(La Porte, IN) - A new chain beverage maker has just opened in La Porte. Smoothie King began serving the public today at its new location off Pine Lake Ave. at NewPorte Landing.
Taylor Haney, a district manager for nine Smoothie King locations in Indiana and Illinois, said various smoothies like a banana boat are offered at the new site.
“If you’re not feeling fruity, we also have chocolate and peanut butter as well,” Haney said.
Protein smoothies are also on the menu for people with such cravings following a workout.
A long line of customers waited for their orders in the drive-through service lane.
“It’s been non-stop so far. It’s nice to be here,” Haney said.
Mayor Tom Dermody was among the local dignitaries attending a ribbon cutting today at noon.
