Nick and Chandni Patel have proudly opened their second area franchise location for Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Overland Park, Kansas.
The couple opened the new store last weekend at 7592 W. 119th St. in the Rosana Square Shopping Center. Their first location of Tropical Smoothie opened at 15933 Antioch Road in Overland Park in May 2018.
The newest location features the brand's tropical island-inspired theme and is 2,500 square feet – almost 1,000 square feet larger than the first location. The couple, who lives in Overland Park, is excited to bring the flavor of the tropics to their friends and neighbors.
“Our brand motto of ‘Eat better. Feel better’ goes beyond a visit to the café – it’s about making the lives of our entire community better one step at a time,” says Nick. “Being part of the Overland Park community, we have and will put all our energy into making our new Tropical Smoothie Cafe a healthier lifestyle choice.”
There are seven Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations open throughout the Kansas City area. Other franchisees operate locations in Lenexa, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Lee’s Summit and Olathe.
The Atlanta-based chain offers better-for-you smoothies, wraps, sandwiches and flatbreads and has grown to more than 650 locations nationwide. Tropical Smoothie Cafe has also been recognized within the industry as one of the fastest growing franchises in the country.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe offers a variety of smoothies with flavors leaning toward berries and tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. Paradise Point, for instance, features strawberries, banana and pineapple, and the Mango Magic has mango, pineapple and non-fat yogurt. The Bahama Mama mixes it up with strawberries, pineapple, white chocolate and coconut.
