A Smoothie King will open in the former Tutti Fruitti Frozen Yogurt location in the Vista at 1205 Lincoln St. on Friday, Sept. 16. This will be the third franchised location for local operator Dewayne Bohannon in less than a year and a half.

Bohannon says the challenge of serving the needs of both a college crowd and business consumers was what drew him to the Vista area. He also owns two other Smoothie King storefronts, one on Forest Drive and another on Lake Murray Boulevard in Irmo. A fourth location is in the works in the Sandhills area as well.

“We are here to educate the consumer on what he have to offer,” Bohannon says. “We offer meal replacement type smoothies, smoothies with a purpose. We have breakfast smoothies, coffee blends, ones with protein, and simple ones like strawberry banana.”

This Friday, a special on 32-ounce smoothies is available for $5 at the Vista location.
