Coming to Trinity: Clean Juice

10 May

Clean Juice is coming to The Villages at Mitchell Ranch in Trinity. If you’re not familiar with the Clean Juice brand, here’s an except from their website:

Clean Juice is in a league of its own. Other juice bar franchises are out there, but only Clean Juice can claim USDA-certified organic status. Clean Juice is truly a nutrition and wellness franchise, not just a juice bar. Our products are the purest on earth containing no added sugars, not pesticides, and no antibiotics. Clean Juice is a unique franchise opportunity with limitless potential. We are always looking for passionate business partners to join us on our journey to a healthier world. We’ll get there together, with healthy, organic products!

Clean Juice® started in 2014 as the brainchild of Kat and Landon Eckles. Landon, after spending years traveling internationally, was ready for a career change and more time at home with his growing family. Kat had spent the better part of a decade making smoothies and juices at home and presented the idea of opening a juice bar in the Charlotte area. Landon and Kat quickly jumped into the idea with 100% motivation and heart. They moved to Lake Norman and opened their first location, Birkdale Village, on their 8th wedding anniversary, June 5th, 2015. After just one year of business Clean Juice began franchising becoming the only 100% USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise available. Choosing to become USDA-certified organic and focusing intensely on kindness and gratitude with their guest experience.

This will be the first Clean Juice location in the Pasco County area and will open it’s Trinity location in the coming months.

We will provide further information as it becomes available.

Trinity in the News: Big things in store in Trinity

16 Jan

The walls are now going up for what will be a Michaels store, one of the anchor tenants in The Village at Mitchell Ranch.
TRINITY — As long as they don’t mind a little noise and a little dust, those who pass by the crossing of State Road 54 and Little Road are in store for seven or eight months of watching the fast-paced evolution of a new shopping center.

The first phase of the ambitious and long-awaited project at the southwestern corner of that intersection, now known as The Village at Mitchell Ranch, has entered full-steam-ahead mode, with completion of most shops and restaurants slated for late July or early August. The 22-acre commercial portion of project is now not only seeing constant construction, but its tenant list is nearly full.

It is highlighted by commitments from anchor stores Michaels, HomeGoods and Sprouts Farmers Market ¬— the first unit of the Phoenix-based chain of organic food supermarkets to arrive in Pasco County.

Meanwhile, the smaller stores have quickly followed with commitments. Of the 165,000 square feet available, only 5,700 square feet of in-line storefront — connected to other stores — remains open and only two parcels on the exterior remain up for grabs. They are 0.79 acres along State Road 54 and 0.83 acres on Little Road, next to what is reserved for a future PDQ restaurant.

The sudden progress come on the heels of stagnation dating back to the concept’s unveiling in 2015.

“We love it,” Ryan Jonson, the manager of Steak ’n Shake on Little Road, across from the development, said. “We see this as a huge opportunity for more sales and everyone has been waiting and hoping to see something happen. Based on what I’ve heard, it has been worth waiting for.”

Here’s the rundown of what businesses are on board:

Retail and services

ULTA Beauty, Five Below, Sketchers, Hair Cuttery, Aspen Dental, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Organic Nail Bar, Spectrum, Cyclebar and Mattress One.

Dining

First Watch, Chipotle, Menchie’s, Jersey Mike’s Subs, PDQ, Blaze Pizza, Louis Pappas and Panda Express.

The walls are already going up where Michaels will sit, on the south end of the plot.

Landing the three large anchor stores was key to the quick turnaround.

“Typically, the smaller ones will follow and flank them and that’s exactly what happened here,” said Jenn Buonanotte, spokeswoman for The Shopping Center Group, the Tampa-based leasing advisor assisting Blackwater Real Estate, the developer of The Village at Mitchell Ranch. “We think there’s the perfect mix here of service providers, national names you’ll recognize, some local favorites, and some soft goods.”

She also credits the area’s continuing population explosion.

“That’s been the catalyst, going back to 2015,” she said. “It just took some time for it to all fall into place.”

Recent traffic studies show that nearly 119,000 consumers with an average household income of nearly $62,000 reside within five miles of The Village at Mitchell Ranch, with an average of nearly 150,000 vehicles traveling daily along State Route 54 and Little Road.

“Everyone has been very familiar with the viability of that market,” Buonanotte said of the area.

Blackwater also developed the Wal-Mart Supercenter in the northwestern corner of Little Road and S.R. 54 and Mitchell Ranch Plaza, in the southeastern corner.
