Tropical Smoothie Cafe joins the exclusive club of restaurant brands with a four-digit location count this week with the grand opening of its newest — and 1,000th systemwide — cafe in Flower Mound, Texas.



The milestone comes at a time when the company is experiencing record growth and is on pace to open 130 new franchised locations in 2021. So far this year, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has signed
agreements for an additional 249 future franchised locations, adding to an already extensive pipeline of future commitments.

These agreements position the brand nicely in its progress toward its goal of 1,500 cafes by the end of 2024. “I like to say we’re the biggest brand you’ve never heard of,” said Charles Watson, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Cafe LLC. “We’ve been quietly crushing sales and growth records, thanks to our
incredible franchisees who have a passion for this brand and want to open more locations across our target markets.”




Tropical Smoothie Cafe is designed for growth, and its franchisees benefit from an award-winning franchise offering and a business model with multiple dayparts built into the mix. A key differentiator from other smoothie concepts is the brand’s extensive food menu that includes made-to-order wraps, flatbreads, sandwiches, bowls and quesadillas, plus sales-driving LTOs such as the hearty, healthy Green Goddess Flatbread that comes with a choice of chicken, shrimp or plant-based proteins.
