Tropical Smoothie Café has come a long way since our first franchise opened in Tallahassee, Florida back in 1997. We sought to give our customers a place where they could relax while enjoying real fruit smoothies. By 1999, we’d expanded our menu to contain a wide range of healthy food options that perfectly complimented our smoothies. In 2000, we officially established the Tropical Smoothie Café name. In 2005, we updated the environment of our cafes to reflect a tropical vacation – a get-away from the everyday hustle and bustle. In 2006 we opened our 200th Café in Virginia Beach, VA. In 2007 we celebrated our 10-year anniversary and we also stared our own holiday – National Flip Flop Day! In 2011, we opened our 300th Café in Fort Meyers, FL. Today, customers continue to fall in love with the Tropical Smoothie Café Experience as we expand into 35 states and growing.
