Smoothie King History

Smoothie King was founded in 1973 in Kenner, Louisiana, by Steve Kuhnau. While working at an ice cream shop, Kuhnau discovered he was unable to enjoy the milk shakes and other treats because he was lactose intolerant. This inspired him to create similar items using fruit juice and frozen fruit that anyone could enjoy.

Today, the company has more than 600 franchised locations. Kuhnau sold the business to current CEO Wan Kim and Standard Chartered bank. Smoothie King has been named the #1 franchise by Entrepreneur magazine more than 17 times since it began operations.

Smoothie King had annual revenue in 2014 of $160 million. The company began international franchising with the first location opening in South Korea in 2003.

My son went to your store on Niforng Blvd in Columbia, MO on Friday 5/18 @ 12:46pm check #142. He requested a smoothine and he let them know he is allergic to coconut. When he got his shake he had pulled away and started drinking it and immediately went into an allergic reaction. He drives a commercial vehicle so this is even more of a problem. The girl that works there Kaylee Day, she knows my son personally and when I called to ask WHY coconut was in his drink she said oops must have made a mistake. She has the very same allergy as my son and is full aware of how sick it makes him. When I called both Columbia stores I was told it was “company policy” to just rinse the blenders out with WATER after use. This is crazy and very unclean. Every time those blenders are used they should be cleaned as if EVERY customer has allergies. Your policies are horrible at best. I have called the local health department and i will be calling state level and the attorney general’s office to report this. I am saddened that you do not take more caution when serving customer. And to top it off, Kaylee called her husband after my son left to tell him how sick it made him. How UN professional can one be. I will be letting everyone I talk to about Smoothie King policies and advising them to find somewhere else to go.

Smoothie king in Marion, Illinois refused service to anyone after 8:30 pm when they close at 9 pm. My friend and I attempted the drive thru at 8:34 pm and was ignored and just sat there for a few minutes so then we drove off and sat in the parking lot for a few minutes and watched as a few other people tried to go through the drive thru to order items. And then we heard someone from inside tell a customer through the drive thru “sorry we’re closed” My friend then called the store itself to ask what time they closed to see if there was a reason why they did this and the person who answered said “we close at 9 pm but start shutting everything down at 8:40”. And as we were sitting in the parking lot it was 8:38 and we saw an employee lock the doors when someone else pulled into the parking lot. After watching another person be ignored while trying to go through the drive thru. I attempted the drive thru again and waited until an employee said “sorry we’re closed” I then said “oh I thought you guys close at 9?” An employee said “we do but we start shutting everything down at 8:40” I then asked to speak to a manager and was ignored once again so then I just left because my friend and I had initially arrived their before 8:35 pm. I do understand wanting to get out as early as possible when closing a store because I too work at a fast food restaurant, but I found this behavior completely rude and I don’t believe any owner of an establishment would allow this behavior from employees.

I would like to inform you that the manager at the owner at the Prescott rd. store in Frisco Texas has taken the stance that he does not like not support the United States military..As a military mom,.I will not ,nor my family and friends support Smoothie King until this representative of your company offers an apology or is reprimanded. Please let him know we have educated ourselves. A post has gone viral on social media and will continue to be shared.

I experienced the same attitude with this owner. My younger brother who has been serving overseas is home to visit. We visit this store and received the worst reaction from a fellow American.

