Planet Smoothie Ranks #8 on Franchise Chatter’s list of “The 25 Best Smoothie and Juice Bar Franchises of 2021”
Iconic smoothie franchise ranks high on the list of top franchise opportunities in the fast-growing smoothie category
Franchise Chatter recently published their list of “The 25 Best Smoothie and Juice Bar Franchises of 2021,” educating entrepreneurs who want to start a smoothie franchise on the best models in the industry, and we’re proud to announce Planet Smoothie made the cut at #8.
Planet Smoothie is “offering flavor, novelty, and convenience, but they’re also selling something more – health,” Franchise Chatter reports. Our iconic smoothie franchise is well-known for specializing in handcrafted smoothies that meet each customer’s taste and nutritional needs – which can help drive sales and create customer loyalty for our franchisees.
Since 1995, the number of Planet Smoothie locations has continued to grow – now with over 140 locations open across the country. More than 25 years of experience in the smoothie industry allows Planet Smoothie to continue to deliver an exceptional customer experience and products that meet the needs of our customers.
According to Franchise Chatter, the juice and smoothie bar industry “grew on average by 1.3% per year from 2015 to 2019,” and, “with a market size of $3 billion, it’s an appealing area to get into, as several of the most prominent juice chains are driven by franchising, allowing independent operators to buy into high visibility brands.”
With a business model that’s comparatively affordable and easy to operate, Planet Smoothie owners have an advantage in the market based on the backing and support of our parent company, Kahala Brands™, one of the world’s largest franchisors. Under the leadership of Kahala Brands, Planet Smoothie franchise owners benefit from world-class support, tremendous buying power, and a long track record of helping entrepreneurs thrive in the smoothie business.
Americans are the biggest consumers of smoothies in the world. The popularity of the industry has led to high growth margins for Planet Smoothie owners in the last few years. The global smoothie market is projected to grow 7.7% by 2027 and according to Franchise Chatter, “There’s arguably never been a better time to enter this sector.”
