THANK YOU, FUTURE 50!
We are so proud to have made it on Restaurant Business’s Future 50 List for the second time! This go-around, we landed in the top 5 fastest-growing restaurant concepts.
A huge shout out to our customers, fans, franchisees and supporters. We’re honored to serve communities across the U.S. and will continuously strive to Change Livez!
With this year’s Future 50 reveal, Restaurant Business also took special note of innovators in the food service industry that creatively and quickly adapted to meet dining demand during a global pandemic.
Rankings were determined by percentage change in system-wide sales from 2018 to 2019. To qualify, franchise and chain concepts had to hit annual sales between $20 – 50 million. They also had to have opened new units last year. In this time, the Clean Eatz franchise saw a Year-Over-Year Sales Change of 79.9%.
“We’re so excited to have made the Future 50 list again,” said Clean Eatz co-founder Evonne (Red) Varady. “We started this journey to help people of all walks of life find themselves through a balance of nutrition, education and support.”
One way Clean Eatz accomplished this in 2019-2020 was through its annual We Change Livez Challenge. This year’s WCL push had thousands of participants sharing their amazing stories of personal triumph. Ultimately, Jill and Shawn Fowler were awarded $25,000 for their inspiring efforts, with the top runners-up receiving all-expenses paid vacations to Wrightsville Beach, NC.
“Anytime someone like the Future 50 shines a spotlight on how your concept has made a connection with other people, it puts everything into perspective,” Varady said. “This listing isn’t about the growth of Clean Eatz at all… it’s a reflection of our customers’ passion to live a healthy lifestyle. We’re humbled to be by their sides.”
