Founded in 1995 by Martin Sprock, Planet Smoothie, the original concept in the Raving Brands portfolio, is re-energizing itself as Planet Smoothie Café and plans to add 35 stores this year to the 140 now in operation; 150 new units are expected to open over the next three years as the chain targets southern Florida, southern California, Arizona, the midwest and northeast. A healthy foods menu of wraps, sandwiches and salads is intended to boost sales at breakfast and lunch and provide options for stores in colder climates.
