Summer Cools Off with Smoothie King Tour
NEW ORLEANS - As temperatures keep rising, Smoothie King is driving across the county in a customized van to bring its refreshing and nutritious smoothies to six different states this summer. Free smoothies will be given out at major sporting and community events to help patrons cool off, and staff will be on hand to discuss the importance of leading an active and healthy lifestyle.
"Our company's mission is to relentlessly influence more and more people to achieve a healthier lifestyle," said Steve Kuhnau, president and co-founder of Smoothie King. "By touring the country, we are making it even easier for people to try our smoothies and learn more about how smoothies can complement any lifestyle - to bulk up, trim down or get energy."
This tour falls in line with another recent Smoothie King program: the company has partnered with Play Every Day, an initiative with a goal of encouraging children to get 60 minutes of adequate exercise each day. Following the company's ongoing effort to promote the pursuit of health, these play cards are available across the country at every Smoothie King location.
The summer tour dates are as follows:
- Baltimore, Md. July 20 - 22
- Indianapolis, Ind. July 27 - 29
- Columbus, Ohio Aug. 3 - 5
- Arlington, Texas Aug. 10 - 11
- Atlanta, Ga. Aug. 17 - 19
- Houston, Texas Aug. 24 - 26
- Knoxville, Tenn. Aug. 31 - Sept. 3
