TRUSSVILLE — Tropical Smoothie Cafe will open its new Trussville location the first week of April.
The location will be in a strip development at 2050 Gadsden Highway.
Blake Thomas with Southpace Properties represented the landlord in acquiring Tropical Smoothie as a tenant. Jordan Williams with Retail Specialists represented the franchisee. Tropical Smoothie Café, LLC will join Metro Diner, Chicken Salad Chick, Orangetheory Fitness, Taco Mama, Great American Cookie Co. & Marble Slab Creamery, Wrapsody Boutique, and CSM Champion Sports Medicine.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe serves more than smoothies and juices. Customers can also choose from a variety of salads, wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and quesadillas. The franchise promises “quality meats, fresh produce, and flavorful sauces.” Just this year, it was ranked #14 overall in the Smoothie/Juice category by Franchise 500.
The smoothie destination all started on a beach in Destin, Florida, and now has more than 900 locations nationwide.
“We started as a destination for flavor, and it’s a proud heritage that we continue today,” the franchise’s website states. “We are guided by a simple belief: when you eat better, you feel better.”
Customers can join Tropical Rewards to get a point for every dollar spent. For every $55, you get a $5 reward.
The franchise also gives back by partnering with Camp Sunshine to help children with life-threatening illnesses and their families have memorable experiences. To date, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has donated more than $7 million to the cause.
