Small Businesses Make the

Biggest Impact on Communities

Small businesses are the backbone of every community. When our founders Mijo Alanis and Pam Vivio opened the first Beyond Juicery + Eatery in Birmingham, Michigan, they opened the doors to a community, with a goal to delight customers with our focus on fresh ingredients.


We love going above and beyond the expectations of your average neighborhood lunch spot. Beyond helps build stronger communities by connecting people with fresh, flavorful food and world class experiences that make you feel good. We value the neighborhoods we serve and give back to the communities that support our businesses. We are people who care about people.


Beyond franchise owners are small business owners who are pillars within their communities. They live and work in their hometowns and are constantly supporting local residents with opportunities for employment, fundraising, and more. With ownership that promotes strengthening local communities, franchising creates new businesses that bring new or enhanced products into local markets and add new services to local economies. 


After visiting a Beyond Juicery + Eatery restaurant in Michigan, Eric Engelke instantly fell in love and knew the business model was perfect for the Cleveland area. Since then, he has opened locations in Downtown Cleveland, Cleveland Uptown, Highland Heights, Mentor, Brecksville, Copley, Lakewood and Green. 


“It has been amazing to see the reaction from Cleveland residents and the city’s surrounding suburbs as we brought the Beyond Juicery + Eatery name to Ohio,” said Engelke. “We opened our first restaurant in July of 2020, and since then, the anticipation for our seven other locations to open has been greatly felt by the community. I had a connection to the Beyond Juicery + Eatery brand after just my first visit, and bringing its colorful vibe and amazing food to Ohio has been an exciting process.”


With 50 locations open or in development, we’re eager to expand with health-minded entrepreneurs ready to add Beyond to their community. Get started by inquiring about our franchise opportunities.
