, I respect that. And one thing you mentioned actually stood out as a result of it’s one thing quite a lot of our people that tune in, they’re rising franchisors or entrepreneurs which are perhaps pondering of increasing a technique, form, or kind, or one other, franchising is one in all them. And also you talked about one thing about with being licensed natural, it’s a excessive normal that you just’re attempting to uphold, particularly once you’re delivering this licensed natural product some place else across the nation that’s not near you, the place you possibly can’t simply pop in tomorrow and see what’s happening, and go look within the kitchen. In order that’s, I do know, a typical worry that I hear from quite a lot of people which are frightened about it. So, I suppose, are there any measures or issues that you just did to make you’re feeling snug, that you’d have these processes or controls in place?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (09:13):
Undoubtedly. I believe at the start, it begins with who’re your franchisees, proper? So, we actually undergo a fairly in depth vetting course of, attending to know them. I believe you can put something, any construction in place, but when somebody needs to cheat the system, they’re going to attempt to cheat the system. Proper? So, let’s associate with the individuals who don’t need to try this. Proper? And so, we get to spend so much of time upfront attending to know our franchisees. I nonetheless to today have conferences with them earlier than they signal their franchise settlement. I need to hear their coronary heart for the enterprise. I need to hear why they need to open a Clear Juice, and actually simply spend time attending to know them one-on-one, personally, as a result of I believe that any good enterprise partnership begins first with an incredible relationship.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (09:56):
And so, we spend that point upfront to get to know them. And in the event that they inform us issues like, “Yeah, we’re actually obsessed with wholesome dwelling. We’re obsessed with natural.” We all know that inherently, they’re going to most likely observe the appropriate steps and never attempt to cheat the system, proper? From there, there’s undoubtedly quite a lot of mechanisms in place, that we put into place round secret consumers, round audits, unannounced audits, issues like that. However earlier than you get there, you bought to ensure that there’s a course of and a process for the whole lot that you just do.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (10:29):
So typically, we’ve discovered that it’s not unwell intent, it’s that perhaps they simply had been attempting to do one thing that we simply hadn’t defined very effectively. Proper? And so, quite a lot of occasions it comes again to us to verify, hey, let’s be sure we put the appropriate course of, process into place, replace the operations guide in order that they know precisely what they’ll do, should do, to uphold the model requirements. And we’ve largely been very profitable with that.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (10:54):
Yeah. Nicely, and I believe additionally it says loads to you because the franchisor since you’re taking the effort and time to undergo that screening course of, and that’s half the battle of getting the appropriate folks in. After which, it feels like from what you simply mentioned, that after they arrive in and also you establish, issues change, methods change, processes, new folks are available and you discover some gaps or issues which are lacking. So, it sounds such as you had been additionally then stepping into and updating procedures and processes and being ready for these new issues that got here alongside and supporting these franchisees.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (11:32):
Yeah, completely. Completely. I believe, our duty as a franchisor is to repeatedly enhance the working system. And so, whether or not that’s the menus that we serve or how we do issues in our provide chain, operations guide, how issues are served. I imply, there’s simply so many issues that we now have to repeatedly enhance. And that’s simply a part of our promise, it’s a part of what we do. We all the time need to get higher.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (11:58):
Yeah. Yeah. And I resonate with that. We now have three core values at our firm. One among them is principally, steady enchancment and make it higher. What are we doing at the moment that should change for tomorrow? And so, I respect that. There’s quite a lot of effort that goes into it and making that occur. So, speak to us a bit bit about the way you grew, the place you’re proper now by way of approximate variety of places, and I’d like to speak about franchise quantity two and the way that happened.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (12:30):
Yeah. So, we opened our first location proper round six years in the past and at the moment we now have 105 places opened throughout the nation. We’re working in additional than 25 states. We’ve acquired one other 60-plus shops in improvement with Clear Juice, throughout the nation. So, it’s been superior. I’d say, how did we do it? I imply, I believe primary, you bought to have model, proper? You bought to have one thing that individuals need to purchase into. You bought to have one thing to folks like, whether or not that’s in meals or companies, it’s acquired to be distinctive. It’s acquired to have an incredible providing. It’s acquired to have financial mannequin to it. And it’s acquired to be one thing that’s fascinating. So, that’s primary.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (13:16):
