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.
