Planet Smoothie Franchises Work in Any Location
An adaptable footprint allows for installation in traditional locations, such as malls and commercial centers, as well as convenience stores and more
A menu full of myriad combinations and options sets every Planet Smoothie™ franchise apart. That same mindset can be applied to the Planet Smoothie franchise concept itself, thanks to a flexible footprint that allows for a great deal of physical customization.
“Planet Smoothies can be found in food courts and outdoor malls, traditional sites where you’d expect to see this kind of business,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “But because Planet Smoothie doesn’t require a full kitchen or lots of storage space, it can also be shrunk down or repositioned into much smaller venues where space is at a premium.”
Trains, planes and transportation centers
For instance, the Planet Smoothie franchise in New York’s Penn Station made a big splash when it opened. Railway commuters and others who frequent the busy transportation hub value the convenience of Planet Smoothie and are eager to patronize the franchise there.
“A Planet Smoothie franchise can fit into the limited retail space available in most large train stations and airports,” Wuycheck says. “Often those facilities have very strict guidelines on the type of food retail they will house, and Planet Smoothie easily fits the bill thanks to its adaptability.”
Convenience stores and kiosks offer opportunity
That footprint can become even smaller for an entrepreneur who wants to offer Planet Smoothie’s great products in a convenience-store setting, or even a kiosk in the lobby of a busy office building.
“These smaller sites may not offer the full Planet Smoothie menu, yet they have plenty for customers to choose from,” Wuycheck explains. “They are a great option for an entrepreneur who already has a storefront business and wants to add value, or for a commercial business owner who would like to create an additional source of revenue on the property.”