And so, when you get these issues dialed in, then you can begin fascinated by franchising, however we’ve grown by means of franchising primarily. We personal 13 of these 105 places. So, roughly 10% of the shops which are on the market, we personal, which is an effective quantity, which is what we like, simply by way of what we are able to handle versus additionally managing the franchise portfolio. And yeah, I imply, we’re excited the place that model’s going to go, what we’re trying subsequent at, airport alternatives and faculty universities, issues like that, to get a few of these youthful guys desirous about well being and wellness. And that’s what they’re demanding anyway, they need more healthy stuff on campus. Yeah, that’s the subsequent path that we’re taking a look at, whereas in fact, rising the franchise enterprise. And yeah, in order that’s what we’re doing.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (14:07):
That’s superb. That’s superb. And it is sensible. I imply, I journey loads and once you’re within the airport there are only a few high quality selections so that you can buy. It’s principally a bottle of water and a pre-prepared salad or fruit or one thing, and that’s it.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (14:25):
Proper. Yeah. Every thing’s freshly made, proper? And it’s all utilizing licensed natural, really wholesome elements. So, we serve juices, we serve smoothies, acai bowls, freshly made salads, wraps, sandwiches, all with the very best elements. One among our core values right here at Clear Juice is, transparency is the important thing to belief. So, the whole lot that goes on our menu is what goes into the smoothie. And sadly, you don’t discover that actually with quite a lot of our rivals who’re on the market. We’re not going to let you know it’s a kale pineapple smoothie after which put 10 tablespoons of sugar in it. We don’t try this. In truth, we don’t use any sugar. And so, the whole lot that you just see up on the menu board is what you’re getting. And it’s fairly distinctive, but in addition it’s fairly dumbed down, and that’s how we prefer it.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (15:18):
Yeah. Yeah. Nicely, it’s an unbelievable story. You could have an superior model. You’ve been constructing this, you’re clearly on the pathway right here for a nationwide, worldwide model, being the chief in your house. And within the wings, or perhaps moonlighting right here, you’ve gotten this second model. So, speak about this second firm you’ve gotten beginning, that’s not within the meals enterprise, and so I’m . Inform us about that.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (15:44):
Yeah. Nicely, it’s a few issues that I like. Primary, franchising, proper? I believe it’s an incredible model. So, we purchased an idea after which we rebranded it to Freecoat. So, the idea had been in operation for about 5 years, but it surely’s solely just lately been Freecoat. We purchased it a couple of yr in the past. And the explanation why we love the idea is as a result of they’d simply began franchising, proper? So, that was constructed into place, however extra importantly, it’s a well being and wellness spin on the nail setting. And sadly, within the nail business, there’s a lot unhealthiness concerned in that service, simply with the toxins which are used on the paints, simply among the totally different ways in which in conventional nail salons, how they run the enterprise.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (16:28):
And so, we really feel like well being and wellness is the place persons are going. They’re not simply going there for meals, however they’re going there for companies, and taking a look at these totally different, distinctive alternatives to wash up various things of their life. They usually’re carrying these paints on their cuticles, on their fingernails, which are there for weeks, months. I imply, typically years, folks go each single two weeks to get recent paint on. And your nails may be among the most absorbent a part of your physique. And so, when you’re placing all of those paints on there which are laced with all these totally different chemical substances, what sort of impact is that having on you? Proper? After which additionally, the expertise once you stroll into a conventional nail salon, the very first thing you get hit with is that this odor of dying, it’s like this chemical wall.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (17:10):
And so, once you stroll into one in all our shops, you don’t odor that in any respect. It smells actually recent, actually clear. We now have medical grade filtration methods simply to maintain the air actually clear. None of our paints have many of the poisonous chemical substances which are in there, they’re all excluded. So, we now have a sure normal that we use. So, we simply actually need to clear up that business and we really feel prefer it’s an enormous alternative. The model is actually clear and handsome, and we predict it’s of at the moment’s shopper. So, we’re actually enthusiastic about that. We now have three places which are open now. We now have two extra which are going to open in a pair months, and we’re franchising from there. So, it’s been going effectively.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (17:50):
