A drop in disposable income and escalating competition depressed demand for products in the Juice and Smoothie Bars industry over the past five years. In particular, competition increased from fast-food chains and frozen yogurt shops, many of which recently added smoothies and juices to their menus. In response, small juice and smoothie bars have been franchising in order to consolidate marketing costs. Over the coming years, these trends are forecast to continue, with franchising remaining a key driver of industry growth.

At the same time, companies will downsize stores to cut on costs and reduce the number of employees at each establishment. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has added a report on the Juice & Smoothie Bars industry to its growing industry report collection.
