Tropical Smoothie Café, the leading fast casual cafe concept known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, recently announced it’s strongest year of growth in the brand’s 19-year history.
The award-winning smoothie franchise reported same-store sales of 11.25 percent — its sixth consecutive quarter of double-digit positive comp sales — and signed franchise agreements to develop nearly 200 new cafés across the U.S., including about two dozen locations in Southern California. The brand’s first café in California opened in Lake Forest in mid-january.
Franchisee RanaKaran “R.K.” Sidhu is leading the expansion in Orange County. The new restaurant is located at 23841 El Toro Road, Suite C – E127. This is part of the brand’s aggressive franchise development plans for the state, which includes future locations in Rancho Cucamonga, Foothill Ranch, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Ladera Ranch, Fountain Valley, Orange and Rancho Santa Margarita.
This year, the food and smoothie franchise plans to exceed 550 restaurants nationwide. The brand currently has franchise opportunities across the U.S. in markets such as Miami, Philadelphia, Boston, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta, Columbus and Charlotte, N.C., among others. By 2018, Tropical Smoothie Café plans to have 800 stores open across the U.S.
