I find it fascinating when I come across a 'national' brand or a really popular/strong 'regional' brand I've never heard of, but it makes sense I hadn't heard of it, as Smoothie King says they aren't likely to franchise in cold places, as the stores don't tend to thrive in those environments. Since I live in a cold place where rain drips and coffee is king, that makes business sense to me.

This sign brought me great amusement as it was written in handwriting similar to my children's, which isn't saying much! But, it also brought me joy because not everything has to be perfect and flourished to be delightful.

There are a plethora of foam cups to be found in the least they're trying.
