Smoothie King Seeks Agency

Smoothie King is looking for a shop to handle marketing and public relations, sources said last week. The Kenner, La.-based smoothie franchise, which has 339 locations in 34 states, currently handles the chores in-house. The budget is less than $1 million, according to the RFP; that does not include media, which is placed by franchisees. Work could include TV and radio, according to the RFP.
