Planet Smoothie Franchises Are Easy To Own & Operate
The systems and processes of many food-related franchises can be complicated, but Planet Smoothie avoids those barriers
Smart entrepreneurs do a lot of research before committing to a franchise concept. One major point they dig into is the operations aspect — is it easy to own and operate? The answer for those considering a Planet Smoothie franchise is “yes.”
“Many people avoid a food-related business because of all the equipment that must be purchased, the staffing issues around a kitchen and other issues,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “A Planet Smoothie franchise avoids all of that — if you can operate a blender, then you’ve pretty much taken care of the equipment setup, for example.”
Front and back systems are streamlined
The Planet Smoothie franchise model operates … well, smoothly … thanks to a great deal of time and effort to create systems that allow for all operations to be consistent and streamlined.
“We create all recipes for the menu boards in house, and owners and their staff are trained on how to make every smoothie,” John says. “And when we introduce a new item or add in, such as Blasts™ or Planet Pro® protein, we provide training so that everyone knows what they are, how to make them, and how to upsell them to customers so that ticket totals and revenue can be increased.”
The same goes for back-office systems, which are uniform across all of Planet Smoothie. That means that everything from inventory control to ordering is done the same way in each Planet Smoothie franchise location, which means owners can reach out to each other, as well as the corporate support team, if they have issues.
Fun business vibe makes staffing easy
Planet Smoothie’s business model also takes into account staffing, in particular turnover. By creating a fun business that’s not only easy to own and operate, but also fun to work in, franchise owners are able to keep an enthusiastic, committed staff on board.
“Planet Smoothie franchise owners routinely tell us that their staff are like family,” John says. “They are people who really enjoy customer service, who like providing a great-tasting product that people enjoy and they like coming to work. That’s the environment we are committed to maintaining at Planet Smoothie, because the people are what set us apart from the competition.”
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, Planet Smoothie 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.
