The trend for healthier eating has become even more of an expectation than an exception. And, smoothies as a meal replacement continue to be sought-after, any time of day, for a healthy lifestyle. At Tropical Smoothie Cafe, 60% of our sales are from crowd favorite smoothies. To say our blenders play a big role in our business is an understatement.
We offer an interactive and upbeat experience and the noise of the blenders helps reinforce the fast-paced lifestyle of our guests. And, because we want to create the best and safest environment, some Cafe locations are also testing color-coded blenders to separate the different kinds of smoothies, and help contain potential allergens.
From classic to superfood smoothies, guests can pick their favorite tropical flavor and customize their drink with add-in and supplements to boost their beverage. By listening to guests, thinking outside the box and staying ahead of industry trends, we’ve been able to set ourselves apart from the competition. We push the limits of our space by developing healthier nods while incorporating unique twists and tastes.
Meeting the plant-based demand
Our better-for-you menu is balanced with food featuring a variety of flatbreads, wraps, quesadillas, sandwiches, bowls and even breakfast with a tropical twist. As plant-based offerings continue to grow in demand, we continue to be a leader in this space. For Franchise Owners that means we always have a pulse on what people want to help them drive growth and success.
Keeping it simple and smart
What really distinguishes Tropical Smoothie Cafe from the competition is our balanced mix of food and smoothies, which allows you to capitalize on multiple dayparts: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, 3rd party delivery and catering. That mix helps to continuously drive up our average ticket.
