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.

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.
