BUSINESS OWNERSHIP IS “SMOOTH” WHEN
YOU OWN A PIECE OF THE PLANET
For nearly two decades, Planet Smoothie has been one of the most innovative smoothie franchises in the world. We got our start in Atlanta in 1995, quickly expanded throughout the Southeast and now have more than 100 stores throughout the United States.
Planet Smoothie is far more affordable than most food-related franchises, with lower startup costs, lower operation costs, less spoilage and simpler staffing. Many food concepts can cost $1 million or more to open and can require dozens of employees, but the startup costs for a Planet Smoothie franchise range from $77,850 to $309,250, depending on whether you open an alternative, kiosk-style location, a traditional shopping center location or a dual-branded store with Tasti D-Lite®.
Smoothies are simple to prepare — it’s all blending, no cooking — so training new employees is a breeze. That makes it much easier to scale your business as it grows. The simplicity of the business model also makes it easier to manage. That helps you as you master your new smoothie franchise, and when you are ready to expand to a second, third or ninth location, that simplicity will make it easier for you to hire general managers.
- A Planet Smoothie franchisee should have an outgoing personality and a desire to provide customers a healthier option.
- You should also enjoy going out into the community to meet new people and let them know about your store.
- Building partnerships in the community is key to growing revenue for your store.
- We provide a detailed game plan to help you build awareness, and executing the game plan can be half the fun of owning a store: You get to be the person who makes the community a little bit better and a little bit healthier, and communities love that!
Why Planet Smoothie?Planet Smoothie is a great business because it costs a lot less to start compared with most restaurant concepts, it appeals to a growing segment of customers, it is simple to operate, and it attracts loyal customers who often visit once a week or more.
In fact, most stores have a group of regulars who stop by every single day — sometimes twice! — and our customer loyalty rewards program offers deals and discounts to encourage customers to become regulars. (Several customers are approaching their 1,000th visit!)
- Smoothie sales continue to climb, and the $2 billion category is projected to increase another 25% over the next three years.1
- Home to “The best tasting smoothie on the planet,” Planet Smoothie is one of the longest standing smoothie franchises and has over 100 locations across the country.
To open a store, you need at least $100,000 in liquid capital and a net worth of $250,000. We can help you understand your financing options. To get started, fill out the form below.
