US-based fast casual franchise concept Tropical Smoothie Café is planning to expand its presence with new development plans in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The company is currently looking for qualified entrepreneurs as franchisees to open the new restaurants.
Tropical Smoothie Café CEO Charles Watson is conducting informative event at its franchised location in Dallas-Fort Worth on 16 April to select new franchisees.
The event will invite interested entrepreneurs and offer information about franchising opportunities with the company.
Tropical Smoothie’s franchisees currently operate approximately 50 locations across Texas, including 11 cafes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
It is also planning to open three more locations in the region before the end of this year.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe CEO Charles Watson said: “In the past year alone, our aggressive expansion throughout Texas has proven to be a success, most notably with the celebration of our 700th cafe opening, located right here in Hurst.
“There are many opportunities for local entrepreneurs to build on the existing momentum in the local Dallas-Fort Worth market, and we’re looking forward to meeting with them in-person to talk about the tools and resources Tropical Smoothie Cafe is able to offer our franchisees that position them for success.”
Tropical Smoothie is planning to open new locations in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio through franchising.
Last year, the company has opened 110 cafes, as well as signed 191 franchise agreements. It currently operates more than 730 locations across the US.
