Healthier Side of Life
It’s Our Passion. It’s Our Purpose

More than ever, consumers are embracing healthy lifestyles looking to enhance their long-term health and quality of life. The demand for healthier food choices is changing the way many food service establishments do business. Smoothie Factory is perfectly positioned to meet this growing demand by continuously developing and providing a balanced mix of healthy food and beverages that not only taste great but are healthy for you. Our brand is passionate about sharing our Healthier Side of Life™ ethos, offerings, and attitude with customers in the communities we are a part of, operate, and serve.

Our menu offers a balanced mix of innovative and delicious smoothies, juices, juice cleans programs, frozen yogurt, powerfood bowls, popsicles, and healthy light foods. The combination of these offerings make us much more than a juice bar allowing multiple revenue centers under one roof. In addition, the variety of our menu offerings attracts additional segments, expands our customer base, and increases our dayparts (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, deserts, and catering) creating higher average tickets and sales volume.

Innovative And Delicious Menu

We’re the brand for innovative and delicious smoothies, juices, juice cleanses, frozen yogurt, superfood bowls, popsicles, and healthy lite foods. Whether our customers are craving a delicious, convenient meal or an on-the-go snack, Smoothie Factory makes healthy and satisfying eating a reality.

Product development is a very exciting part of Smoothie Factory. Formulating recipes with quality ingredients that are not only delicious but healthy is our passion. In addition, we develop many menu items specific to individual markets based on ingredients available, food costs, demand, and local tastes.

Our product development team is always looking for what’s new and hot in the market to satisfy our guests appetite for both health and flavor. Throughout the year, we introduce new product offerings and drive existing guests back to our stores more frequently through limited time offers.

Initial Training

Smoothie Factory provides extensive training programs for our franchise partners. For each new site, we provide a 2-week training program that covers all aspects of store operations.

This training is a combination of classroom based and on-site and begins in an already established store.

The first week is dedicated towards the Operations Manual and live in-store training serving guests. The second week is dedicated to store setup and post-opening training. The training includes classes on smoothies, juices, gelato, product knowledge, guest service, and retail skills, plus several three-hour workshops called “knowing Your Products”. Team members are trained in using the cash register, merchandising, and cleanliness. Additional sessions cover how to maintain and clean equipment, explaining nutritional blends to guests, taking personal responsibility for store cleanliness, and much more.

In addition, we provide Sub-Master Franchisees with dedicated training towards the sales process and sub franchising. This training is scheduled at your inconvenience once you are ready and comfortable to start growing the brand through sub-franchising.

Real Estate & Construction

Site selection is critical to the potential success of a new Smoothie Factory® store. The Smoothie Factory® Development Team works with franchisees to review our standard site criteria and market trade areas for possible development of Smoothie Factory® stores. Read more…

In addition, we work with your group to negotiate key terms of your lease agreement which help to ensure continuity and a more profitable business.

As a franchisee, you will have access to our experience and contacts from day one. We will work with either your architect or ours to develop the initial Smoothie Factory store specific to your market and regulations. We collaborate together throughout the design phase to ensure that each Smoothie Factory store conveys the right image and character. Once the architectural drawings have been completed, we will support you and your selected contractor to complete the build-out of the store as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimize expenses.


Since 1996, Smoothie Factory and its franchise partners have built the brand smoothie-by-smoothie, guest-by-guest, and enjoys the word of mouth appeal of our stores. Read more…

Our organized and unique marketing approach brings awareness to the Smoothie Factory brand, drives new guests to our counters, and help keep regular guests coming back for more.

Limited Time Offers
Smoothie Factory develops new smoothie and juice promotions every quarter to support our franchise community and keep things fresh and exciting for our guests. When a particular promotion is very well received, it is considered for permanent placement on our menu. In this way, we keep up with the latest trends and our guests judge whether or not the promotion should stay ongoing.

Loyalty Program
The Smoothie Factory Loyalty program is a digital format that allows guests to receive points based on store purchases. Guests can view their account, reward program, and points online as well as receive promotional e-mails and SMS messages with special offers and discounts to help drive traffic. The program also allows our store owners to determine which guests haven’t visited in a while allowing them to push out special promotions to help bring the guest back in more frequently.

Direct Mail
Smoothie Factory works with our vendors and suppliers to contribute rebate dollars to our franchise community’s marketing fund. In this way, we are often able to offset expenses by up to 50% or simply double up on the amount of advertising. One of the best medians for this partnership is through direct mail wherein we target the zip code of each store location.

Guest Relations
Guest service is an overall philosophy with one purpose in mind – creating a positive experience for our guests. When a guest is not happy with our product, service, or experience, we ask guests to contact us by e-mail or phone so we can make it right and learn from our mistakes. Every complaint is personally handled by an officer of the company and then followed up at the store level.

Ongoing Support

Our ongoing support sets Smoothie Factory apart from other brands. Our support team helps franchisees track key performance indicators, solve operational challenges, and boost performance. Read more…

In addition, we constantly collaborate on new product offerings that will be best received in each market.

When a franchisee is getting started, after the first location is opened, they can expect to hear from our support team every week for two to three months — enough time for our franchisees to adjust to managing the first store. Once our master franchisees hit their stride, the support team stays in touch every 30-45 days at a minimum — and master franchisees can always reach out for help at any time. Once you hit your stride, you can expect to hear from us regularly and of course you can reach out to us for help at any time.
