The owners of Northern Fruits Est are experienced in the hospitality industry and have a proven track record of success, which began over 10 years ago with the start of their Pizza Zain brand. In addition, they operate a foodservice distribution company servicing hotels and restaurants.
The company added Smoothie Factory to their hospitality portfolio by entering into a master franchise agreement to develop stores throughout the Central and Western Regions of KSA.
The new Smoothie Factory Tabuk store serves up the brand’s traditional menu favorites including real fruit smoothies, cold-pressed juices, authentic frozen yogurt, juice cleanse programs, and healthy lite foods. In addition, the stores’ menu category includes coffees and superfood bowls made with 100% natural acai. The combination of these menu offerings make Smoothie Factory unique in the market, allowing multiple revenue centers under one roof.
