Tropical Smoothie Cafe Franchise Opportunity
Founded in 1997, Tropical Smoothie Cafe stores sell a variety of premium quality, proprietary, real fruit smoothies, specialty sandwiches, gourmet wraps, salads, soups and coffee drinks, all of which are prepared on the premises of each store.
The estimated initial investment to open a Tropical Smoothie Cafe ranges from $164,500 to $398,000, which includes the franchise fee of $15,000. The royalty fee is 6% of gross sales, the national marketing fee is up to 2% of gross sales, and the local cooperative advertising contribution is 2% of gross sales, all of which are paid weekly.
The next 2 sections provide historical sales information for Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchised stores that were open at least one full year. Non-traditional locations (i.e. college campus or other captive locations) and seasonal locations were not included.
