CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tim Tebow has a new title: spokesperson for a Charlotte-based juice bar franchise.

Clean Juice made the announcement Tuesday, announcing the pro football player and philanthropist is now part of the brand's first-ever national TV ad. The company says the new partnership is the perfect alignment of their core values focusing on healthy living with a focus on providing healthier food and drink options.

The two-time NCAA national champion and Heisman Trophy winner won't just be seen on TV for the stores either; he'll also make appearances on the brand's social media, website, and point-of-purchase materials product development.

“Tim Tebow’s natural authenticity, inspiring reputation, commitment to healthy living, and unwavering faith is the perfect embodiment of the personal and professional values we hold dear at Clean Juice,” said Landon Eckles, CEO of Clean Juice. “We are truly blessed that Tebow has chosen to stand side-by-side with Clean Juice in becoming the face of the brand’s continued mission and vision of being healthy in body and strong in spirit. The entire Clean Juice family is blessed to work with Tebow.”

“I'm very excited to be partnering with Clean Juice and to offer something that is truly clean and healthy,” said Tebow. “The biggest thing about Clean Juice over everything else is that you can trust the product and brand. There aren’t a lot of products that are transparent about what is in your food.”

Landon Eckles and his wife, Kat, founded Clean Juice in 2016. They claim to be the first and only national USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise. The Eckles family cites 3rd John 1-2 from the Christian Bible as the ideals they are rooted in, specifically ensuring they promote a "healthy body and a strong spirit" as noted in scripture. Clean Juice franchises offer cold-pressed juices, smoothies, wraps, toasts, and more healthy options.
