“My deciding factor for bringing a Smoothie King to El Dorado was the lack of choices that our community had for healthy options,” Beth Wittenberg, Smoothie King franchise owner, said. “Getting a quick to-go meal with protein, organic veggies, non-GMO fruits is such a great option for busy families.”


The healthy experience allows for so many options for everyone.


“Benefits to opening a Smoothie King in El Dorado is that it gives people a chance to improve their nutritional choices on a daily basis,” Wittenberg said. “It’s easy. It’s fast, and it tastes great. We also have $5 Fridays.”


With a variety of options coming soon, there will not be anyone left unsatisfied.


Smoothie King will be open from Monday-Saturday 7 a.m.- 9 p.m. and 10 a.m. – 6p.m. on Sundays. They will be hiring team members from the community to work there and plan to have indoor seating available. The restaurant will have a large six-person community table and multiple booths for gathering and meetings, an outdoor patio for the nice summer days and a fast, easy drive-thru.


As previously mentioned, the menu options are vast and have something for everyone.


“Smoothie King offers all kinds of smoothie combinations,” Wittenberg said. “No sugar added. They can be used as a meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, post workout or a snack. There are Fitness Blends, Slim Blends, Post Workout Blends, Mass Gainer Blends, Daily Energy Blends, Kids’ Blends and many others. I am most excited about the opportunity to offer healthy options for our community. I plan to also offer this to school districts for a breakfast and lunch item, sporting events, post-game recovery for high school and college athletes, concession items at community events, business meetings, parties and more.”
