Smoothie King Celebrates 1000th Store Milestone In New Hometown

Leading Smoothie Company Continues Growth Streak With Strong Financials And Unit Growth

August 27, 2018 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Smoothie King, the leading smoothie company setting new records for sales and franchise growth, celebrated the opening of its 1,000th store on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 1325 E. Belt Line Road in Richardson, Texas.

“This is an incredible milestone in our company’s history and in our journey to inspire people to live healthy and active lifestyles,” said Wan Kim, Smoothie King owner and CEO. “It’s even more special that we’ve reached this goal right here in our new home market and can celebrate with our neighbors and friends.”

The Richardson location, which is company owned, is a short drive from the company’s new corporate headquarters, located in Dallas. The company moved in June 2018 from Metairie, Louisiana.

The newly-opened 1000th store showcases a new stand-alone store design and a menu centered on Smoothie King’s Cleaner Blending recipes. Because consumers now demand transparency with their food more than ever, Smoothie King is focused on developing exclusive, proprietary Cleaner Blending recipes. This industry-leading innovation makes smoothies more nutritious with no added sugar, more fruits and veggies, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, while still serving delicious smoothies.

“2018 is a big year in our evolution,” said Kim. “We made the move to Dallas, made significant changes to our menu, ingredient list and restaurants, and now celebrate 1,000 locations. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to helping people live a healthy and active lifestyle.”

The company is on track to open more stores this year than any time in its history. In the first half of 2018, Smoothie King opened 49 locations, and it projects to open a total of 130 locations by year’s end. It was recently recognized as the top juice bar franchise by Entrepreneur magazine and is enjoying five years of consecutive same store sales growth.
