Tropical Smoothie Cafe Franchise Opens 500th Location in Westland, Michigan

Tropical Smoothie Cafe has been experiencing tremendous growth. One location in particular is a big milestone for the brand. Franchise Owners, Salem Najjar and John Abuaita, are opening their first Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Westland, Michigan, marking the brand’s 500th location.


“We are thrilled to join forces with such a dynamic brand. Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a much healthier alternative to most of the fast casual restaurants currently in the market, and we are eager to introduce this concept to the Westland community,” said Najjar.


The duo plans to open at least six additional locations throughout the greater Detroit area. “Detroit’s economy has been on the upswing, and we’re thrilled to be expanding into a market with substantial opportunity for economic development. We look forward to continuing to grow throughout the area over the next several years and make it easier for residents to have access to affordable, healthier alternatives,” Najjar said.


Grand opening celebrations on Monday, June 13, will include free samples and giveaways, as well as deals on food and smoothies. Starting at 10 AM, the first 106 guests in line will receive raffle tickets for a chance to win free smoothies for a year, an Apple TV, and gaming systems. The restaurant will also host a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4 PM attended by the City of Westland Mayor, William Wild.


Speaking about the brand’s growth, CEO Mike Rotondo said, “Over the last five years, we’ve grown from a regional, 200-unit chain to a national, award-winning fast casual brand and I couldn’t be more proud of our Franchise Owners and Corporate Support Team for driving this success.”
