Eat better. Feel better. It’s our mantra.
At a time when there’s more focus than ever on healthier food options and active lifestyles, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is perfectly positioned to become #1 in our category:
- A fun, friendly concept with a better business model with a smoothie and food menu that supports all dayparts and promotes a $8.75/person average ticket
- On-staff Chef and Nutritionist to develop menu items with big, bold flavors that customers crave
- Over 37% increase in comp sales over the last 5 years
- Loyal customer base at 700+ locations coast-to-coast — 345+ opened in the last 5 years
- Ranked in Franchise Times’ Top 200, ranked #71 in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, featured as one of QSR‘s Best Franchise Deals, and jumped 11 spots in 2018, reaching #14 on Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious ranking of the smartest-growing brands
So perhaps it is no surprise that in 2017, the top 50% of our franchisees had average gross sales of $873,254.*
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 a higher quality of staff. Because our Cafes are easier to operate, you can use your skills to connect with your customers and mentor a staff that’s young, high-energy, and passionate about the brand.
It’s not a position. It’s a passion.
Our franchisees understand the importance of incredible customer service and community outreach. They value innovation, creativity, and a competitive mindset. We play to win, and we have fun doing it.
