Drive-thrus Fuel Growth for Planet Smoothie Franchise Owners
Owners of the iconic smoothie franchise can benefit from drive-thru sales
In today’s climate, drive-thrus are extremely popular. It not only provides a crucial source of an added revenue stream for businesses, but it is also the perfect vehicle for social distancing with health, safety and well-being on top of Americans’ minds.
As a result, Planet Smoothie franchise owners are benefiting from drive thrus. In fact, with increased visibility due to the roll out of more drive-thru windows in 2019, Planet Smoothie franchise owners are seeing an increase in drive-thru sales.
“In these trying times, there is a huge demand for delicious smoothie choices that are low in both sugar and calories as a convenient, healthier alternative to fast, processed food,” says Stacey Wopnford, VP of Operations of Planet Smoothie. “This is exactly where Planet Smoothie excels. Additionally, our locations are perfectly designed for social distancing, as more of our locations have drive-thru windows, and smoothies travel well via mobile and third-party delivery.”
Since our founding more than 20 years ago, our iconic smoothie franchise has carved out our own lane in the ever growing juice and smoothie bar industry. In 1995, smoothies were only a trend. Today, however, as more and more Americans become health-conscious, smoothies are not only seen as a healthier alternative to processed food, but also as meal replacements, post-workout nutrition, after school snacks and more.
