"As a multi-unit franchisee with 10 locations in Louisiana, I can say that Smoothie King is a solid investment opportunity. Consumers today are more health-conscious than ever before, and our wide variety of fresh-blended smoothies, juices, nutritional supplements and snacks continue to meet their needs. With 40 years of brand heritage, multiple revenue streams and flexible development options, Smoothie King has a proven business model for multi-unit ownership, growth and success."

"Our experience with choosing to be a Smoothie King Franchisee has been wonderful! From the very first meeting in Rye, NY when we attended a "Discovery Day" and met with Steve Shields and Natalie Johnson we have felt like we are part of one huge family. Smoothie King Corporate offers excellent Franchisee support and they go above and beyond in their willingness to help us be successful. Anytime we need help we can speak to anyone at corporate headquarters including Steve or Cindy Kuhnau. This experience has been excellent for us and we enjoy dealing with our guests and being part of their healthy lifestyle plan. We also enjoy giving back to the community by supplying smoothies for many charity events. We just opened our drive-thru at our current location over the weekend and the experience just continues to get better!"
- Dominick and Lynda Furnari, Smoothie King Franchisee
"I really love working in my Smoothie King store, as I have the opportunity to chat with hundreds of guests each and every day. Not to mention, I love that I'm serving a product that is genuinely healthy and nutritious. The hours are ideal, my staff is incredible, our location is dynamic, and serving the general public is my pleasure. When you hear the testimonials from guests that have recovered from cancer, gastric bypass, or obesity, all in part to our product, then it makes it easy to get out of bed every day."
- Jason Finley, Smoothie King Franchisee
"Smoothie King has definitely been consistent, honest, direct and helpful. It's been great. Being a perspective franchisee was probably the most scary time in my business venture because you're not sure how much support you'll get. But not with Smoothie King. They have been completely supportive and it's been a wonderful experience."
- Jeremy Kubicek, Smoothie King Franchisee
"Owning my Smoothie King store has been a very rewarding experience. Smoothie King is super easy to work with - they give you all of the support you want and need. They give you the opportunity and some leeway to do what you do best. They certainly have in place all the different guidelines, procedures and training to help people be successful. The plan is in place, it's just a matter of how well you implement it, turn it around and adapt it to who you are. Every market is different so it's much more successful when you can tailor it to who you are but still maintain the quality and integrity of the product. I've really enjoyed working with all of the people at the corporate office. They're there for the support if and when you need them."
- Jerry McGrath, Smoothie King Franchisee
"The experience with Smoothie King so far has been great. I couldn't ask for a better group to work with. We are all successful because we work as a team. Everyone is approachable and helps you in every way they can. I look forward to continuing the success of my store and expand in the future."
- Phil Garofalo, Smoothie King Franchisee
"It is gratifying to be serving a healthy product that our guests really enjoy, and will make a positive impact on their lifestyle. Smoothie King's support system has helped us establish two successful stores within two years."
- Ed & Brandon Shamy, Smoothie King Franchisee
"I have been a Smoothie King franchisee for 14 years, and have never been more pleased. Not only does Smoothie King afford me the opportunity to support my family, it affords me the opportunity to be hands on and work within an environment I enjoy and appreciate. By offering guests healthy meal choices and products, unlike other fast food, Smoothie King allows me to earn an income while making a difference in the lives of others."
