Main Squeeze juice and smoothie bar plans second restaurant in Jacksonville
A Nassau County son and father are working on opening their second organic and vegan juice and smoothie bar following the success of their first cafe in Jacksonville Beach.
Co-owners Spencer Turner and her father, Ronald, plan to open their newest Main Squeeze Juice Co. franchise at 13546 Beach Blvd. at the Hodges Pointe Plaza shopping center in the Beach Haven area of Jacksonville.
The Turners hope to open by the first quarter of 2023. Overall, they plan to open a total of 10 Main Squeeze juice bars in Jacksonville as well as neighboring Clay, Nassau, and St. Johns over the next few years.
Last August, they opened the first Main Sqeeze in Florida at 544 Marsh Landing Parkway in Jacksonville Beach.
“We fell in love with the Main Squeeze concept and the opportunity to bring its nutritionist-designed superfood-centric menu to the Jacksonville area,” Spencer Turner said in a press release announcing their plans.

Based in New Orleans, Main Squeeze Juice Co. is a fast-casual, natural juice and smoothie bar with a motto and mission of “Making Health Easier,” according to the company’s website.
Main Squeeze says its menu offerings are rooted in fresh, raw cold-pressed juices made daily with two to four pounds of whole fruits and vegetables in each bottle.
The gluten-free and vegan menu was designed by nutritionists, according to the company.
In addition to juices and smoothies, Main Squeeze also offers acai bowls made with organic, wild-harvested acai berries from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
Main Squeeze Juice Co. was founded in 2016 and started the franchise in August 2017.
The company currently has 25 locations open in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Florida. Main Squeeze plans to open more than 60 additional franchises and company-owned juice bars in the Southeast and Midwest over the next few years, the company said in the press release.
