Planet Smoothie Franchises Are Great For First Time Business Owners
Low entry costs, flexible options for size and location, and plenty of training and support help first time business owners get up and running quickly and easily
Many people are ready and eager to own their own business, but are afraid that the process of getting from idea to opening day will be too complicated. That’s never been an issue for a Planet Smoothie® franchise owner.
Planet Smoothie is a rapidly growing brand in the booming smoothie industry for many reasons. Low entry costs allow entrepreneurs to launch a business affordably, for instance. And because a Planet Smoothie franchise can be placed in a standalone building, a shopping mall, or even a train station, convenience store or kiosk, it’s an adaptable model.
Size and scope is up to owners
“One of the reasons more people are looking at a Planet Smoothie franchise as their path to business ownership is because of the dynamic opportunities it presents,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “Some franchise brands require a specific footprint in terms of business size, as well as location. The Planet Smoothie franchise model is much more flexible, because franchise owners know their communities, and they know where the best locations can be found.”
And because a Planet Smoothie franchise can be scaled up or down, a first-time owner also knows that he or she can adapt as the business takes off.
“Someone might want to open a kiosk in a busy office building, because that’s all they think they can manage,” John explains. “A few months later, an opening might come up in a nearby food court, or a new mall that’s being built. Planet Smoothie makes the process of relocation, or expansion, very easy and efficient.”
Ongoing training is just part of support
Planet Smoothie franchise owners also know they will get industry-leading training and support, not just before opening, but throughout those crucial early days and weeks — and beyond.
“Even if you’re a seasoned entrepreneur, opening a new business has a lot of twists and turns,” John says. “A first-time owner has a lot of questions. We are here to answer those, and to make sure they get off on the right foot. That means help with financing if they need it, as well as custom-designed training for them and their employees. Then we’re available after opening either through the corporate training team, or through area developers if they are in a market where Planet Smoothie has a significant presence already.”
Planet Smoothie is a smoothie franchise that sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies that use healthier, natural ingredients. In a side-by-side comparison, Planet Smoothie smoothies generally have less sugar and fewer calories — a big competitive advantage as Americans actively seek out healthier options. Planet Smoothie is led by a veteran franchise team and dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands family.
