    "One of the reasons I decided to own a Smoothie King in the first place was, even though it was already a well known brand, it operated like a close knit family. The home office team is really awesome and they're always willing to make themselves available and the rest of the franchisee's are like a really big family."

    We get to go to work every day and sell a product that is beneficial and can impact people in numerous ways that they don’t even understand or know. To be able to use that mission to educate people and use our product to make changes in their lives is incredible

    "I drink the Gladiator Smoothie with peanut butter and strawberries and I add a multivitamin. And since I started drinking that about a year ago I haven't gotten sick, only once which is just recently. So I feel that the smoothies are really great for a meal replacement and keep me really full and I love the product."

    "I would recommend Smoothie King for anyone interested in the franchise or the brand. What I like about the brand is that there is a vision and I like the management that is in place. Wan Kim ever since he took over the company has brought on board senior personnel that I feel is doing extremely well with the company and and the direction it's being taken in."

    "It is gratifying to be serving a healthier product that our guests really enjoy, and will make a positive impact on their lifestyle. Smoothie King's support system has helped us establish two successful stores within two years."

  • Sid Weigan | Smoothie King Franchisee

    "I have been a Smoothie King franchisee for 14 years, and have never been more pleased. Not only does Smoothie King afford me the opportunity to support my family, but it also affords me the opportunity to be hands-on and work within an environment I enjoy and appreciate. By offering guests healthy meal choices and products, unlike other fast food, Smoothie King allows me to earn an income while making a difference in the lives of others."

  • Jerry McGrath | Smoothie King Franchisee

    "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."

  • Phil Garofalo | Smoothie King Franchisee

    "The experience with Smoothie King so far has been great. I couldn't ask for a better group to work with. We are all successful because we work as a team. Everyone is approachable and helps you in every way they can. I look forward to continuing the success of my store and expand in the future."

  • Roger Wilder | Smoothie King Franchisee

    "Consumers today are more health-conscious than ever before, and our wide variety of fresh-blended smoothies, juices, nutritional supplements and snacks continue to meet their needs. With 40 years of brand heritage, multiple revenue streams and flexible development options, Smoothie King has a proven business model for multi-unit ownership, growth and success."

  • Jeremy Kubicek | Smoothie King Franchisee

    "Smoothie King has definitely been consistent, honest, direct and helpful. It's been great. Being a prospective franchisee was probably the scariest time in my business venture because you're not sure how much support you'll get. But not with Smoothie King. They have been completely supportive and it's been a wonderful experience"
