Planet Smoothie Franchises Can Be A Natural For The Multi-Unit Minded

A popular smoothie destination is a good fit in many different types of locations, making Planet Smoothie the right plan for growth-oriented owners

Busy outdoor malls. Bustling train stations. High-end office tower lobbies. All these locations, and many more, have proven to be great sites for a Planet Smoothie franchise. And that versatility means that many Planet Smoothie franchise owners have started with a single location and quickly branched out.

“When they come to their training, new Planet Smoothie franchise owners are excited and eager to build their business,” says Doug Merenda, Director of Franchise Development. “They are laser focused on that store, which makes perfect sense. What many don’t realize until they are up and running is just how scalable this business model is.”

Owning multiple unitscan be a sound business plan 

As an example, 1851 Franchise recently ran an interview with super-franchise owner Dustin King, who at only 33 years old is already operating multiple brands, including Planet Smoothie. A third-generation franchise owner, King says that he looks for the ability to win multiple units when he is considering a brand.  

“There needs to be growth opportunities with the franchisor, but there also needs to be an incentive,” he said in the interview. “Ask yourself important questions like, ‘How are they nimble? How do they pivot when they need to? And how can you be successful with that brand?’”

Flexible footprint means true location versatility

Obviously, Planet Smoothie franchise owners have found those answers to be ‘yes,’ says Merenda, noting that Planet Smoothie has multi-unit operators in markets all across the United States. 

“Many Planet Smoothie franchise owners come in with an eye toward multiple sites, and they very wisely make sure that the first store is up and running properly first,” he explains. “Once that is happening, they often have ideas for a second, or even third, location and the Kahala Brands™ team is there for them, helping to make that happen.”

Planet Smoothie is a smoothie franchise that sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies that use healthier, natural ingredients.
