Charlotte (NC) — Smoothie King, the world’s leading smoothie brand, will further its mission to inspire young athletes to live healthy and active lifestyles with help from the Charlotte Independence professional soccer team and the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club, one of the nation’s largest youth soccer academies.
Through the new relationship, Charlotte Independence will introduce Smoothie King’s Clean Blend recipes, focusing on delicious smoothies with high-quality ingredients and organic whole fruits and vegetables. The smoothies are custom blended to inspire a healthy and active lifestyle, with no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, gluten, trans-fats or hydrogenated oils, and zero grams of added sugar in many blends.
“Smoothie King’s commitment to provide high-quality, nutritious, and great-tasting smoothies are a great addition to overall training goals for our athletes,” said Tim Schuldt, Chief Revenue Officer for the Charlotte Independence. “Through this partnership, our goal is to support young athletes to lead healthy and active lifestyles, to achieve their fitness goals on and off the field.”
The Smoothie King Charlotte Franchisees are thrilled to partner with the Charlotte Independence and newly formed youth club and look forward to serving athletes and their families in their fitness and training routines. The partnership runs through the 2020 season and provides Smoothie King the opportunity to have category priority as the USL Championship team readies a move to their new home, the completely modernized and rebuilt American Legion Memorial Stadium located in Uptown Charlotte.
