Planet Smoothie is Poised For Growth in 2019
Our flexible business model that generates all-day sales in a growing $2 billion industry is a winning formula for entrepreneurs
A fun to own business that appeals to all ages and types of consumers? A simple food business model with low start-up costs and no prior restaurant experience? These are just a few reasons why the Planet Smoothie® franchise concept continues to enjoy expansion across the United States and isn’t showing any signs of slowing.
“After nearly 20 years in business, our lasting success is proof that smoothies are a part of mainstream culture,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “As more and more people become concerned about maintaining a healthier diet and living an active lifestyle, smoothies will become more and more popular. As one of the leaders in the $2 billion smoothie market, we expect that Planet Smoothie will continue to experience rapid growth in the years to come.”
Our product stands out as a healthy and delicious choice
Smoothies started out as a niche health-food offering, but are now ingrained into everyday life and across a broad spectrum of customers. The flexibility of the smoothie as a product combined with our amazing taste profiles is a win/win.
“Anyone can make a smoothie, but ours are unique,” says Area Developer Ali Kader. “Planet Smoothie is the best tasting smoothie on the planet®, all made with passion and commitment to quality and customer service. We are a strong brand, which is why more people are coming to us when looking for a proven food concept to open in their community.”
Planet Smoothie also offers consumers customization options, which appeals to today’s millennial consumers especially. Our smoothies include real fruits and leafy greens, and we avoid artificial flavors without compromising on taste. Our dynamic menu features more than 30 delicious smoothies that are designed to help fit our customers’ individual needs and preferences, such as boosting energy, building muscle, filling a craving, replacing a meal and more. We also continue to innovate, rolling out products to help drive sales and win repeat business.
Planet Smoothie consumers come from all walks of life
Planet Smoothie consumers range from adults looking for a meal replacement, teenagers grabbing a healthy boost after sports practice and kids wanting a snack, meaning a Planet Smoothie franchise gets steady business all day long. That, combined with smoothies’ ongoing popularity, has created a popular brand that will continue to grow in current markets, as well as expand into new communities in 2019.
“This is a business that’s easy to set up, fun to run and has a strong positive image with consumers. Planet Smoothie is eager to work with people who are looking to start their own business, and who understand the appeal and longevity that the smoothie industry continues to have,” Wuycheck says.