That’s thrilling. That’s actually, actually thrilling as you’re beginning this subsequent new enterprise. Nicely, it looks as if Clear Juice is on this pathway of actually quick progress. It’s hitting that time the place you possibly can actually begin exploding, that you just’ve acquired the items in place. And now, this new model developing, it’s thrilling. Nicely, Landon, I’d love to leap into the format for the present, whereas we’ve acquired you within the scorching seat, we ask each visitor earlier than they go, the identical 4 questions. So, the primary query we wish to ask is a couple of miss or two that perhaps occurred alongside the best way and what you discovered from it?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (18:25):
I believe, it’s an incredible query and I believe it’s broad on goal, proper? I may sit right here and speak to you about enterprise misses all day, however I believe that for anyone who’s listening, the largest misses in our life that we are able to be taught from, are those within ourselves and those that we take care of personally. And so, I really feel just like the occasions in my life the place I’ve had probably the most success is the place I’ve been probably the most self-aware. And so, after I’ve struggled with sure issues, like in my 20s, I used to be partying an excessive amount of, focusing an excessive amount of on enjoyable versus play versus my profession. After I was capable of take a step again and have a look at who I used to be and who I actually needed to be and the way these issues weren’t actually aligning very effectively, I used to be capable of make change.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (19:09):
And so, I believe that typically we undergo life and we’re performing in a sure method, however perhaps we don’t even understand it. However for these of us who can take that step again and say, “No, I would like higher for myself, and I’m prepared to take these laborious truths on, hey, that is going effectively, or this isn’t. And I must make some modifications if I actually need to be the very best model of myself.” And so, I needed to undergo that and I’ve been by means of that. And so, I’d not be right here at the moment if had I not addressed a few of these issues that I used to be coping with.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (19:41):
Yeah. Yeah. I completely relate there. And the way about on the opposite finish of issues, a make or two alongside the best way? You’ve had fairly a various background and profession with the totally different, actually, profession factors you’ve had. So, I’d love so that you can share a couple of make alongside the best way.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (19:58):
Nicely, I imply, clearly with Clear Juice, simply the truth that the model is what it’s at the moment, is a giant make, however I’d say extra of how we acquired began on the make is, we needed to take a threat, proper? And so, I believe so many occasions in life we’re introduced with totally different alternatives and quite a lot of occasions we’re going to overlook out on one thing, simply out of worry. And plenty of occasions in life, we make choices based mostly on worry and nothing else. And so, had I been scared to lose the couple hundred grand that I used to be going to place into the primary location, we wouldn’t be right here at the moment. And so, I had individuals who advised me, “Don’t try this. That’s not an incredible concept. I don’t assume it’s going to work.”
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (20:35):
And so, quite a lot of occasions you simply acquired to actually pray, hearken to your intestine, take that threat. And quite a lot of occasions threat is seen as a unfavourable factor, and I don’t view it like that. I view it as a constructive factor. Had I not taken that threat to open Clear Juice and retailer primary, we wouldn’t be right here at the moment. And so, simply the truth that we did it, we took that threat, was a giant make for us and our household.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (21:00):
Yeah. Yeah. And what a couple of multiplier? You’re within the franchising enterprise, in order that’s definitely a pure multiplier, however something that stands out to you, that you just and Kat have used as you’ve expanded the enterprise?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (21:15):
Yeah. So, we talked in regards to the model, we’ve talked about franchising, the third leg to the stool that we haven’t talked about but, is folks. And so, you don’t get to multiply a enterprise with out folks. I may solely take Clear Juice to at least one, perhaps two shops on my own, if I’m simply working them. So, you want an incredible staff, you want an incredible folks. And actually, I couldn’t have ran the primary retailer and not using a nice staff working within the retailer. And so, you’ve acquired to have a imaginative and prescient, you bought to have goal, you bought to have focus, however when you’re not constructing folks and creating folks alongside the best way, it’s by no means going to be what it may very well be.
