Jefferson Parish Pulse: Main Squeeze Juice Company

On this episode of the Jefferson Parish Pulse, we interview Jennifer Perkins and Andrew Blackwell, a sister-brother duo who co-own and operate multiple Main Squeeze Juice Co. franchise locations in the Greater New Orleans are. JEDCO provided Jennifer and Andrew with a JEDgrow Loan, giving them the financial backing they needed to open their first location in Metairie. Now, they’re running four locations with another one set to open later this year!

On the show, we talk about how Jennifer and Andrew got into the world of franchising, their best advice for entrepreneurs, and what it is like to work with JEDCO. Of course, they also answer the very important question regarding their favorite items on the Main Squeeze menu.
