Franchise Owner Testimonials
Meet some of the talented and hard-working members of the Planet Smoothie family
Planet Smoothie franchise owners are excited and enthusiastic about their decision to own and operate a business in the dynamic and growing smoothie sector. Here’s what a few of them have to say about why they opted to go with Planet Smoothie to realize their entrepreneurial dreams:
Ryan DeWitt of Kilmore, FL
I’m a pilot. I was looking for a business to get into for a second income, and I wanted something healthy. I looked at gyms and things like that, but they are not the easiest to get into when you’re in your 20s, as I am. Planet Smoothie was more financially feasible.
It’s definitely been a great opportunity, and it’s definitely rewarding. I have a second location now and looking back I am very happy with my decision.
Stephanie Skinner of Orlando, FL
I was almost a daily visitor to Planet Smoothie when I was in college, and so when my husband I were looking into investment opportunities I thought about Planet Smoothie. It’s a great concept; refreshing and inviting. Planet Smoothie has been around a long time and the concept is not going to go anywhere. It’s one thing to buy into a franchise system; it’s another when you absolutely believe in the product and can’t wait to enjoy it yourself.
Tyrone Forbes of Eustis, FL
I loved how Planet Smoothie treated me as a customer, and so I decided to look at their business model. It’s simple, and they hold the same beliefs that I have when it comes to good customer service and making the best product. The corporate team is very attentive to our needs, and I am very happy.
Jonathan Goodyear of Orlando, FL
I own a software company that powers the Planet Smoothie loyalty program, so I was a vendor and customer before I became an owner. I also serve on the franchise advisory board in addition to being an owner, so I really get to represent what myself and the other owners are looking for when it comes to marketing, offers and things like that. Our corporate team really wants to listen to franchise owners, and I think that’s important. It was always my dream to own a business, and I certainly knew Planet Smoothie. It would have been daunting for me to get into something where you are cooking and managing a large staff. This is a simple business, it’s easy to get started and get your arms around, and it’s easy to expand out into multiple units if that’s where you want to go.
Natalie Rivera of Orlando, FL
When my parents and I were looking at a business to own and operate together, we looked at many concepts. [Area Developer] Jason Mann got back to us very quickly and got us engaged right away. We loved that it was a simple, easy business to understand and operate. The training was very strong an easy, and we were ready to go right away. I love the business because it allows for close, personal interactions with our guests.
