North Bay, Canada (PressExposure) November 02, 2009 -- Booster Juice and Jugo Juice are about to get a lot more competition in Canada as Euphoria Smoothies and Bistro Cafe opens its 45th store in Cambridge Ontario.
Euphoria Smoothies, a similar quick-service concept, wants to put the squeeze on its competition, with 100 stores planned for Canada in the next 4 years. That's the commitment of Garvin Cole, Euphoria's Director of Sales and Operations. The chain has stores in Barrie, Orangeville, Orillia, New Liskeard, North Bay, Sudbury, White Rock, Lacombe, and Calgary. Euphoria also has a small international presence, with stores in the USA, the UK, UAE and a development agreement in Kuwait.
"We're certainly putting a lot of resources behind developing the local Canadian market, which is very important for us as a proud Canadian based company," said Cole .
At Euphoria Smoothies, where the average ticket is $8.87, said Cole, customers can get fruit smoothies, power smoothies, bubble teas, lattes, sandwiches, soups, salads and gourmet soft stuffed pretzels.
"We focus on very high flavour profiles," said Cole, "with high standards of quality, superior value, & product excellence "
The average investment for licensees is $85,000, he said, for stores of 800 to 1,200 square feet with zero franchise royalty fees or monthly co-op advertising fees. Euphoria licensees own 100% of their store revenues. This is a significant savings for any entrepreneur thinking about starting a new business. In addition, for a limited time, each entrepreneur will receive a FREE SMOOTHIE BUSINESS STARTER BONUS to help them kick-start their new Euphoria business.
