Lane Trogdon and partners, who operate Smoothie King at 415 S. College Road, plan to open a second location at 2326 S. 17th St. the first week in July.
Trogdon signed the largest-ever franchise agreement with Smoothie King in 2015, with an agreement to open a total of 55 stores by 2020. He currently also operates stores in Chapel Hill and Norfolk, Virginia.
The new location, a 1,400-square-foot space in Canterwood Center, will have several hi-top tables, outdoor seating, free-Wi-Fi and a drive-thru.
“People are looking for convenience, so we believe the drive-thru will serve us well in this location,” Trogdon said.
The new Smoothie King location will be open from 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
