Best New Chain Prototype

Honorable Mention: Smoothie King

Architect: Trey Lucas Architecture, Decatur, Ga.
Contractor: MAK Construction, McDonough, Ga.

Smoothie King’s 800-square-foot prototype has a patio and two drive-thru lanes including one dedicated to online orders and third-party deliveries. The judges felt the “efficient prototype” allows the chain “to be in more locations, which is a good move for the brand.”
