Newly married, traveling the world, and learning more about himself every day, Brett Henry was in Hawaii looking for a job in the biology field when he stumbled upon his passion for health. Not long after, Franklin Juice Company was born. While in Hawaii, Brett found a job serving up a new and different healthy frozen treat. The local tropical hotspot called them, açaí bowls (pronounced “ah-sigh-EE”) and Brett knew he was onto something special. He wasn’t just infatuated with the taste of this yummy delicacy, he knew that these bowls reaped monumental health benefits and his wheels began turning to find a way to bring this unique delight to middle of Tennessee. Brett is a 7 th generation resident of Williamson County and even after his travels to Hawaii and Israel, Brett knew Franklin would always be home. He wanted to bring the culture and life that he treasured from his journeys right back to the heart of Franklin. “I was right in the middle of something special,” Brett commented, and with these fresh thoughts and big plans, Brett threw himself in the health food and beverage industry. There was no going back. He began to bulk up his juicing skills, pressing ultra organic fruits into delicious juices, and it wasn’t too long before a menu was born and Franklin Juice Company came into being. And while juice was the company’s bread and butter, people really went crazy for his “secret Hawaiian menu.” Brett’s favorite catchphrase caught on quickly with Williamson County’s favorite new sweet treat, and as he always says, “you are what you eat.”
Through all this, Brett admits all he did was show up. He showed up every day to work and made these yummy bowls. He showed up and he paid attention. He began to notice how locals craved them and tourists fell in love. He noticed that people weren’t coming in for an after-dinner treat, but to actually replace a heavy meal. In Brett’s own words, “We want Williamson Co. to be known as one of the happiest, healthiest places to live in the world, and by offering healthy and entirely organic food and drink alternatives, we feel like we are doing our part.” Brett believes that it all starts on the farm, and Franklin Juice Company offers a wide selection of nutritious and organic meals for the community. There are so many things to try and learn at the #FJCO (as they are known on Instagram), and along with the Hawaiian açaí bowls and their always fresh pressed juice, they even offer juice cleanse guru guide and a mobile juice truck (whom they lovingly named, Harvey). These folks are ready to roll through Franklin with healthy choices for you, wherever and whenever you might need them.
