CBS New York Interviews Planet Smoothie Franchisees

Stress prevention leads distinguished news team to a Planet Smoothie franchise to help encourage active, healthy lifestyles

To help Americans find ways to make healthier lifestyle choices, CBS New York visited Planet Smoothie franchise owners Estelle and Dale Williams as part of their coverage of National Stress Awareness Month. Stress is a well-known cause of poor lifestyle habits that can lead to disease, according to the Yale Stress Center, and because Americans work longer hours than any other developed country, it is no surprise that Americans experience more stress.

At Planet Smoothie, we are known for our healthier ingredients and for our proprietary sweeteners and supplements. We use real fruits and vegetables in our smoothies, and we also have our own line of proprietary supplements to provide more vitamins, boost protein, accelerate fat burning, improve alertness and help customers achieve their goals. We offer the best-tasting smoothies on the planet, and our franchise owners have helped thousands of customers learn that “healthy” can also be “tasty.”

Our great-tasting smoothies help keep people healthy and stress-free

The CBS coverage highlighted the mindset of our growing base of customers, 50% of whom visit our Planet Smoothie franchise locations at least once a week. Our smoothies can help reduce stress levels and help facilitate healthier and happier lifestyles.

“As we clean out of our closets, it’s certainly a great time to start cleaning out our bodies, too,” Estelle says to CBS’s Diane Macedo in the interview. “So you want to incorporate as many fruits and vegetables as you can.”

A terrific way to get all of your vitamins


Smoothies have gone mainstream in the past 20 years, and the teens who discovered Planet Smoothie in the 1990s continue to come and bring their kids. The demographics of smoothie customers are evolving and bringing more potential customers every year.

The CBS New York coverage highlighted the fact that our smoothies are designed to provide our customers with all of their vitamins and nutrients, because we know that our customers often choose our product as a meal replacement. Our popular Passionate Blues, Mango Passion, and Cherry Chia Chiller smoothies were featured by CBS New York as excellent examples of how to get a vitamin boost.

“You can get all your vitamin C, all your vitamin A, all your antioxidants all at once,” Estelle says.
