Tropical Smoothie Cafe, also referred to as Tropical Smoothie, or Tropical, is a restaurant franchise in the United States. Tropical Smoothie Cafe operates more than 1150 locations nationwide.
Tropical Smoothie began as a smoothie shop in 1993 along the panhandle of Florida. Tropical Smoothie Franchise Development Corporation was founded in 1997 in Destin, Florida, and the first franchised store opened in 1998 in Tallahassee, Florida. Tropical Smoothie Cafe is currently headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
In 1999, they introduced a line of food items including sandwiches and wraps. As more locations opened, the individual Cafes redesigned their store decor to offer a beach house theme with bright white walls, an open kitchen concept, vibrant colors, and tropical artwork.
Tropical Smoothie Cafes sales are made up of 50% smoothie sales and 50% food sales system-wide. In May 2013, Tropical Smoothie Cafe began offering a vegan, non-GMO meat substitute called Beyond Meat. Beyond Meat is made of a blend of fava bean protein, pea protein, flours, and fiber.
