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.
Thank you for your interest in Smoothie King! We are delighted that you are considering our company as your next juice bar business opportunity!
