Special to 1808Delaware
Smoothie King, the world’s leading smoothie brand committed to inspiring guests to live healthy, active lifestyles, is opening its new Northpointe Plaza location in Lewis Center on Saturday, August 19.
As well as offering the welcoming walk-in Smoothie King customer experience, the store, located at 8597 Columbus Pike, will also feature a convenient drive-thru. The store will host a grand opening for the community on Saturday with hourly giveaways from 10 AM to 4 PM including gift bags and the chance to win free smoothies from Smoothie King for an entire year.
The store is owned and operated by Christopher Klebba who now owns 18 Smoothie Kings in Ohio and Michigan.
“We think Lewis Center is a great community, and certainly the customer traffic that Northpointe Plaza generates is a win for us and the other tenants.” Klebba is founding president of Northern Diamond Management, a private equity firm tied to the holding company that owns all his Smoothie King franchises. Like Smoothie King, Klebba is community oriented as well as his focus on investing in the people who work for him at all of his locations.
As part of its vision to be an integral part of every health and fitness journey, Smoothie King’s diverse menu features 70 purposefully-blended smoothies tailored to each guest’s needs – all of which fit into one of four purpose categories: Fitness, Slim, Wellness and Break Time.
Smoothie King implemented its Clean BlendsTM promise as part of its mission to be more transparent about what ingredients go and don’t go into each smoothie. Through this promise, Smoothie King is committed to using more whole fruits and organic vegetables – like mangoes, blueberries, kale and spinach – to blend more nutritious, great-tasting smoothies. The Clean BlendsTM promise also means zero added sugar in many purpose blends and a menu with absolutely no artificial preservatives, flavors, colors and other ingredients on the brand’s “No No List.”
Smoothie King customers can join the Healthy Rewards loyalty program and earn points toward free smoothies, exclusive offers and personalized discounts.
