"Smoothie King has been incredibly well-received across the Midwest and Northeast, and we are confident the brand has great potential for further development,"added O'Keefe.

"We look forward to building a stronger presence in these areas, in addition to introducing our healthy products to consumers in Chicago, Connecticut and Tallahassee for the first time."

Smoothie King plans to add 1,000 new franchised and corporate locations domestically over the next five years.
