Our nutritious food and smoothies are fueling healthy growth.

The huge demand for healthier food choices drives business to our doors. What keeps people coming back is the Tropical Smoothie Cafe experience. It’s our unique combination of irresistible food, a cool beachy vibe, and fun, friendly service.

What clearly distinguishes Tropical Smoothie Cafe from the competition is our balanced mix of smoothies and food, serving multiple dayparts: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snack and multiple revenue streams like dine-in, drive-thru, delivery, and catering. That mix helps drive our average ticket sales and average net revenues of $982,486 for the top 50% of our Franchise Owners.*

*Top 50% of Cafes. Based on calendar year 2019, 120 of 326, or 37%, of the Cafes gained or surpassed this sales level. This information appears in Item 19 of our Franchise Disclosure Document. Your results may differ. There is no assurance that you will do as well.

We keep it simple.

What we serve is equally as appealing as our numbers. Our food is fresh and delicious, and our food prep is clean and simple. There’s no baking, fryers, or hoods—just high-powered blenders and a convection oven. It’s a better environment to work in and can help you attract and retain higher-quality team members. Because our Cafes are easier to operate, you can use your skills to connect with your guests and mentor a staff that’s young, high-energy, and passionate about the brand.

“I was a sales and marketing VP for technology companies for 18 to 20 years. For me, becoming a Franchise Owner was really a lifestyle choice, lifestyle change. As I evaluated Tropical Smoothie Cafe, I felt it was a brand that the values aligned, the product appealed, and I would feel great about representing it to my friends, family and my neighbors, as I started opening up cafes in the area that I've lived in for nearly 20 years.”

- Mike Haines, Multi-Unit Franchise Owner
