Last year local, Paul McCulloch opened the first Smoothie King
in a YMCA located in Nashville and recently opened one of the largest Smoothie King locations in the country.
The business is going great so far, and even with no advertising, no grand opening, etc.
“The response has been probably triple of what we thought it would be," McCulloch told The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet
. "Word of mouth, the location, and everything has just really helped us out. We opened the doors on the eleventh and we’ve been busy ever since.
While the smoothie powerhouse has brought many changes to the building, one thing that has remained intact is the vault. While the cash may be gone, the vault itself and the door remain, giving Smoothie King
a very unique and interesting feel.
“We looked at this vault and at first, my general manager thought it would be a good storage room for our powders and everything like that. We looked at a design like that, which would have been cheaper. But the more we thought about it the more we said ‘This is really unique. Most people don’t get to go up to a huge vault door and touch it so we realized we had enough room to put a table in here. So we did. I thought it would be a first for Smoothie King as this can be a great room the community can use for bible studies, group hangouts, business meetings, anything. It really serves a double purpose.” explained McCulloch.
