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.
Upon determining that Smoothie King is the right franchise opportunity for you, our real estate professionals work closely with you to assist in finding and securing the most suitable location for your juice bar business in the market, in addition to negotiating your lease and transitioning through the design and construction of your store.
Smoothie King franchisees are accountable for selecting their own site with the aid of local tenant-rep brokers and our Real Estate Team. The franchisee will work closely with these team members to locate opportunities and, upon finding a site, must submit a site request form to Smoothie King. A member of the Smoothie King Real Estate Team will analyze and travel to review the site. When both parties approve the site, the processes of lease negotiation, design, construction and, eventually, store opening, will begin.
This information is intended to provide you with general criteria for a Smoothie King site. Opportunities may exist for sites that vary from the standard site criteria.
Smoothie Kings exist in all types of locations across the U.S. and can be tailored to fit almost any layout. The typical space is usually 1,000 - 1,400 square feet and is found within neighborhood and community strip centers, power and lifestyle centers or shopping malls. However, we have developed many special locations including regional malls, airports, hospitals, convention centers, arenas, stadiums, universities, health and fitness facilities, mall kiosks, food courts, military bases and other locations that are not situated on the street having the primary trade area restricted by certain trade generators.
