Smoothie King Franchise Overview
When I first looked into franchising, I didn’t want to go after just what’s popular or the latest trend. I wanted to get into business with a product that I actually use. My wife and I were sitting on our sofa and we realized there wasn’t a Smoothie King around where we lived. We would have to drive 40 minutes to the closest Smoothie King. This was a greatly underserved product in our area, a product that we liked and a great opportunity.
Our family is really into running, walking – we go to the gym. We like to do a lot of physical fitness activities together, and so we really like the idea that with this brand, it was actually going to support the lifestyle that we’re trying to lead. It really aligned with our values. And I really enjoy meeting people and telling them about something I personally love, which is the smoothies I drink every day.
