After starting a new family business venture, Todd decides to place Chase and Savannah at the helm. As the new faces of the Chrisley Juice Bar franchise, the two siblings must handle the responsibility of running a business and keeping it afloat without bickering. All the while, Chase decides to take a break from college and reveals an opportunity that he thinks is better for his future. No matter how many elements of their lives are being pulled in various directions, the Chrisley Family will always support one another and find the time to come together for the moments that matter most.
