Tropical Smoothie Café, the leading fast casual café concept known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, announced the signing of 77 franchise agreements in the first and second quarters of 2015 as the brand continues its aggressive, nationwide expansion. Additionally, the sandwich and smoothie franchise reported year-to-date same-store sales of more than 12 percent.
“This year is on track to be our most successful in recent company history,” said Mike Rotondo, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Café. “Our balanced mix of smoothies and food continue to drive sales for our franchisees and recent limited-time offers are driving traffic, resulting in strong same-store sales that far outperform our competitors in the smoothie and fast-casual industries. All of this is contributing to our franchise growth as more small business owners want to be part of Tropical Smoothie Café’s success.”
Tropical Smoothie Café currently has nearly 170 cafés under development and slated to open in the next two years. The brand currently has franchise opportunities across the U.S. in markets such as Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, Texas, as well as Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, Calif., among others.
