The opening of the new Smoothie King on Horner Boulevard near Biscuitville will likely come in the next two weeks.

Franchise owner Kevin Butler tells us the store will open in the first two weeks of March. He and his staff are currently “tweaking the store” and making preparations for a final inspection and training from the Smoothie King corporate office.

He expects to employ around 12 to 15 people, and as of late February was still hiring.

Butler said the store has everything from health-based shakes to fit your diet to sweetened shakes, and even a keto shake with 45 grams of protein.
