Planet Smoothie Franchise Can Be a Great Year-Round Business
Americans looking for healthier food options are turning to smoothies to help maintain diet, stay in shape and protect their immune systems
After months of being cooped up at home, Americans are obsessed with their health and well-being now more than ever. According to the International Food Information Council’s 2020 Food & Health Survey, 32% of Americans are snacking more, while 85% of respondents have made at least some change in the food they eat or how they prepare it because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fortunately, smoothies are perfect for year-round consumption and are a convenient, healthier way to help boost your intake of fruits and vegetables, serving as meal replacements, post-workout nutrition, snacks and more. Even better, the most nutritious smoothies utilize whole foods, contain little or no added sugar and include a balanced amount of nutrients.
This is where Planet Smoothie® franchise owners outshine the competition. For almost three decades our exciting smoothie franchise has earned a reputation for using real fruit and whole foods to provide our customers with “the best tasting smoothie on the planet.”® As a result, we have grown to more than 140 locations across the country by meeting consumers’ needs for ingredient transparency and healthy alternatives — and the demand for smoothies is only increasing.
“We get people from the gym, people after surgeries, people who just come in here and say, ‘Hey, I want to lose weight. What should I order? Show me what to do,’” says Ryan DeWitt, a Planet Smoothie franchise owner in Kilmore, Florida. “You’re almost like a personal nutritionist. Planet Smoothie’s mission is to make every guest’s day better, so if a customer comes in and wants to do better, and you’re able to help them, it just makes you feel like you’ve done something for that guest.”
