July 13, 2022 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Tropical Smoothie Cafe continued its growth in the second quarter of 2022. From the opening of its 1,100th location to launching a new mobile app and refreshed loyalty program, the fast-causal concept is touting impressive advancements in Q2.
Celebrating milestone mid-year numbers, Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise agreements in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Salt Lake City.
"It is exciting to see the milestones we've achieved already in the first half of 2022," said Cheryl Fletcher, Chief Development Officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC.
Among the brand's most recent signed agreements is a 15-unit franchise agreement in Utah with Jacob Webb and April Miller.
"These 15 locations will fill a major need in the Northern Utah market," said Webb. "Since the Greater Salt Lake City community is no stranger to the brand, we look forward to making Tropical Smoothie Cafe a household name in Weber and Davis Counties. We have many years of ownership experience, and our knowledge of the restaurant industry and passion for getting involved in our community led us to conclude that aligning with Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a natural fit.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe continued its digital strategy focused on leveraging various activations that reward the brand's most in-the-know, loyal guests through promotions and offers on the mobile app.
The new Tropic Rewards™ loyalty program launched in June, and includes an updated point system that makes redeeming points easier and faster. Members now earn 10 points for every $1 they spend through the app, online or in-cafe, and can redeem their points on their favorite items. They are also the first to know about new promotions and limited-time menu items and will receive special rewards for birthdays and referring friends.
