August 25, 2014 // Franchising.com // Davie, Florida – Froots Smoothies, Salads, & Wraps has awarded its 3rd franchise of the 3rd quarter, and its sixth franchise in the State of Florida to John Persico, Froots announced today.
The signed agreement, targeting the Hollywood, Florida market is part of an aggressive national expansion plan calling for 50 new locations in the next two years. With 36 locations currently operating in 6 states and 13 foreign countries, and another 5 franchises already sold slated to open in the United States in the next three months, Froots is well on its way.
"It has been a tremendous year for us as we build on our brand's success and continue to grow throughout the United States and the rest of the world," said Scott Mortier, Chief Operating Officer of Froots. "We are excited about John joining our franchise family and look forward to helping him grow his business."
Froots is a healthy alternative to traditional fast food. At Froots you can indulge your appetite and your palate while keeping your commitment to staying healthy. Our luscious smoothies are made with fresh fruits and all natural ingredients, exactly the way you'd make them. Our fresh-squeezed juices have that just-picked goodness you crave and our gourmet wraps, paninis, salads and soups are abundant with flavorful meats, cheeses, veggies and other wholesome goodies to keep you going strong and smiling all day long.
"John will continue Froots’ market expansion in Florida. With his impressive professional background, and business savvy we couldn’t ask for a better partner in the Hollywood." Mortier added.
The difference between Froots and other smoothie concepts is that Froots is actually a quick service restaurant. We are not just a juice bar or a smoothie shop, we are a healthy food destination. Invariably, when we open a Froots in a new market, customers first visit our locations to "check out the new smoothie shop in town". But when they get inside and see wraps with unique flavor profiles like Wasabi Chicken and Kingston Jerk or gourmet salads like The Beef and Blue and Chinese Chicken, they quickly come to think of Froots as a healthy alternative to traditional fast food fare. Providing our customers with a full menu of healthy offerings is what defines and differentiates the Froots Smoothies brand.
