It's a new dawn. It's a new day. It's a new year. And when it comes to new business opportunities in the Greater Pensacola area, 2018 is looking good.

In 2018, regional and national brands such as Smoothie King and Gloria Jean's Coffees plan to expand their reach to our area. But there's just one thing missing "" and that's an investor.

"We have a lot of exciting things coming for 2018," Smoothie King Franchise Development Manager Steve Shields said. "We've mapped out at least three different areas where we want to add new locations in the Pensacola area."

According to Shields, those areas are concentrated near Fairfield Drive, Mobile Highway and New Warrington Road in Pensacola.
