Investing in a franchise is an exciting time: you’re ready to become your own boss with the backing of a reliable franchisor! Yet, there are a few things to consider before you open your own juice bar franchise, but choosing a leading franchisor like Smoothie King can ensure that all your bases are covered.

Smoothie King is the world’s largest smoothie brand, with 1,350 locations and another 100+ set to open this year. We’ve seen same-store sales growth for the last 10+ years and are consistently recognized for our outstanding franchise opportunity.

We make it simple and pleasurable for guests to achieve their individual health goals by offering a wide variety of smoothie options in addition to a number of healthier retail products like sports beverages, energy bars, vitamin supplements, and more. 

We know that anyone can make a smoothie and that other brands offer smoothie franchise opportunities, but only Smoothie King creates purposeful, specialized smoothies that are expertly blended with more than just fruit in a blender to accommodate specific needs, goals, and ambitions. 

Offering customized smoothies benefits not only our customers, but our franchise owners as well. Our franchisees can create the best smoothies imaginable thanks to our research and development team, proprietary recipes, and high-quality ingredients.
