This Smoothie King has received a 58 in the past 6 months on a health inspection. I heard that they hired a manager after that happened but he ended up leaving because of the owner being so difficult to work for. Speaking of the owner, I had a run in with him one time and he had beer on his breath and was red faced and glossy eyed like he'd been sitting in the back slamming back cold ones. I also spoke to a manager there (this was in the past couple of days) and he also had alcohol on his breath. I noticed while I was there that there were flies and gnats everywhere, there was an odd smell coming from behind the counter. There were expired retail food products for sale on the sales floor.
I asked for a smoothie with no bananas and asked for a blender to be sanitized because I am allergic, I still had a reaction anyways. This is the second time that this happened to me at this place and I know a couple of other people with food allergies who had issues with them. There was also a time that one of the workers was putting over 300 mg of caffeine in every persons smoothie without telling them, this could have killed somebody who was on heart medication. I have also seen employees outside smoking cigs and then come right in and make smoothies without washing their hands. All their "fruit" is from concentrate and is not healthy. And the icing on the cake, the day I had my allergic reaction due to them, I found mold in my smoothie!!!! MOLD!!!!!!
All in all, why would you risk putting yourself in danger by getting a product here when you can go to plenty of other places in Knoxville and a lot of them are not corporate machines ran by puppet idiots like Smoothie Kings owner who preaches being healthy but is about 60 pounds overweight.
NOT WORTH IT!!!!!
