February 02, 2016 // Franchising.com // TRION, Ga. – Smart Spark Vape + Lounge, the nation’s first franchised vaping concept, is continuing its statewide expansion with the opening of its newest location in Summerville, Georgia.
The new shop opened on February 1 and is located at 10100 Commerce St. This marks the company’s fourth location in Northwest Georgia and is representing a larger expansion initiative that calls statewide presence. The company plans opening as many as 10 locations in the Greater Atlanta area over the next few years.
To stay one step ahead of the curve, Smart Spark will be the first vaping franchise to control the production of its e-liquids. The Summerville location will feature an AEMSA-certified “clean room,” which was built in anticipation of upcoming FDA standards that allows Smart Spark to mix e-liquids in a controlled environment on site, which also will allow the company to control the quality and consistency of the e-liquid products. The shop will also serve as a distribution center for all Smart Spark lounges.
“With vaping becoming a healthier and more popular alternative to smoking, the FDA is putting restrictions on on-site e-liquid preparation,” said Smart Spark founder Jeremy Kwaterski. “Our Summerville location is an introduction to the new era for Smart Spark as we push ahead of FDA recommendations and manufacture our e-liquids with an emphasis on the strictest standards.”
Kwaterski founded Smart Spark Vape + Lounge in early 2014 upon learning his father had contracted stage 4 lung cancer. He was looking for a healthier way to get his father to stop smoking while still getting the nicotine he craved. Unfortunately, Kwaterski was too late to offer his dad help, and he passed away in early 2015. In his dad’s honor, he has made a commitment to help as many people as possible kick the cigarette and chewing tobacco habit.
Today, Smart Spark has established itself as the first authentic franchise brand in the vapor industry. The lounges merge an upscale atmosphere with a vape shop retail component, where customers can relax while enjoying a wide selection of premium juice and mod products. All of the juices – from apple pie and strawberry shortcake to blue raspberry and various tobacco flavors, among others – are 100% American made and the option to mix and create their own flavors. Smart Spark’s inventory of vaporizers represents a higher standard compared to other vaporizers in the market by focusing on quality and effectiveness. Smart Spark lounges also offer various food and drink options, as well as entertainment including arcade games, pool tables, and juke boxes.
“We are excited to bring a smarter solution to smoking to the residents of Summerville,” said Kwaterski. “Making the decision to quit smoking can be a difficult journey for some, so we are proud to offer our customers the smartest e-liquids and vaping products on the market to facilitate their transition away from tobacco.”
Founded in 2014 by franchise industry veteran Jeremy Kwaterski, previous founder CPR Cell Phone Repair, Smart Spark Vape + Lounge is the first authentic franchise brand in the multi-billion dollar vapor industry, merging an upscale lounge atmosphere with a vape shop retail component. Having already opened three lounges in Georgia, Smart Spark launched its unique franchise opportunity in 2015 and plans to have a total of 150 locations nationwide in the next few years.
