ATLANTA - Sept. 22, 2015 // PRNewswire // -- Tropical Smoothie Cafe, the leading fast casual cafe concept known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, announced today the selection of FoodLogiQ, the leading food safety, traceability and sustainability Software as a Service company, to assist with the chain's food safety and traceability initiatives.

"Today's consumer is very intrigued about what is in their food and beverages - the nutritional content, the ingredients, where it comes from, and more. At Tropical Smoothie Cafe we offer our guests bold, innovative products with a better-for you-twist," said Mike Rotondo, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Cafe. "Working with FoodLogiQ, we will be able to provide complete information they want about our ingredients."

Using FoodLogiQ's Connect platform, Tropical Smoothie Cafe will be able to track all food and beverage items being served in its nearly 435 locations, from the fresh kale in the Island Green Smoothie to the all natural grilled chicken in the Chipotle Chicken Club Flatbread. Tracing from their suppliers all the way to the cafe allows Tropical Smoothie Cafe to keep track of each and every product being served, while enabling each location to act quickly if an issue comes up with product quality or safety.

"Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a terrific partner for FoodLogiQ. A fast-growing restaurant chain, they are on track to make 2015 the most successful year in company history," said Dean Wiltse, CEO of FoodLogiQ.
