Planet Smoothie Franchises Can Scale In Size & Number
Smoothie franchise owners can start with a single, small store and add new locations as well as larger stores to grow their engagement with the brand
Many entrepreneurs are eager to launch their own business — and also very cautious about not starting too big, too fast. A Planet Smoothie franchise is perfect for them thanks to the ability to start small and scale up in different ways.
“Planet Smoothie meets potential franchise owners where they are in terms of what they want from their business,” explains John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “They may want one store, or multiple units. They may want a small location, or something with a substantial footprint. All of those options, and everything in between, can be doable.”
Store size varies and provides options
“A new Planet Smoothie franchise owner may not want a full-size store,” Wuycheck points out. “They may want to open in a busy mall food court, or even a kiosk in a convenience store or office building. There are many different ways the Planet Smoothie layout can be customized to fit a location.”
That’s because a Planet Smoothie franchise doesn’t require a lot of storage space, and the equipment is limited to a freezer, fridge and the blenders used to make smoothies. What’s more, a smaller store has the ability to reduce its menu, accordingly, offering a limited menu while also maximizing available space.
The brand provides further growth opportunities
New Planet Smoothie franchise owners also may want multiple stores over time. Territories are structured so that they can make that happen.
“Many owners have several locations in mind, but they want to start with one, learn the ropes and then expand,” Wuycheck says. “They are able to do so, thanks to territories that are designed to give them multiple growth options and allow them to fill in with new locations when they are ready to do so.”
