Join the Health Food Movement in 2022

With 2021 in the rearview mirror, we’re looking ahead at what’s in store for health and wellness trends in the new year. Now more than ever, customers understand and are prioritizing the benefits of lifestyles that actively promote healthy choices.

Whether it’s an influx of New Year’s resolutions or those simply looking to boost their immunity for cold and flu season, Beyond Juicery + Eatery franchisees, offer nutrient-dense, high-demand menu items to serve their communities.

Here are some ways consumers are prioritizing their health and wellness in 2022 and what that means for health-focused fast-casual restaurant concepts like ours.


Making Health and Wellness Accessible

When our founders Mijo Alanis and Pam Vivio founded Beyond in 2005, they set out to fill a gap of health-food options in their community. With a commitment to providing healthy, on-the-go meal options, Beyond is on a mission to make health and wellness accessible to communities nationwide. 

In a chain of openings, we celebrated our monumental growth in 2021 with 14 openings and 12 signed agreements, solidifying our place as a leader in the healthy fast-casual food industry. To date, we have over 50 locations open or in development, and we’re not slowing down.

“It is truly amazing to see how fast Beyond Juicery + Eatery is growing, and I cannot envision a better time to franchise with our brand,” Alanis said. “Beyond is more than a restaurant; it’s a lifestyle; and we see this lifestyle having an impressive impact in new markets across the country with our diverse, healthy and fresh products.”


Consumer Interest in Immunity

As we move through the pandemic, customers recognize the importance of the nutritional benefits of their food choices. Specifically, today’s consumers are looking to boost their immune system with foods high in vitamins A, C, D and zinc.

At Beyond Juicery + Eatery, our “I Need a Hero” juice quickly became a best seller amid the pandemic. This juice is packed with elements like ginger, turmeric and zinc to help provide an extra boost. We saw a great opportunity to help essential workers by donating nearly 10,000 bottles to nearby hospitals. 

With a menu rich in nutritious foods—salads, juices, wraps and fresh fruit smoothies among them— we’re expanding to add açai bowls to the mix. This good-for-you blend of superfruits offers a number of nutritional benefits, customized with your favorite go-to toppings. 

Acai berries also have a pretty unique nutritional profile for a fruit. They are low in sugar and higher in antioxidants, protecting our cells from being vulnerable to viruses and bacteria. An acai bowl is suggested to improve cholesterol levels and has been implicated to have an anti-cancer effect, along with being linked to boost brain function.

No matter how today’s consumers define health and wellness, Beyond Juicery + Eatery will be here to effectively support each of our guests’ healthy lifestyles – in 2022 and beyond.