I recently got fired from Smoothie King, The owner is Brad Sorg and his manager is Kim Wiley. It was unfair to me because my co-workers stole. One would steal about 3-4 smart waters from the retail fridge. He would steal chocolate covered nuts and etc. but never got a consequence. When I got hired I received no training, therefore I had to train myself. I trained myself on the POS system, I trained myself on rotating strawberries, I trained myself on cleaning the front of house. They say I got fired because they said customers found me intimidating, that I argued with a customer, when that was one job I did not. I also fell on the clock, reported to my manager but she never filed an incident report. Her and Brad looked at the camera but never proceeded to file a report. AS well as Kim’s sister who is not on payroll was behind the counter making smoothie 4th of July weekend. In no uniform and this was on woodlawn station if I am not mistaken in Charlotte, NC. As well if it wasn’t for my cleaning and OCD problem the stores Sanitation score wouldn’t be a 99.5, it would still be a 95 or below. This is store #337, N. Tryon. I was one of the three who cleaned, cleaned up behind themselves, one of the three who actually did their job. Wasn’t on their phone because there was a no phone policy for the front of house. I just feel I was treated unfairly because I did what I was told. Did what I was asked to do. I was asked to train a new employee and she took as me bullying her. When you cant learn how to do things without doing it hands on, let alone its a job. And if you don’t want to work then quit. But i will not be the only employee cleaning up behind grown people. I watched people steal from work, said not one thing, and Brad always watched the cameras but never fired them. I felt like a slave as I watched everyone else do nothing but be on their phones. Im just confused on how you say and tell me I’m your second best employee but then I get fired randomly. As well as me saying we were out of certain items at a certain time of night so we could be out of work by 930 or 940 like Brad wanted, and I was not the only person to say we were out of certain items. Let alone I didn’t work every night. Brad said that it was an every night thing, so it wasn’t only me. Most people get a warning or write up and I got neither. A co worker left us on $5 Friday and was talking on his phone, didn’t get fired, didn’t get written up. I bet if any corporate office person walked in smoothie king and watched those videos, you would see how hard I worked I was the only one to scrub walls, scrub floors,and clean the front house refrigerator. It just doesn’t make sense that I got fired but someone who steal from the company is still working there. Not caring about the cameras because him (Brandon Sloan) had a sexual relationship with the manager Kim Wiley. He (Brandon Sloan) also sexually harrassed every female co worker he has had, including me. And there is no sense in telling my manager because she wouldn’t take any action. I know for a fact she wouldn’t.

Please do not go to, or ever apply for a job at Smoothie King on Veterans and David Drive in Metairie. They offered my son a job, gave him a date to show up for training, quoted him his salary, and told him what he needed to go buy to wear to work. He showed up on his start date for training and was told he couldn’t stay because they did not have a uniform shirt to give him and all he could do was watch an hour long training video then would have to leave. He was told by the manager that he would be in touch with his work schedule. The next phone call was to inform my son that he would not be able to have the job after all because the person who resigned decided to stay, my son quit his job that he had on the promise of expected employment with smoothie king. And now he has nothing. I wish there was some kind of legal action that could be taken. This is truly unprofessional behavior on the part of this company. We will never set foot in a Smoothie King again!!

I worked at smoothie king 959 in McComb, MS, from February of 2014 to November of 2016. In June of 2016 the store swapped ownership from Mr. Garrick Robert to Ms. Rebecca Thees. I left Smoothie King in November for other career options. My name while working there was Stephanie Regan, I am recently married, hence the name change. The reason I am commenting here is because in January I recieved my W2 from Garrick via mail and was unaware I would be receiving another from Rebecca. I thought that my yearly wages would be in one W2 from both owners. That is not the case, however. I recently just found out from an employee at store 959 that I had a W2 at the store. The date was May 3rd that I found this out. I’m wanting to complain about the owner because by law she should have mailed me my W2 from her by January 31, considering I am no longer employed there and have not been since November 1st. Now I am having to do an amended tax return and pay my state taxes back because she did not have the decency to eother mail me my W2 or call me to let me know I had one. This is a huge inconvenience and I would like corporate to know about the fact that a franchise owner did not send a W2 out for one of their former employees.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.
Thank you very much.

The owner of the new tampa smoothie king is very awful. He has cussed myself and others out and allows his employees to be disrespectful. No one wears a hat or hair net, it isn’t sanitary either. His name is Earl lanoue.

The manager by the name of Katrina,at least that’s what her name tag said has a nasty attitude towards me every time I come to that location. I use to date her son’s father years ago and she still can’t get over it. I just don’t like her disrespect when I order, I’m a paying customer too.

