Craig and Dianne LeMieux have two pieces of advice for anyone looking to own their own franchise business: Follow the system, and Never quit, no matter what comes up. Their perseverance has served them well as they continue to add to their Tropical Smoothie Cafe portfolio, currently at 50 cafes, with 39 more in development.

Their business philosophy has also sustained them in their role as Area Developers for Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Michigan and Ohio, and more recently in Colorado.

“We believe in the brand. And that drives us to continually expand our business,” said Craig.

“The LeMieux’s never-say-die approach to business echoes our own,” said Tropical Smoothie Cafe CEO Mike Rotondo. We say that Tropical Smoothie Cafe plays to win, and right now, we are winning big.”

This year, the company plans to open 100 restaurants nationwide and currently has franchise opportunities across the U.S. in markets such as Indianapolis, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Cincinnati, and Minneapolis, among others. By 2020, Tropical Smoothie Cafe plans to have 1,000 stores open across the U.S.
