Are Planet Smoothie Franchises Cold-Weather Destinations? You Bet!
Smoothies are meal replacements, after-the-gym snacks and more, and therefore aren’t limited to popularity as a refreshing summertime treat
During the hot days of summer, people love to post images of cool, refreshing drinks on their social media accounts. Smoothie Franchises pop up a lot, including on the accounts of Planet Smoothie™ franchise owners and their loyal customers.
Does that mean owning a Planet Smoothie franchise means only being busy during the warmer seasons, and slow during the winter? Absolutely not! In fact, “Planet Smoothie franchises are a bustling, year-round business,” says Doug Merenda, Director of Franchise Development.
Smoothie’s versatility means steady traffic
“People enjoy a cool smoothie on a hot day, but that’s just scratching the surface of smoothies’ popularity,” Merenda says. “Customers visit their local Planet Smoothie franchise location while out running errands, or after school. They stop by before a night out, or after the gym, to grab a smoothie instead of a heavy, filling meal. And those visitors aren’t guided by anything seasonal.”
That breaks down to a smoothie franchise opportunity that offers a steady stream of business all day, every day. That’s good for franchise owners in terms of scheduling staff — no peaks or valleys, as in other food-service business models — as well as a regular revenue stream.
Right product, right time means strong growth
For years now, Planet Smoothie franchises have shown that they are an all-day, every-day type of business that can be easy and fun to own and operate. And thanks to the outstanding support from veteran franchise operator Kahala Brands™, Planet Smoothie also features a well-organized system that allows even first-time franchise owners to start strong and grow quickly.
“With Planet Smoothie, Kahala has created a business model for entrepreneurs that can be simple and affordable, as well as one that continues to be a regular stop for consumers in search of quick-service food options that are a good fit with their active, healthy lifestyle,” Merenda says. “Planet Smoothie locations are seeing a surge in business as people are getting back out again, and as we head into the holiday season and ramp up for 2022 there’s never been a better time to look at this exciting, affordable smoothie franchise opportunity.”
