CHICAGO and DALLAS, May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Grubhub, the nation's leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery marketplace, and Smoothie King, the world's leading smoothie brand, today announced an expanded partnership to grow digital orders. This builds upon the success of the Smoothie King Healthy Rewards app – available across more than 1,000 locations and powered by LevelUp – which enables Smoothie King to reach new customers on mobile and web and recognize their guests' healthy choices to Rule the Day™.
With more than 80 Smoothie King locations now on the Grubhub marketplace, both new and loyal Smoothie King customers in 17 states and the District of Columbia can fuel up and order their favorite blends on Grubhub for pickup or delivery.

"Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for guests to interact with our brand. By bringing Smoothie King onto the Grubhub marketplace, we're giving more guests the opportunity to enjoy our blends, even if they can't make it to one of our locations," said Wan Kim, chief executive officer at Smoothie King. "We've worked hard this year to align our loyalty program to each guest's individual health goals. This extended partnership with Grubhub helps us further our vision to be an integral part of our customers' health and fitness journeys."
