We Know What It Means To Be Supportive

Unlike other franchise support teams you’ll find, Nékter corporate support knows what our Franchise Owners need most…because we’re our own largest Franchise Owner! Over 40 Nékter locations are currently corporately-owned, meaning we have been in the trenches and know firsthand what it’s like to own and operate a Nékter Juice Bar. This intimate understanding of the day-to-day aspects of running a Nékter franchise, along with our “Franchise First” mentality, gives us a unique perspective that has allowed us to perfect our model and provide quick, effective support for all our Franchise Owners.

We recently shifted our model to put emphasis on providing support to Franchise Owners rather than focusing on corporate growth. We believe this makes us stronger as a company, since our Owners know they can depend on us to assist them with whatever they need, when they need it.
