Can I Scale a Planet Smoothie Franchise?
Planet Smoothie franchises are easy to scale
Planet Smoothie’s systems make it simple to ramp up your operation and eventually expand to multiple locations. One of the great things about the brand is its simplicity. Smoothies are easy to make — and if you have the right ingredients, marketing and cost structures in place, the business can be perfect for you! One of the best aspects of the business for a new Planet Smoothie owner — and this is especially true if you are new to the restaurant industry — is that it is very easy to hire and train Planet Smoothie employees.
You don’t need to have years of culinary experience and training to make a great smoothie. We provide outstanding recipes, the ideal equipment package and the operating know-how to get things done efficiently.
Because the store is simple to run, you don’t need to be in the store every moment it is open, which frees you up to build your business by doing community outreach and local marketing. Planet Smoothie’s grand opening plans and ongoing marketing resources put a lot of tools at your disposal, but nothing is more effective at growing your customer base than connecting with local schools, gyms, health organizations and other groups in your community. Our business model allows you to get out from behind the counter and become Mr. or Mrs. Planet Smoothie in your community.
As your store’s customer base grows, you should be able to easily add staff to handle the increased volume. Once volume increases enough, you’ll be ready to open an additional location. Planet Smoothie’s business model makes it simple for a multi-unit franchise owner to put managers in charge of day-to-day operations while keeping tabs on the business’s performance and handling backend business operations like accounting, marketing, payroll and ordering.
Multi-unit owners typically visit their stores frequently to meet with the managers and ensure that the guest experience stays top-notch, but they don’t have to be in the business every waking hour.
Ambitious multi-unit owners can even choose to ramp up an entire market. Our area developer program lays out a path to pioneer the Planet Smoothie brand in new cities and build brand dominance.
