Tropical Smoothie Café
Get the Solutions, Strength & Support You Need to Succeed
Tropical Smoothie Café was founded in 1997 in Destin, FL. We currently have over 325 locations in 38 States and are headquartered in Atlanta, GA. Our business model is unique in that we offer both all natural, real fruit smoothies and a variety of fresh, flavorful food – in essence, two concepts in one! Our initial Café development costs are lower because we do not utilize deep fryers, grills or hooding systems in our health conscious concept. Our balanced business model (50% Food Sales / 50% Smoothie Sales) allows us to drive higher gross sales and service all dayparts (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack times and dessert). Our high quality products allow us to achieve an average check over US$8.25. Come see why our motto "Eat Better-Feel Better" keeps our customers coming back for more and translates to a great business model for our franchisees. In fact, in 2011, the top 50% of our Café’s had average gross sales in excess of US$600,000!*
*Based on Calendar year 2011. 79 of 245 or 32.2% of the Café’s gained or surpassed this sales level. Your results may differ. There is no assurance that you will do as well.
