Tropical Smoothie Cafe is really two brands in one with 50% of sales in real fruit smoothies and 50% in food, such as wraps, salads, sandwiches and salads. This balanced business model leads to higher gross sales as we are able to service all day-parts (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack times, dessert, late night). We also have lower development costs as we do not utilize grills deep fryers, hooding systems or bake bread, this is also great for our healthier appeal with consumers.
