Former Navy Pilot and Mom of 5 Achieves Entrepreneur Goals with Robeks Franchise, First Location to Open in March
The destination for creatively crafted fresh smoothies, juices, and bowls, Robeks today announces the brand’s expansion to Denver with the completion of a 5-unit franchise development deal. The first location is now open in Parker.
“Denver’s focus on healthy living and local communities makes it an ideal destination target for Robeks expansion plans,” said David Rawnsley, president of Los Angeles-based Robeks. “In Angie Baker we have found the ideal franchise partner who loves the brand and is motivated to own and operate her own business.”
Angie Baker, the new Robeks franchisee, is a former Navy pilot and mom of five who has found her entrepreneurial dream as a Robeks franchisee.
“I’ve always wanted to own my own business and a franchise is a perfect way to go for me,” said Angie Baker, who was first introduced to Robeks while stationed at Miramar Marine Base in San Diego, CA. “In San Diego I fell in love with Robeks’ delicious juices and smoothies and 10 years later I’m excited to begin a new chapter as a Robeks franchisee.”
A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Baker transitioned to the Navy to fly P3 reconnaissance missions in the P3 Orion aircraft. After the Navy, she worked for Boeing as a geospatial technician. She plans to include her children in the business to help them learn business and leadership skills. Baker lives with her husband and children in Littleton.
Baker plans to open her five locations throughout Metro Denver with the first location at 12235 Pine Bluffs Way in Parker, one of the fastest growing towns in the US.
