Froots is a franchise for a juice bars. It was founded in 2001 and started franchising in 2004.
It was founded by David Lopez when he was still business college student. He said that he needed to have an experience in the real world business. He asked for advices from friends and family in finding an industry that have yet to have a leader and is still emerging. He researched on smoothies and found out that it is a big industry but they don’t have a leader yet. With the American’s growing concern on their health, he realized that this is the industry that he wants to get into. He went on researching on smoothies. Studied what he wanted and did not want about how each is run up to the ingredients that each of them used. Through this process, he was already imagining what and how he wanted Froots to become. They now have 30 locations in the United States and 12 locations in other countries.
