The Smoothie King Difference: How We Stick Out Among the Rest
Since 1973, Smoothie King has evolved into the nation's #1 health and fitness smoothie brand. Since we started franchising in 1988, we've opened over 1,300 locations in 34 states across the U.S. and four countries.
With our better-for-you blends, our Clean Blends initiative, ease of operations, leadership, support and unique franchise profitability, Smoothie King stands strong among other quick service restaurants.
We're Dedicated to Franchisee Profitability
Our team isn't just here to assist you with opening a business; we're here to help you grow it. Our franchisees make it their mission to serve people in their communities while supporting one another, thanks to our broad leadership and support structure.
In 2021, Smoothie King set a new record for average unit volume (AUV) of $834,562 for the top 25% of franchised units in operation, as well as a first-time store-level EBITDA of 20% and we will continue to focus on assisting our franchisees to increase this. In total, our brand saw a 16.5% sales increase year-over-year domestically and opened 109 new stores globally.
We're Growing at Rapid Speed
In addition to excellent sales, we had record growth in 2021 which demonstrates our brand's objective of being a vital part of every health and fitness journey shared by guests and franchisees. Our steady and strong growth exemplifies the economic momentum driving community revitalization in the United States.
In addition, we were recently ranked No. 13 on the Franchise 500 list by Entrepreneur Magazine climbing six spots from last year.
