Entrepreneur magazine’s list is an indispensable guide for current and potential franchise owners
(RestaurantNews.com) Robeks Fresh Juices & Smoothies has once again made Entrepreneur Magazine’s prestigious annual list of top franchise opportunities.
For 37 years the magazine has been ranking franchises on objective, measurable benchmarks such as growth rate, financial strength, stability and system size.
“Robeks has been on a strong winning streak, with new products and our new store design helping to push up revenues,” said Jimmer Bolden, Vice President of Business Development. “This recognition just adds to the streak, and will hopefully catch the eye of aspiring business owners nationwide.”
Robeks Fresh Juices and Smoothies is — and always has been — a trailblazer among healthy food franchises. When we launched our first store in Southern California in 1996, smoothies and fresh-squeezed juices were still considered a niche product for the athletic and ultra-health-conscious consumer. These days, it’s with great pride that we note that health trends are starting to catch up with us. Healthy smoothies and fresh-squeezed juices have hit the mainstream, and many Robeks franchisees are enjoying strong same-store sales growth as a result. The company is working vigorously with both new and existing franchisees to open new stores nationwide to meet the surging demand.
Promoting healthy living
Robeks has tremendous appeal to people who are passionate about health and bringing healthy food options to their community.
The company started as a smoothie franchise that placed an emphasis on natural ingredients. As the brand has evolved, it has added an extensive juicing menu, including a Create Your Own Juice option that invites customers to mix and match flavors to create their own custom juice, in addition to our regular menu items. Robeks has also combined ripe frozen fruit with fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juice to create delicious guilt-free alternatives to the coffee fraps of the world.
Our ongoing commitment to nutrition pairs well with strong local marketing, rewards programs and community partnerships to create strong word-of-mouth for our brand. Operations are simple, and total startup costs are a fraction of most food brands: $228,500 to $339,500.
