Meet The Owners Of Healthy Living Ventures and Your Instructors: Chanel Grant, Toya Evans and Lauren Williamson


This mother-daughter trio formed Healthy Living Ventures, LLC in 2015. The dynamic team was determined to bring healthy food options to their community and saw franchising as a way to do so. In October of 2016 they opened their first Tropical Smoothie Café in Bowie, MD and quickly surpassed the brand's average unit value (AUV) by nearly 30% and that store continues to grow at 20% comp sales growth year over year.  Since signing their first franchise deal in 2015, they have signed 4 additional franchise deals and are constantly looking for additional opportunities to take advantage of. Their second Tropical Smoothie Café location opened in May 2020 and their third location is in the final stages of build out. Additionally, the trio has joined as franchisees of Hand and Stone Massage and Facials and Choice Hotels. To Learn More Click Here


This trio's motto is "start before you're ready" and "never take no for an answer." It's that attitude that's led them from underfunded and counted out to owning and operating multiple units and brands.
