Planet Smoothie Pairs Well With Dining-Related Businesses
Colorful, busy smoothie franchise locations bring in customers for nearby dining-related businesses
A Planet Smoothie™ franchise is a good neighbor for dining-related businesses. First, it’s an eye-catching business that makes consumers stop or slow down. Next, it provides an in-demand product that they often will consume while strolling around and seeing what else the area has to offer.
“Commercial real estate brokers love to put a Planet Smoothie franchise into one of their developments,” says Doug Merenda, Director of Franchise Development Franchise Development. “That’s because Planet Smoothie has a high volume of customer traffic throughout the day, and that means more opportunity for surrounding businesses.”
A natural tie-in with food, exercise venues
Planet Smoothie franchise owners are savvy enough to capitalize on their charm, and will collaborate with nearby fitness centers, and even other food-related businesses, to benefit all parties. For instance, there may be coupons available at the gym, as well as at dining establishments. The upshot? Everyone wins when consumers stay longer and spend more.
“Planet Smoothie is a really big lure in shopping centers,” Merenda says. “This is a business that builds a regular, frequent visitor base. And Planet Smoothie sticks to one thing: the smoothies themselves, which are a natural add-on to someone looking for a post-workout meal replacement, or maybe an after-meal treat.”
Planet Smoothie builds location interest
That’s good for all the businesses in an area, which is why Planet Smoothie is such a popular addition to any location. Whether it’s a food court, kiosk in a convenience store, busy urban train station or popular strip mall, a Planet Smoothie franchise stands out, draws interest and is a good neighbor.
“Being able to plug into an area and draw in business is good news for everyone involved,” Merenda says. “But for Planet Smoothie franchise owners, the even better news is that they are able to capitalize on an area’s popularity to build on their client base, a process that just keeps going and going.”
Planet Smoothie is a smoothie franchise that sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies that use healthier, natural ingredients.
