Planet Smoothie Ranked On Entrepreneur’s Top Food Franchises Of 2019
Continued notice by and positive press from major brand evaluators shows a smoothie franchise that’s performing well in current markets and rapidly growing in new ones
Investing in a food-based franchise business can be a very wise move — if the budding business owner does his or her homework and picks the right brand. That’s why many turn to Entrepreneur magazine and its Franchise 500 annual rankings, as well as the more specialized lists it produced throughout the year.
One of those, the Top Food Franchises of 2019, has just been released, and Planet Smoothie™ has grabbed a spot in the rankings for smoothie franchise opportunities.
Rankings based on multiple business factors
Food franchises have always been popular, if nothing else, because of the sheer variety of offerings. According to Entrepreneur’s editorial team, more than a fifth of the franchises that applied to be ranked in the Franchise 500 were food-based, “from tried-and-true favorites like burgers and pizza to the latest trends, like poke and açaí bowls.” And because of its popularity, the smoothie industry was right up there in the rankings.
For that list, as well as this one, rankings were based on the scores each company received from Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 formula, which evaluates more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability, according to the magazine.
Planet Smoothie’s history and solid growth garner interest
“The smoothie franchise industry is very competitive, so when a list like Entrepreneur’s comes out everyone takes a look,” Wuycheck says. “Being included means that Planet Smoothie has been carefully evaluated by longtime industry watchers, and that shows anyone who’s looking at the brand that it passes some very important tests and is very much worth their review.”
Planet Smoothie is a smoothie franchise that sets itself apart by offering great-tasting smoothies that use healthier, natural ingredients.
