Smoothie King Consumer Demand Creates Franchise Expansion
Smoothie King Offers 40 Percent Discount off Franchise Fee to Drive Development.
Smoothie King Franchises, Inc. has recently announced it is targeting the Jacksonville, Florida metro area for franchise growth. Currently operating seven stores in the city, Smoothie King aims to open an additional ten locations over the next three years. To fuel development, Smoothie King is offering franchisees 40 percent off its initial fee for the first 40 agreements of 2013 — a savings of $10,000.
“Smoothie King’s Jacksonville expansion is driven by consumer demand. Our guests have reached out through social media channels asking for more locations across the metro area, so they can have easier access to the products they use as part of their daily lifestyle,” says Wan Kim, CEO of Smoothie King Global. “We want to let them know we’re listening,”
With more than 500 locations in the U.S., Smoothie King plans to add 1,000 new locations domestically over the next five years.
“The excitement and demand in Jacksonville for what Smoothie King offers creates an excellent business opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to invest in a brand that has a strong, 18-year track record of success in the market,” says Kim.
To further drive growth, the companies executive team will host a discover day in Jacksonville on August 2 to share the benefits of operating a future Smoothie King with potential future franchisees.
