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!
