5 Benefits of a Cleaner Franchise Concept
For franchisees looking to enter the food and beverage space, Smoothie King offers a cleaner franchise concept in more ways than one.
With minimal equipment and no cooking, Smoothie King franchises offer streamlined and clean operations, creating several benefits to franchisees, team members and guests as compared to other QSR and fast-casual concepts.
Here’s a closer look:
1. Minimal Equipment and Lower Costs
With Smoothie King, all you need for equipment are blenders, refrigerators and freezers to get rolling. This means:
- Lower equipment and materials expenses
- Less cleaning
- A smaller staff
- Lower startup costs
2. Franchisee and Team Member Satisfaction
Minimal equipment, a streamlined menu and simpler operations help make the team member experience enjoyable. Plus, Smoothie King team members and franchise owners enjoy going home without smelling like fried food.
3. Quality Customer Experience
Guests benefit from our cleaner franchise concept because it allows for smooth customer flow,
making every trip to Smoothie King simple, quick and enjoyable.
The customer experience in a clean, streamlined store is fast and simple, making it easy for guests to include Smoothie King in their daily routine as they work toward their purpose.
4. Cleaner for the Planet
A cleaner franchise concept can also make it easier for franchisees to reduce their store’s impact on the environment. Smoothie King stores require fewer resources to operate:
- Fewer ingredients
- Minimal packaging
- Fewer utensils
This effort helps to minimize waste.
5. Clean Ingredients
Smoothie King is a cleaner franchise concept in every sense of the word, and that includes our ingredients. Through our Cleaner Blending initiative, we are working to remove:
- Artificial flavors
- Artificial colors
- Artificial preservatives
- Added hormones
- And GMO fruits and veggies from our smoothies.
And we’re adding more whole fruits and vegetables!
Whatever your purpose…
