Tropical Smoothie Cafe to Open 20 New Locations in Texas

Atlanta-based Tropical Smoothie Café announced that it signed a franchise development agreement with Glen Johnson to expand the brand’s presence throughout the state of Texas. Johnson will be opening 20 new cafés, the first of which opened earlier this month in Lubbock, Texas. Johnson joined the brand as a multi-unit developer in 2011 and currently has 22 open locations in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

This new agreement in Texas was fueled by Tropical Smoothie Café’s accelerated franchise development plans in 2017. On the heels of one of the strongest years in the company’s 20-year history, the brand successfully propelled its expansion and grew its presence in key markets nationwide, including Charleston, S.C.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Dallas; and southern California.

This year, the food and smoothie franchise plans to open 100 restaurants nationwide, and currently has franchise opportunities across the United States in markets such as Indianapolis; Nashville, Tenn.; Houston; Dallas; Cincinnati and Minneapolis, among others. By 2020, Tropical Smoothie Café plans to have 1,000 stores open across the country.
