Actress & Mom Opens Pennsylvania Planet Smoothie Franchise
Many entrepreneurs see small-business ownership as a natural extension of creative endeavors, mentoring efforts and other activities they love
It would be easy to say that Planet Smoothie franchise owners are great at business, and it would be true. It’s also just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what these talented entrepreneurs can do.
For instance, take Sherrell Oliver-Riley, who opened her Planet Smoothie franchise location in Horsham, Pennsylvania, last spring. Oliver-Riley is an actress who has appeared on several television shows, and also is a mother of two.
Franchise owner eager to engage with community
In speaking with local media, Oliver-Riley said that Planet Smoothie was a great opportunity for her not to just stretch her creative wings, but also to own a business serving up a product that she and her family love.
“I chose to open a Planet Smoothie not only because I love the product, but as a mom on the go I am committed to bringing both convenient and healthy options to families in the area,” she said. “I’m really excited to get this store open, and I’m ready for what could be the most significant role of my career.”
Easy to operate business model spurs growth
That kind of enthusiasm is common among Planet Smoothie franchise owners. Why? Because it’s a fun business to own and operate, and one that can be easy to learn and not overwhelming, says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
“If someone can operate a blender, they have mastered the equipment at Planet Smoothie,” Wuycheck says. “And the experienced training and support team makes learning the rest of the business just as uncomplicated. People are drawn to Planet Smoothie because they know and love the product, and when they find out that owning a franchise is much less complicated than other food-service concepts, they are eager to put their entrepreneurial skills to work and build a valuable business asset for themselves.”
