Smooth-n-Groove all started with Keon Davis who had a vision of being self-sufficient. He has kept the primary goal of implementing his competitive spirit with his natural leadership skills to make his dreams come true. Mr. Davis was able to do just that when he discovered his desire to entice peoples’ interest in their heath by opening a smoothie and juice bar with a creative edge “Smooth N Groove”. The concept and creativity started with his logo design; as a child Mr. Davis loved the California Raisins, so it was only right that the mascots for his business be a modern day twist on just that, garnished with the big black glasses.
Smooth N Groove was in the works of becoming a reality and not an idea, so when the time for developing an official menu came Mr. Davis wanted to make his customers excited and ready to Groove when they read his menu, which is why all his smoothies from the “Running Man” to the “ Fox Trot” are named to do just that, Dance! Mr. Davis’s decision to place Smooth N Grove inside a workout facility was a way for him to fulfill his main goal; in that location he was already surrounded by those that wanted to better themselves and always keeps an open door to anyone trying to start on that path.
Now Smooth N Groove has 4 location including 2 storefronts and 2 food trucks, where one of the trucks and stores are located on the campus of AUBURN UNIVERSITY, and inside Walmart. This opportunity has giving Smooth N Groove some national attention, from alumni to all of the athletes, and anybody involved with the university.
As a nominee for the 2015 BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGIZINE Entrepreneur of the Year award, and also winning the 2015 NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE Small Business Matters Elevator Pitch Competition Keon Davis has made a huge impression on the business leaders of this generation.
