Planet Smoothie Franchise Menu Attracts Consumers of All Ages
A varied menu filled with flavorful and healthier options attracts, and retains, repeat customers year round
A diverse and loyal repeat clientele is the hallmark of a Planet Smoothie franchise. Even better, that clientele is composed of customers, especially families, representing every age group — kids stopping in with their parents, teenagers dropping by after sports practice or parents picking up a protein-packed smoothie on the way home from the gym.
“Smoothies are enjoyed by adults and children alike, at varying times of day and for varying reasons. That creates a stream of all-day traffic, and that is good news for franchise owners,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
Adults and kids alike crave Planet Smoothie
Many adults, whether they’re parents or not, make a Planet Smoothie franchise part of their regular wellness routine. Some stop by for a meal replacement after a workout because we offer several protein options including our proprietary Planet Pro® Whey Protein. Several of our locations also offer delivery options — perfect for offices ordering in.
Young adults and kids also like Planet Smoothie, but for a simpler reason: smoothies taste good. Many Planet Smoothie franchise locations are near or part of high school campuses and universities, making them favorite hangouts between classes or after the school day ends.
Dedicated R&D process ensures our products stand out
At Planet Smoothie we’re continually trying to make our already fantastic products even better. New ideas are always in the works in our test kitchen, thanks to constant input from Planet Smoothie franchise owners and, of course, customers.
“Customers tell Planet Smoothie franchise owners what they want to enjoy, and that information makes its way to R&D test kitchen,” Wuycheck explains. “At the same time, a continual testing process is underway so seasonal specials and new smoothies can make regular appearances on the menu board. This is a major way that Planet Smoothie is able to build and keep market share.”
Our summer 2018 LTO Destination Hydration coconut water smoothies appealed to both young people and adults. And this fall we have released a featured smoothie in partnership with the new animated adventure, Smallfoot.
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.
