Planet Smoothie Ends First Quarter With Strong Growth

Increasing Volume Bodes Well for Remainder of 2016, Indicates Rising Interest in a Well-Known Brand With a Proven Track Record of Success

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - (Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - Planet Smoothie's efforts to ramp up franchise sales are proving to be successful, as reflected by solid first-quarter numbers for 2016.

"We are excited to have some good, organic growth happening," said John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. "For the first half of 2015, only five franchises were sold. We passed that number during the first quarter of 2016, and we have a lot of very solid candidates whom I believe will be on board very soon."

Planet Smoothie is led by a veteran franchise team and dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands family, which it joined in mid-2015. There are single- and multi-unit franchise opportunities available in prime territories across the nation -- in new territories as well as in well-established markets in the Southeast, and Florida in particular.

The Planet Smoothie franchise brand is benefiting from the many improvements made possible by being part of Kahala Brands. Those range from a more robust product testing and trial pipeline to improved support for franchise owners. As the franchise numbers show, there's also a lot of solid recruiting going on.

"We are working to grow the Planet Smoothie franchise opportunity in every way imaginable," Wuycheck said. "We want to provide our current franchise owners the opportunity to expand in their territories, and to that end we have worked with an ownership team in Atlanta to become an area developer. That's going to mean a lot of new growth in that market, both for those owners and for potential new franchise operators."

He added: "We are actively pursuing leads in many new cities and states. We are working with some new owners in Louisiana, for example, where they will be the first Planet Smoothie franchise in the state. That's really exciting for us."

Interest in owning a Planet Smoothie franchise has never been higher, as the U.S. economy continues to strengthen and entrepreneurs ramp up their explorations of new-business opportunities. When they reach out to Planet Smoothie, they hear a compelling story.

"We are a nationally known, trusted brand that is active in new markets and growing in existing ones," Wuycheck continued. "We offer industry-best backing in terms of marketing, system support and research and development. We offer a healthier product than our competitors, which is yet another way to differentiate in the market. There are many reasons why we are growing quickly, and we are excited to lay out the value behind each and every one of them to potential franchise owners."
