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.

A Closer Look: QSR has been reporting on the largest companies in the quick-service segment for nearly 15 years. But the QSR 50 only tells a portion of our industry's story. Beyond our borders, there is a world of opportunity. Our readers recognize it, and this year's Global 30 is QSR's first foray into calculating just how large those opportunities are.
The Global 30 is meant to be a guide to international expansion for domestic companies looking to grow, as well as a directory of the world's strongest brands for potential international franchisees looking to tap into a perfected system. Like our domestic list, the Global 30 ranks quick-serve and fast-casual companies by systemwide sales. For the international list, however, the sales are only from non-U.S. units, and the companies are all U.S.-based.
