The smoothie franchise is expanding in Dallas and throughout North Texas. Ready to offer the best-tasting smoothies on the planet?
Demand is strong here in Dallas. Planet Smoothie is ready to greatly expand its number of stores by partnering with new franchisees throughout the city.
Healthier dining demand has helped make Planet Smoothie an attractive option for North Texas franchisees. With a focus on creating the best-tasting smoothies on the planet, while delivering better nutrition than the competition, Planet Smoothie’s products tend to have fewer calories and less sugar than comparable items offered by other smoothie brands. As Americans become more health-conscious, those differences are driving more customers to the Planet! One taste and they keep coming back for more.
Why Dallas is a great market for Planet Smoothie
The Star-Telegram in Fort Worth reported the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area ranked sixth in the nation with an economy that reached $440.1 billion. The newspaper also reported that the area outranked most countries in the world — only 17 of the world’s 196 nations have gross domestic products that top that number. The area’s economy is expected to reach $464.7 billion by 2015 and $491.4 billion by 2016, according to IHS Global insight, a Massachusetts-based information company. The increased economic muscle of the area is due in part to growing populations in the Dallas area with a booming real estate market.
There are millions of people in North Texas, and an increasing percentage of them are seeking convenient, healthier food options that a Dallas Planet Smoothie franchise can provide. With a proven track record of delivering what people want, now Planet Smoothie is committed to making their smoothies convenient to more consumers.
Here are some of the areas that are particularly promising, and where the Planet Smoothie team would like to help a franchisee get started:
- Flower Mound
- North Dallas
- Park Cities
Planet Smoothie sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies with healthier, natural ingredients. In a side-by-side comparison, our smoothies generally have less sugar and fewer calories — a big competitive advantage as Americans actively seek healthier options. We are led by a team of veteran franchise executives who have helped build other iconic brands, including Mail Boxes Etc., and we leverage more than 100 years of combined franchising experience to provide outstanding support to franchisees.
Meet Blair Ritchey

Blair brings leadership development and entrepreneurial experience to the Dallas smoothie franchise. As a Wesleyan minister, Blair oversaw the planting of churches throughout Texas beginning in 1985. Now as the area developer for North Texas, Blair would like to sign 20 Dallas smoothie franchisee commitments over the next three years.
“Planet Smoothie is a great brand with a great product,” Blair says. “Owning a Planet Smoothie franchise makes you part of a really effective team with the opportunity to build a profitable business that makes a positive contribution to a community.”
Blair says there are many vibrant, healthy communities in the Dallas area that are highly populated by health-conscious people with discretionary income.
“These are good locations for potential franchisees,” says Blair. “For franchisee candidates who are looking for opportunity, this is a great time to join Planet Smoothie. We have the territorial rights you simply can’t get with many of the other brands.”
