Smoothie Factory Franchise Opportunity
“I saw at an early age that we could do things much better in the smoothie business. I had researched the industry as a school project in the hotel and restaurant management program when I was a student at the University of Houston. There were a lot of mom-and-pop shops at the time. And they were using a lot of concentrates and purees. I was also a member of the 1992 Olympic Taekwondo team in Barcelona, and that was the catalyst for it all. I wanted something better after workouts; not the sugary stuff. We founded Smoothie Factory in 1996, and our customers recognized the quality of our ingredients from the very beginning. We started as a store operator, and we started franchising a year later. Today, with the best smoothies, value-priced nutritional supplements and fresh cold-squeezed juices, we have multiple revenue streams under one roof.
Franchising is pretty much all I’ve ever known. I actually started working at a smoothie franchise that was part of another chain when I was in college. I ended up becoming a franchise owner of that very same location. I sold it and invested in another frozen treat business by campus. And then, when the opportunity arose for me to invest in Smoothie Factory, I jumped on it. I knew from years of experience that this chain had the best product line and used the healthiest ingredients in the industry. Having a stake in that brand was incredibly appealing.

Smoothie Factory Franchise Advantages

Smoothie Factory Juice Bar franchise owners are uniquely poised to serve this growing market.
Smoothie Factory is an internationally-known smoothie and juice bar franchise with existing stores in the US, and international development throughout China, India, and Vietnam through our founder James Villasana & SF Inc. Founded in 1996 with an emphasis on owner-operator success, approximately 95% of all Smoothie Factory locations are operated by the owner. In 2013 Smoothie Holdings, LLC was acquired by BRIX Holdings, LLC of Dallas, Texas, an experienced franchise operating company and parent company of Red Mango and RedBrick Pizza. BRIX controls the Smoothie Factory franchising rights for the USA, Canada, Mexico, and South America.
When you own a Smoothie Factory it is more than just a juice and smoothie franchise. In addition to a full line of delicious smoothies and nutritional boosts, franchisees also benefit from offering fresh-squeezed juices, and health supplements (both private label and brand name). A Red Mango® co-branded frozen yogurt opportunity and expanded menu including wraps, flabread sandwiches, and salads is also possible. These varied product offerings not only are intended to add revenue, they help differentiate your juice and smoothie franchise from competitors. Instead of a single business, you're getting four in one!
Smoothie Factory® Juice Bar stands alone in the industry for superior products in four categories.
Founded in 1996 by former Olympian James Villasana, Smoothie Factory Juice Bar features only the best products with the highest quality ingredients. Smoothies are freshly-made with real fruit, and contain no syrups, no concentrates and no purees. Fresh, cold-squeezed juices are freshly-made with fruits and vegetables. They are then immediately cooled, bottled and served with a tamper/air-proof lid at our stylish juice bar.
Smoothies are a proven global industry, matching consumer demand with a healthful treat. And the opportunity to grow continues.
Fresh, cold-squeezed juices offer huge growth potential and are a perfect complement to the smoothie business.
