Tse said she is looking forward to seeing what Chapel Hill and its community has to offer, as it’s the franchise’s first college town.
According to Smoothie King Chapel Hill’s Facebook page, the much-loved store is still up and running. However, passerbys on Franklin Street have taken note of the location’s empty storefront and barren interior since early this summer.
According to Smoothie King employee Lane Trogdon, Smoothie King isn’t gone for good – just from that location.
“We are actively looking for a new location,” Trogdon said.
Trogdon explained that Franklin Street’s accessibility was an issue for the store.
“Being in location on Franklin we relied on foot traffic only,” Trogdon said. “We have to have parking.”
