Planet Smoothie Franchise is a Great Choice for Veterans
Our smoothie franchise provides great incentives for former military service members
Today’s franchise opportunities represent an excellent career path for retired military personnel — and Planet Smoothie is no exception. According to Franchise Solutions, veterans own 9% of all U.S. businesses, and those businesses account for $1.2 trillion of goods sold in the economy.
Planet Smoothie acknowledges the contributions military veterans make for our country and our communities, and we recognize that veterans are a select group of people with the motivation and discipline required to succeed at franchise ownership.
As an incentive to military veterans and a way to say “thank you,” the Planet Smoothie franchise is giving 20% off franchise fees to veteran franchise owners. This is excellent news for military veterans who have considered teaming with Planet Smoothie in the past.
“We love to help former military veterans achieve their dreams of franchise ownership,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for Planet Smoothie. “The Planet Smoothie franchise is an excellent choice for veterans, thanks to their eagerness and discipline, as well as our franchise’s accessible business model and extensive training and support.”
Smoothie franchise has proven business model, history of growth
Franchise Direct, America’s No. 1 franchise directory, recently placed Planet Smoothie on their list of “Franchises and Business Opportunities for Veterans,” based on our company’s strengths in the following areas of leadership:

- TRAINING – Franchisees receive comprehensive training at Planet Smoothie University and at our flagship location, followed by on-site training in your store prior to opening, and a variety of learning programs.
- MARKETING SUPPORT – Our marketing team provides guidance and high-quality marketing materials to support your store opening and ongoing local marketing efforts.
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, our 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.
Great news: We’re still growing in the $2.4 billion smoothie industry. Americans are hungry for healthy dining options, and Planet Smoothie answers that demand by offering healthy menu items that are both convenient and delicious. The demographics of smoothie customers are evolving, and we’re attracting more customers every year.
Our franchisees receive extensive training and support
One of the best things about being part of our franchise system: You aren’t alone in your business. You have the support of a veteran team of business executives, as well as other franchise owners who can offer advice and fellowship as you grow your store. All of our franchisees get ample training, ongoing coaching and operations manuals to help you master operations of your Planet Smoothie location.
“If I only had one store to provide income for my retirement, I would be ecstatic based on what I’m seeing from my first store,” says Michelle Williams, a Planet Smoothie franchise owner in Tucson, Arizona. “My customers are always asking us to open in more places, though, so we opened a second one and are working on No. 3. I think it’s our duty to continue to grow here in Tucson.”
