Smoothie Factory International has just unveiled a new concept store in Qatar created inside two repurposed shipping containers.

The store is located in Lusail, a master planned city located in the norther part of Qatar which includes marinas, residential areas, island resorts, commercial districts, luxury shopping and leisure facilities, and man made islands.

The Smoothie Factory Lusail store opening marks the brand’s second store in the Qatar market with a third and fourth store concurrently under construction and scheduled to open this February at Education City and this April at Al Udeid Air Base. A site for a fifth location is currently being selected.

The new dine-in and walk-up location is constructed of two storage containers put together at the halfway point and is around 450 square feet. The front side allows for car parking and dine-in seating while the back side faces a public walking trail where guests can order through a service window and enjoy their products outside.

The concept has given the brand an opportunity to expand into sites that were previously too small to sustain a more traditional store and can be delivered and installed in less time than traditional stores. The shipping container store was built off-site, which reduced construction waste, and use other reclaimed materials throughout the store design.

“With the rapid growth in consumers embracing healthy lifestyles in Qatar, we are very excited to launch our new Lusail container store,” said Joseph Cyriac, Operations Manager for M/S Royal Food Ventures W.L.L.
“The demand for healthy food choices is changing the way many food service establishments in Qatar do business. We feel Smoothie Factory Qatar is perfectly positioned to meet this growing demand. Our menu offers an innovative and balanced mix of juices, smoothies, juices cleanses, frozen yogurt, superfood bowls, and healthy foods. You really can’t find anything comparable in the Qatar market today”, said Joseph Cyriac.

“This is an exciting time in Smoothie Factory history as we unveil a new ‘container store’ design for our energized and expanding brand,” said James Villasana the President of Smoothie Factory International.

“The new Lusail store design demonstrates our ability to adapt to almost any store size and venue while keeping the initial investment costs in-line.
The next two stores opening soon in Education City and Al Udeid Air Base have their own unique design characteristics as well and we look forward to their grand openings in just a few months from now”, said James Villasana.

In addition, Smoothie Factory is currently developing an efficient and streamlined food truck design to provide as an option to its master franchise partners in various international markets. Food trucks have grown in popularity in the last few years with the help of social media and with different apps. The company plans to introduce the Smoothie Factory food truck design early next year.
