High-profile areas are being targeted, including South Beach, Sunny Isles, Miami’s MiMo district, Boca Raton, and Weston. Additional locations in Miami and Miami Lakes will open in December with a location in Doral planned for early 2013.
Smoothie King, ranked #1 Juice Bar by Entrepreneur magazine for the past 19 years, offers more than 40 healthy, nutritional smoothies with real fruit, all-natural juices and a functional mix of vitamins and nutrients to fit every need or lifestyle.Trained team members help guests select the smoothie that’s right for them, whether they are looking to gain or lose weight, boost immunity, build muscle, or complement a workout. The meal-replacement drinks are categorized according to purpose; there is even a line of smoothies for children, Kids’ Kups, combining fruit juices, yogurt, protein powder, and multi-vitamin enhancers in child-appropriate proportions.
Each Smoothie King offers a wide variety of vitamins, diet products, sports nutrition, and healthy snacks in addition to their signature nutritional smoothies. Merchandising the additional products within the stores turns the juice bar into a one-stop destination serving all the nutritional needs of guests. This business model, operating two businesses in one, gives franchisees the potential for higher revenue. Wondering if a Smoothie King franchise is for you? The company’s executive team is hosting a Discovery Day in Miami on November 9 for potential future franchisees.
