The Crimson White: University of Alabama Alumni Grows Smoothie King in Alma Mater

University of Alabama graduate grows his Smoothie King franchise.

Chris Thomas began his professional career with Smoothie King in his sophomore year at The University of Alabama and was involved in opening the store inside the Student Recreation Center.

After undergrad, Chris obtained his master’s degree and went into business with his father. Chris’ academic background and his father’s experience as a McDonald’s franchisee proved to be a great combination.

They were attracted to Smoothie King because of its fresh, healthy menu offerings.

“We felt like we wanted to do something more healthy,” Thomas said in an interview with The Crimson White. “We settled in Florida and took the opportunity to go visit with franchises there. We really liked what we saw and learned.”

Thomas hopes that his Smoothie King franchise will help motivate customers to live a healthier lifestyle.
