About Planet Smoothie
It takes a lot to be called 'The best tasting smoothie on the Planet'. And we're proud of our history, team members and product innovations. We are dedicated to the proposition that all smoothies are not created equal and focused on delivering great-tasting products in a wide variety of options to fit the unique needs that our customers' tastes and lifestyles demand. Our mission, vision and values are what drives us to deliver an awesome smoothie experience to our customers.
Values & History
We are the world's leading provider of great-tasting, good-for-you products served in an energized, enthusiastic environment.
We opened our very first store in 1995 in Atlanta, Georgia. From the start, we focused on smoothies that tasted great and fun and unique stores. We knew our guests would appreciate a store that served delicious, real fruit smoothies, delivered with enthusiasm and a smile — and they have wholeheartedly proven us right. We have over 100 stores across the country and growing every day.
In 2015 we joined the Kahala Brands family and will now have an even bigger team searching for great-tasting products, healthier ingredients and the latest advances in flavor and nutrition to keep our customers coming back for more!
Market & CompetitionThe American smoothie boom is real. As more and more Americans become educated on fitness and health, millions are turning to smoothies for an accessible, convenient and delicious way to promote an active and healthy lifestyle. Smoothies have become a multibillion-dollar industry and our franchise is helping entrepreneurs with a passion for wellness and smoothie culture serve their communities by bringing them the best-tasting smoothies on the planet.
For over 20 years, we have stood out in the smoothie industry by delivering delicious tasting smoothies without any of the junk. We use only the best, freshest ingredients and our customers find reasons to visit us from morning to night.
It's no secret that America has a major problem with obesity, diabetes and heart disease. It's also clear that people want to eat more mindfully, and are willing to seek healthier alternatives to fast, processed food spiked with sugar, salt, and artificial flavorings. And according to a Nielsen study, 88% of those asked, especially the coveted Millennial group, said they would pay more for healthier options.
That shows the desire is there, but there are roadblocks. A Mintel survey's participants identified the barriers that keep them from reaching their healthy eating goals. Among the reasons: availability of products, time constraints, taste concerns and confusion about what's healthy.
Planet Smoothie tackles these issues head-on with smoothie choices that are lower in sugar and calories and offer everything from leafy greens to added protein. We make it easy for customers to be in and out and on their way in minutes.