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (21:50):
I’ve to belief folks to do a a lot better job than I may do of their sure roles that they’ve now, right here at Clear Juice, and had I not given up that belief, had I not poured into folks, we wouldn’t be right here. And I’ve individuals who began with me once we very first began they usually’re nonetheless right here they usually’re nonetheless doing a incredible job. So, folks improvement might be the largest factor.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (22:15):
Attention-grabbing. Nicely, I respect that. And I believe you’re proper. We’ve heard an analogous response from different visitors as they’ve come on the present. And I’m simply curious, is there something particularly that as you concentrate on the nice folks which were round you, I’m simply pondering out loud right here, however is there something particularly that you just felt such as you’ve finished by way of serving to develop or develop these folks, or practice or help them? Is there something particularly that you just’ve felt like stood out in retaining these folks on board?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (22:43):
Yeah. I’d undoubtedly say there must be some like-mindedness, there must be shared values. And so, for us, it’s fairly straightforward to see what our core values are. And so, we speak about what our core values are. I imply, they’re no secret, they’re up on our workplace, they’re up on our web site. Individuals can see what our core values are. And so, I believe that when folks align there, and once you get to know anyone, the largest, I believe, limiting issue will not be the data that they’ve, however their willingness to develop. And so, in the event that they’re prepared to be taught and if I’m prepared to show and if I’m prepared to be taught, then it’s most likely going to be an incredible relationship. And so, angle is the whole lot. So, discovering the appropriate folks, with the appropriate angle, with the appropriate imaginative and prescient behind your mission, is what it’s all about.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (23:31):
Yeah. Yeah. Nicely, and the ultimate query, Landon, is what does success imply to you?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (23:38):
That’s an incredible one. It’s one I’ve thought loads about. I may say quite a lot of issues, however I believe for me, success personally, is am I capable of obtain the fullest model of myself by means of God, who God meant me to be? And if I’m in a position to do this, if I’m capable of reside my fullest life based mostly on the items that I’ve been given, that’s success to me.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (24:04):
As we convey this to an in depth, is there something that you just had been hoping to share or get throughout that perhaps you haven’t had an opportunity to say but?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (24:14):
No. I believe you’ve requested some actually nice questions. Clearly, we’re actually enthusiastic about what we’re doing within the well being and wellness house and the franchising house. Simply can verify us out at cleanjuice.com and freecoatnails.com. I imply, we’re throughout Instagram and also you Google Clear Juice, you’ll discover us.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (24:31):
Nicely, you answered my final query, which was, how can folks get in contact with you in the event that they’re desirous about studying extra?
Landon Eckles, Clear Juice & Freecoat Nails (24:37):
Yeah. So, for me personally, I’m most lively on LinkedIn, so that you’ll be capable of discover me on there.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (24:43):
Landon, thanks a lot for being a visitor on the episode at the moment. And let’s go forward and bounce into at the moment’s three key takeaways. So, takeaway primary is, like-mindedness and discovering franchisees with like-mindedness. And he talked about how this concept of like-mindedness has been a key to his success find franchisees who need to do the appropriate factor once they’re working their enterprise, and even simply the employees operating their firm on places. That’s been a very necessary element for them.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (25:15):
Takeaway quantity two is, belief your intestine. And I like how he talked about when, how Kat mentioned that in the event that they purchased one of many franchises they had been seeking to purchase initially, that she would by no means eat there. And so, that’s once they determined to begin Clear Juice. And I assumed that was an incredible takeaway as a result of they instinctively mentioned, “You understand what? I believe we’re going to go on this chance.” It simply didn’t really feel proper. It wasn’t the appropriate method to go.
Tom DuFore, Massive Sky Franchise Workforce (25:42):
And the third key takeaway is that they’re targeted on repeatedly enhancing. Their job as a franchisor is to repeatedly enhance methods, processes, advertising and marketing. The brand new addition now of them bringing Tim Tebow into the operation and as a model ambassador, simply issues to repeatedly enhance.
