Local Small Business Owners Open First Tropical Smoothie Cafe In Seattle Market

New Fast Casual Restaurant Opens Today in Downtown Bellevue, Wash.

February 19, 2015 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Tropical Smoothie Cafe, the leading fast casual cafe concept known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, announced the opening of its first restaurant in the Seattle market. Located in the center of Bellevue, Wash., at 10445 NE 4 Street, the new Tropical Smoothie Cafe is owned and operated by small business owners Helen and Ming Yu.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe offers a variety of healthy smoothies and freshly prepared salads, tacos, wraps, sandwiches, and flatbreads. Guests also can enjoy Tropical Smoothie Cafe's limited-time Mediterranean Flatbreads and Live Better Smoothies, which feature spinach, kale, cucumber, kiwi and other nutritious fruits and vegetables.

"Our first experience at Tropical Smoothie Cafe was while we were traveling with our twin sons, who are national-level junior tennis players. They loved the food and smoothies. That played a major role in us ultimately choosing to open Tropical Smoothie Cafe," said Ming Yu, who left the engineering industry to open the fast casual cafe with his wife, Helen, an accountant.

"We always wanted to own our own business and Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a perfect fit with its high-quality, flavorful food and beverages that contribute toward a healthier way of life in the community where we live," added Helen Yu. "As one of the largest suburbs of Seattle, Bellevue is an ideal community for Tropical Smoothie Cafe. We're excited to introduce our restaurant to Bellevue and confident residents will love what we offer."
