Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Korbinian Gerstl, Co-Founder of Frank Juice, located in München, Germany.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are the partner for a fresh and healthy lifestyle with a variety of innovative products and services. From your individual juice cleanse, to high-quality HPP juices, organic soups in a glass, to vegan protein. That is the frank way.

Our customers are people who are interested in a healthy lifestyle and like to do something good for themselves. The cleanses offer the perfect reset for newly set goals or simply as a retreat from everyday life.

Tell us about yourself

We (Korbinian & Daniel) started frank out of curiosity and a passion for creating something. We also fell in love with the innovative character of the product and that there was nothing comparable at that time (in the German market). Nowadays we want to improve our service and products every day and just try to be a little bit better than the last day.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Our biggest accomplishment is also one of the hardest things for us as business owners, which is building a great team.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Do something you love.
  2. 90% is showing up.
  3. Look for good/strong advice right from the beginning.

Where can people find you and your business?
