Corporate Foodservice Professional Becomes Tropical Smoothie Franchise Owner
April 3, 2017
Mike Shattuck has spent 43+ years in the foodservice industry. Holding titles from consultant to President, he has worked with franchisor teams and has run international franchise operations. Wanting to focus more on leadership and team development, he turned to franchising. While starting his own concept would have provided the freedom from corporate America he was looking for, he believed in the power of a franchise system to drive the development of a brand.
Prioritizing great product, strong positioning, and a shared value system, Shattuck’s research and networking led him to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise opportunity. Further convinced by the brand’s economic success, leadership in the industry, and commitment to making their franchise partners successful, his validation only grew as he progressed through the franchise process.
With six locations now in development, Shattuck’s experience has been helpful throughout the process. “Having been a senior member of franchisor teams and running international franchised operations, I have perspective from both sides of the relationship. This, along with my extensive foodservice experience, will be a key contributor to the success of my Cafes. I can’t wait to hit the ground running when my doors open!”
