Smoothie King Continues Expansion with New Wichita Opening
Smoothie King, the world’s largest smoothie chain and the first health and fitness QSR brand of its kind, recently announced the opening of its newest corporate owned and operated location in Wichita, Kansas. This marks the brand’s fifth location in Greater Wichita and the brand’s 15th location in Kansas. Looking ahead, the smoothie chain will continue to grow its footprint across the state, with two additional locations projected to open in 2023.
The new store features a double drive-thru, indoor seating, and additional patio seating. The double-drive thru will help better meet evolving guest’s expectations and enhance speed of service. With a commitment to prototype innovation, Smoothie King is constantly seeking opportunities to better support franchisees through lower overhead and multiple revenue streams.
“We are excited to introduce yet another Smoothie King location to the ever-expanding Wichita market. Over the years, we’ve remained committed to helping Wichita residents on their fitness journey by offering fresh, healthy smoothies and are thrilled to see the support from this community which has kept momentum strong,” said Wan Kim, CEO and Chairman of the Board. “With a double drive-thru location, we’ll be able to fast track our services and provide a more convenient way of ordering for our guests. We are proud to continue our tradition of servicing this incredible, health-oriented community and look forward to welcoming new customers into our store.”
Ranked as one of the best franchise deals in the QSR industry largely due to its simple business model and flexible prototypes for traditional and non-traditional locations, Smoothie King is committed to being a leader within the smoothie category by remaining relevant and aligned with consumer trends and preferences. With a purpose-driven menu, Smoothie King guests can select smoothies based on their personal health and wellness goals.
Smoothie King is also known for its technology especially as it relates to managing product supply chain, keeping overhead low for franchisees, and implementing easy to manage operational systems. Smoothie King stores consist of a basic buildout and low labor requirements, which supports entrepreneurs in delivering on quality and customer service.
Smoothie King is actively recruiting new and existing franchisees to join their aggressive nationwide expansion over the next few years with their sights set on Baltimore, Washington D.C., Charlotte, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, New York, and more. From experienced franchise owners looking to add to their portfolio to fitness enthusiasts inspired by the brand’s mission and vision, Smoothie King presents a smart investment opportunity in markets across the country.
