“Foodservice operators who focus primarily on smoothies are experiencing competition from brands that are not smoothie-centric, retail products, and consumers preparing their own smoothies at home. Operators need to show consumers their products have value, by offering fresh ingredients, produce that consumers may find hard to source, or items that are more expensive at home. Further, they have the advantage that their freshly made, easily customizable beverages retain the taste and nutritional properties only available in fresh produce.
