5 Reasons to Join the Planet Smoothie Franchise
Why do franchisees love the Planet Smoothie franchise?
The smoothie industry is booming, and it’s easy to see why. Americans are eager to find healthier dining options, and they also want convenient choices that taste great. Smoothies deliver all of that.
What makes us stand out among smoothie franchises? Here are five reasons franchisees invest in Planet Smoothie:
Smoothies are seen as a healthy food, but not all smoothies are created equal. Our smoothies tend to be lower-calorie and contain less sugar than similar products from competing brands. How? We’ve developed our own proprietary sweetener that uses agave nectar and stevia to provide sweetness. We also offer healthy greens and nutritional supplements that can be added to smoothies to help nourish our customers. If you are considering smoothie franchises, we encourage you to take a look at our nutritional information and compare it with similar items offered by other brands.
It’s the best-tasting smoothie on the planet
Quick quiz: What’s the healthiest food in the world? Answer: The healthy option that people will actually eat. Americans want healthier food, but they still want convenient food that tastes great. Planet Smoothie pays just as much attention to flavor as we do to nutrition. We make healthier choices a treat instead of a chore.
Our management team listens and executes
We are led by a team of veteran franchise executives who have helped build other iconic brands, including Mail Boxes Etc. They invested in Planet Smoothie in 2011 because they saw an opportunity to expand nationwide and bring Planet Smoothie’s healthier menu items to more people. The management team has been busy improving supply chains and introducing innovations within Planet Smoothie, which has helped our franchise owners connect with even more customers nationwide. One of our key strategies for innovation is listening to our franchisees. We know that great ideas often start at the front counter of a local store, and we seek ideas and share best practices.
The business model is simple and efficient
We are focused on one thing: smoothies. Many smoothie franchises dabble in a wide range of food options, which can rapidly make the business much more complicated. One of the things that makes Planet Smoothie a great business opportunity is that it is a very lean operation. You don’t need a large staff to run a Planet Smoothie, training is simple, and spoilage is a non-issue.
Planet Smoothie builds a strong community
Planet Smoothie stores have a lot of high-frequency customers. Some customers stop in every day; a few stop in multiple times a day. Franchisees get to know them, know their kids and parents and know their orders. It’s a happy environment. Customers are almost always happy to be enjoying a healthier treat, or happy to be treating their bodies well by having a smoothie instead of a cheeseburger. Smiles abound.
