Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to make a smoothie on a smoothie bike?
20 - 30 seconds. The smoothie is powered by the rider. If the rider pedals faster, the smoothie gets ready sooner.
How many drinks can be served per hour?
Our most skilled smoothie bike operators can serve up to 100 - 9oz* drinks per hour, which is the service capacity for each smoothie bike. We can bring more smoothie bikes and operators to meet larger per-hour requirements. We love serving all groups, big or small.
*12oz or larger cup sizes affect the number of smoothies served per hour.
How many smoothie bikes can you bring to the event?
We can bring as many smoothie bikes to your event as you need. If you need more than 2 bikes, we require a 3 weeks advance notice.
How far do you travel?
We are happy to travel to events anywhere in Washington State. We have a small travel fee for any events outside the cities of Seattle, Bellevue, and Redmond.
Do you sell by the cup?
We only offer hosted catering services, and therefore are not equipped to collect cash or credit card payments at events. If you would like to sell drinks by the cup, you are welcome to have a representative from your event sell the drinks to offset the cost of the bike smoothies catering service.
Do you offer alcoholic drinks?
We do not have a liquor permit, so we're not allowed to serve alcohol. However, our clients are allowed to provide their own alcohol and mix in our blenders. The alcohol additions should be verified unopened/sealed at the beginning of the event. If you have questions about this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the bike smoothies catering requirements?
We bring everything we will need to serve bike smoothies at your event. All we need from you is a 10-foot by 10-foot space in order to operate. Our entire setup can easily fit in an elevator. We will also need you to validate or cover parking costs for up to two vehicles.
Can you accommodate outdoor events?
Yes. For outdoor events, we require a covering for our setup & operators in case of inclement weather or heavy exposure to the sun. We have 10 x 10 pop up tents available for rental if needed. We do NOT need any electricity to power our bike smoothies. 🙂
How can the bike smoothies catering service be customized?
We love customizing our service to be unique to your event! Please let us know about your customization requirements, and we will collaborate with you. Here are a few examples of how we have customized events in the past:
- Custom drink menu in the colors or theme of the event.
- Serving your favorite smoothie flavors (in addition to our standard ones).
- Branding the cups with your event logo or monogram.
- Custom t-shirts for our smooth(ie) operators with your branding.
- Custom banners or other signage.
- Painting/decorating the bikes to match your event colors.
