About - Smoothie King

In July of 2012, a company Wan created, with backing from Standard Chartered Private Equity and National Pension service of the Republic of Korea, bought Smoothie King from Steve Kuhnau, who had founded the company in New Orleans 39 years earlier. Steve had wanted to solve his chronic food allergies by creating smoothies full of vitamins, nutrients, minerals and fruit. Steve knew he was passing the company over to someone who shared his passion for the Smoothie King brand. Something that drew Wan to Smoothie King all those years ago was what the company stood for; a healthy alternative to fast food.
