Ribbon-cutting event will feature Hill Country area kids taking part in Smoothie King's 700 Step Challenge
CEDAR PARK, TX — Smoothie King, the premier smoothie bar and nutritional lifestyle center in the industry, will unveil its 700th new store on Saturday morning, with a grand opening event at its new (and very first) Cedar Park location. Complimentary massages will be offered at the event.
Kids, 12 years and younger, are encouraged to participate in the “Smoothie King 700 Step Challenge,” which is designed to get youngsters to be more physically active, by taking 700 steps. Participants are given a “700 Step Challenge” card to track their progress during the week by doing things like drinking water, jumping rope and eating fruits and vegetables. Kids with completed cards can redeem them at any Smoothie King store for a free 12 oz smoothie. The most creative kid will earn the ultimate bragging rights (upon winning) of being crowned Smoothie King or Smoothie Queen and will receive special recognition through an award and free gifts.
With its store opening and challenge, Smoothie King hopes to entice Cedar Park residents to adopt healthier lifestyles by incorporating more fitness into their daily routines, and adding smoothies and healthy snacks to their diets.
Under its accelerated expansion plan, Smoothie King plans to open more than 1,000 stores across the United States over the next 3 years. The Metairie, La.-based company, which currently operates 700 units, reports it has extensive franchise opportunities available in the Southeast, mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, as well as Texas. International development includes master franchise and corporate expansion in Korea, Singapore and Malaysia, with (50) new stores planned in Korea and (10) in Singapore in 2013.
