Planet Smoothie Franchises Natural Fit For Shopping Centers
Planet Smoothie is a strongly desired anchor tenant for indoor and outdoor shopping centers
Commercial property developers running shopping centers are always on the hunt for the right kind of tenant: one that is a well-respected, properly run business, and also a draw for customers, thus supporting the entire venue. A Planet Smoothie™ franchise is that tenant.
“With more than 25 years’ experience in all types of locations, Planet Smoothie has demonstrated its value to mall settings,” explains Doug Merenda, Director of Franchise Development. “A Planet Smoothie franchise provides a colorful, eye-catching attraction that can bring in visitors all day and evening, vs. just around mealtimes. That is a big plus.”
Planet Smoothie is a good tenant & neighbor
Another big factor in why developers love Planet Smoothie? It’s a brand with repeat business, as well as lots of new visitors. That kind of steady traffic can help lead to profitability for that franchise owner, all the while supplying potential customers.
“A Planet Smoothie patron may have come to the area just to visit the franchise location, and while there, decide to do some window shopping,” Merenda explains. “Businesses locate in these retail hubs so they can feed off each other, and Planet Smoothie is a perfect example of how that works.”
A ‘can’t miss’ color scheme also draws
Now add Planet Smoothie’s bright, attractive color scheme as another differentiator in the retail landscape. Its vibrant signage and interior draw the eye even from far away, generating interest.
“Commercial property owners want tenants who can telegraph their presence,” Merenda says. “They want businesses that are open and inviting, which brings in both foot traffic and also lures in people who are driving by. Every Planet Smoothie location has that kind of curb appeal. Passers-by know what a smoothie is, but they want to see what this business is all about. Once they do, they become regular customers, and that helps keep the whole retail-revisit cycle going.”
Planet Smoothie is a smoothie franchise that sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies that use healthier, natural ingredients.
