Smoothie Factory

Description

At the core of our success are two distinct profit centers (smoothies-other food items and nutritional products) that combine to create a higher sales volume than those of our competitors.

The reason: our wide selection and low pricing on nutritional products continues to expand our customer base and grow traffic, fueling sales of high-margin smoothies through impulse buying and incremental purchases.

Smoothie Factory is blending nutrition with great taste! Low in calories, high in nutritional content, and made with real fruit, our large variety of recipes is guaranteed to satisfy the flavor preferences of virtually every customer. Along with premium smoothies, our stores have the option of serving authentic frozen yogurt, juices and pre-made meals to go.

We sell a wide selection of brand-name nutritional products for less, every day, at 30% to 50% off MSRP! Our large inventory and price-point difference attracts a large customer base beyond our devoted smoothie aficionados, and has made us a leader in nutritional product sales.
