Robeks, the smoothie and juice franchise with 11 locations in Northeast Ohio, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a week of deals at its first Ohio location at 1650 W. Market in Akron.
Dan Stanowick, who opened the store 10 years ago and serves as regional director for Robeks, says he looks forward to giving back to customers.
“Akron and Cleveland have embraced Robeks, and I’ve gotten to know a lot of wonderful people, customers, and franchise owners,” Stanowick says. “I like knowing that we have made it easy and convenient for people to eat healthy and live better. That’s what people are looking for, and we keep finding new ways to help.”
The 10th anniversary deals run December 16–21. On December 16, guest get 50 percent off any smoothie, bowl, juice, or frozen yogurt. On December 17, the brand will give out a free cookie, muffin, or pretzel with any medium or large smoothie or juice purchase. On December 18, it will offer a buy-one-get-one-free promotion for smoothies, bowls, juices, or frozen yogurt. On the last day, December 21, guests can get a free 12-oz. Fan Favorite or Classic Smoothie from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the unit will celebrate with games and prizes all day.
Robeks is continuing to grow throughout the region. Anne Randles, who owns a Robeks in Stow, recently partnered with One Love Yoga and Boutique to open her second Robeks inside a healthy lifestyle center in Kent.
Stanowick says the partnership points toward new opportunities for expansion for Los Angeles-based Robeks, which has more than 200 locations open or in development worldwide. Robeks has seen 23 consecutive months of same-store sales growth company-wide.
“Robeks can work well in nontraditional locations or in partnership with other healthy businesses,” Stanowick says. “We have great products and potential locations, great training and support, and great people.”
