Tropical Smoothie Cafe Franchise Keeps its Eye on the Ball and Watches the Wins Pile up.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe has recently received a number of accolades from franchise industry publications for being one of the best franchises across multiple categories. These rankings are based on a number of factors, including sales and percent of growth in the year preceding the publications. Last year, a notable accomplishment was our 2017 sales figure of $393M, a 35% jump from the previous year.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s Interim CEO and Chief Development Officer, Charles Watson, a former college football player, is so proud of the accolades the franchise company has received, each of which are now featured in our websites virtual “Trophy Case.”

“We tell our Franchise Owners that Tropical Smoothie Cafe plays to win. Our prevailing goal is to make sure that our franchisees are profitable and happy in doing what they love. We know that franchisees who are engaged and following the system, and having success, will become the multi-unit operators of tomorrow,” said Watson.


Our most recent accolades include:

Ranked #7 in Nation’s Restaurant News Top 10 Beverage-Snack Chains list

Ranked #25 in 2018 QSR’s 50 Chains with the Most Loyal Customers list

Ranked #177 in 2018 Franchise Times’ Top 200 list

Ranked #8 in 2018 Forbes’ Best Franchises

Ranked #2 in the Smoothies/Juices segment in Entrepreneur’s Top Food Franchise 2018 list

Ranked #107 on Nation’s Restaurant News Top 200 list


Professional football player and multi-unit Franchise Owner Everette Brown is a great example of what Watson talks about. Brown ties in his sports background with being successful in business because, like in football, you have to be quick on your feet and stay competitive at all times. His play-to-win attitude is what is driving his growth. And the same can be said for Tropical Smoothie Cafe, whose top Franchise Owners are reaping the benefit of the brand’s average gross sales of $873,254.*
