Where is the best location to place my Shake/Smoothie bar within my facility?
.Ideally, the walkway between the locker rooms and the exit is the perfect place, especially if it is combined with the front desk. Realistically, anywhere that is convenient for your customers is fine. We’ll use strategic marketing to drive them to your Shake/Smoothie Bar wherever you put it.
Will I need to contact the Health Department?
Yes. It is recommended that you do this as early-on in the process as possible, especially if you are doing a new build-out. We can (and would love to) help you with answers to questions and preparation each of the steps that will affect your business.
Do I need to have a stand-alone Shake/Smoothie Bar or can I make it part of my Check-In Desk?

That being said, we have tons of super-successful customers that operate solely from behind the Check-In Desk. Work with our team members to assess your space, your goals and your expectations.
