The first Planet Smoothie opened in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995 offering a variety of fruit based smoothie drinks. In the first two decades of operation, the pseudo-restaurant has made partnerships with Tasti D-Lite and Kahala Brands and boasts over one hundred United States locations.
Planet Smoothie expands by a franchise-structured strategy, catering to entrepreneurship targeted marketing. After joining Kahala Brands in 2015, the company has opted to abide by their business model. Kahala Brands, the franchise conglomerate responsible for the management of well known companies including Coldstone Creamery, Blimpie’s Sandwiches, and Pinkberry, sets a standardized business model for each of their brands. They strive to provide customers with quality service and freshly made products.
Following in the footsteps of successful chains like Jamba Juice or Blenders in the Grass, the smoothie company chooses health as a focal selling point of their business. Their partner company Tasti D-Lite manufactures low fat dessert products, like yogurts, which are used in the smoothies.
When visiting a Planet Smoothie location, one is presented with many options. Along with classic, recognizable smoothie mixtures are more specialized recipes catered to your dietary needs. There are protein centric drinks as well as energy boosting and superfruit options. The LeanLeaf choice uses stevia as a sweetener alternative, for those looking to lower their sugar intake. Planet Smoothie also gives customers the option to add a “supplement blast” which is a unique combination of vitamins and minerals that can be added to your drink to increase its nutritional value.