My daughter is what is called a high functioning Autistic person. When Tori was hired Mona Edwards & Major Rolls new she was Autistic & did not drive a car (I take and pick her up) Also, Tori was hired for the Buffalo store NOT the Sahara store.
She worked at SK from 2/2016-1/2017 when she was fired because the owner Major J Rolls wanted her to go work at the W Sahara store all this week 3-10pm. Tori already had a schedule for the Buffalo Store for this week 1/15/17-1/20/17, but Major Rolls lost yet another employee due to the below minimum wage & verbal abuse! When I said no it is too far for me to drive at night it is 34 miles round trip & I am night blind! Tori relayed that to her manager Sally Washington, she said she would let Major Rolls know & she would call Tori back with her firm schedule. No call came so on Monday I told my daughter to ask Sally when she was supposed to work this week. This is the TEXT reply my daughter received from Sally Washington on Monday 16th, of January: YES SHE WAS FIRED IN A TEXT!!!
Tori: Hey Sally. Do you have any idea of the schedule I’ll have since I cannot go to Sahara?
Sally: Major Rolls told me to tell Tori she routinely failed to meet our standards despite being talked to about it numerous times. We could not keep you at 925 with all the issues but gave you an option to continue working at 1067 but you refused to go. So i was instructed to terminate your employment..
You can return your shirts . and i will have jenn bring me your last check
Thank you.

Sally: Also dont forget tori.. 24 hrs to bring back the store key..ok thank you honey
Toris phone text that “I wrote back:”
As the Mom of a special needs child I am applauded at the lack of fair leadership from the owner & management of this Smoothie King!
I will be calling the labor board in the morning to report Smoothie King for not paying a fair minimum wage & give them pay check stubs from several fired employees (they all have money owed to them too!).
I will also give copies of the paycheck to the corporate Headquarters in Metairie, La

Oh and the tips that where pocketed…..

I wanted to do this months ago but Tori loved working there & was afraid. As you can imagine I am very good at defending my daughter since she is unable to do that for herself!! I will have all of SK’s items returned tomorrow by 3pm

Shame, shame on you Major Jennifer Rolls!

Sally: Please direct / refer any and all other contact to smoothie king direct phone .
As this is my personal phone thank you

Tori’s msg I wrote back:
I am sorry.
I assumed since you fired Tori in this text it would be appropriate for me to respond to it in kind. Will not happen again. Tina
(End of text msg’s)
If Tori routinely failed to meet their standards why did Major J Rolls elevate Tori to a Lead & had HER training all the new employee’s & gave her a key to the store??? This was not Tori’s idea. In fact she did not want to do it, but Major Rolls said she had to!

When I drove Tori to SK at 2:45pm on 1/16/17, I filmed her putting the key in the front door lock and locking and open the door. I also filmed Rhian, & Monique as Tori returned all shirts & Her badge, & key. This way no one could say it was the wrong key and deducted 160.00 from her final check. This way Tori has witnesses on film.
Neither Sally Washington or Major J Rolls were there to take Tori’s items, and give Tori her final check. As of today 1/19/2017 Tori has still not been paid!
I want Smoothie King’s HQ to know what this Franchise owner is doing! As it does not reflect positively on the Smoothie King Brand.

As I wrote Sally in the text I have filed a complaint with the Department of Labor & the ADA EEOC. Other employee’s are doing the same so that they can get the money that should have been in their paychecks originally!

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you,
M Tina Scott

Dear Sir:

I am Walter Jagers, employee number 00000031. Will you please assist me in receiving my last paychecks from Smoothie King 959, located at 1611 Delaware Ave, McComb, Ms 36948. I was an employee at this location until May 13, 2016.

I have attempted to contact the owner, Garrett at 985 327-9032 on numerous occasions but he will not answer my calls or return my calls to advise where my checks are and when I will receive them.

On June 18, 2016, I contacted the manager of the store while employed there, named Stephanie and was given the run around. She stated my checks were sent to the store. and by law she was suppose to mail them to me at the address in my file. However, she stated she did not know whether the address in my file was correct. Even, though all paperwork was completed prior to hiring. Instead, she placed my checks in a folder in the office. When the business was sold to New Owner, Rebecca, Garret took the folder with my checks in the folder. She is unable to contact him and no one has contacted me to pay for my hours worked at Smoothie King which is illegal.

I spoke to Rebecca the new owner. She has not done anything to get checks either. She has stated since June 18, 2016, that they are working on the issue. She stated she will call payroll, get the amount of my earnings and have checks reissued. That has been over three weeks. How difficult is that if when you are continually paying current employees? I feel that nothing is being done to get my last wages earned from Garret, Stephanie or Rebecca. Please contact me directly at 216 544 8881 to advise when I will receive checks for last wages earned by Friday, July 15, 2016. Thank you.

I will await your response. What the owner has done is illegal and I would like to receive wages earned. Thanks
