Today, Smoothie King is loading 700 of its stores with iPad point-of-sale systems that eventually will be used to pilot mobile payments and order-ahead features.
Portland, Oregon-based digital creative agency Swift Collective has acquired Los Angeles-based public relations agency Saeger Media Group for an undisclosed sum. The combined company, announced Monday, will operate under the name Swift, and employ about 80 staffers.
Smoothie King has a new logo and a new top marketer. The fast-food juice chain, which has some 651 locations globally—524 of them in the U.S.—revealed its newly redesigned brand icon, the first in 20 years, after a year-long process working with Dublin, Ohio-based design agency WD Partners.
