Tropical Smoothie Cafe Spreads the Sunshine this Summer

National Fast Casual Chain Introduces Smoothie to Raise Funds for Charity

DESTIN, Fla., May 26, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- With warm sunrays beaming and refreshing breezes flowing, Tropical Smoothie Cafe embraces summertime by spreading the sunshine with major contributions to a charitable cause.

Now through June 26, 2011, Tropical Smoothie Cafe offers customers an opportunity to purchase a great smoothie for a great cause. The national franchise company commits to donating a portion of the proceeds to their national charity partner, Camp Sunshine, from the sale of one of the top-selling smoothies, the Sunrise Sunset. With strawberries, pineapple, orange and mango blended to perfection, Tropical Smoothie Cafe treats its customers in every sip of the Sunrise Sunset smoothie.

On June 17, Tropical Smoothie Cafe will celebrate the 5th anniversary of National Flip Flop Day! National Flip Flop Day started back in 2007 as a celebration encouraging customers to kick off summer, and their shoes, by wearing a pair of flip flops. As a simple thank you to loyal customers, the first 500 people wearing flip flops at each cafe were given a free 24 oz. Jetty Punch smoothie. Following the holiday's inaugural year, Tropical Smoothie Cafe realized Nation Flip Flop Day was also the perfect opportunity to spread some sunshine to those in need. In 2008, the franchise company proudly announced a national charity partnership with the remarkable retreat known as Camp Sunshine.

Camp Sunshine, a haven in Casco, Maine for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, is a nonprofit that hosts families year-round to alleviate the stress and strain for the sick child and their family members. To date, the company has donated $770,000 to the cause and plans to raise over $1,000,000 by National Flip Flop Day. Nationwide, franchisees execute community fundraising events during the six weeks prior to National Flip Flop Day and donations are collected year-round at www.NationalFlipFlopDay.com.
