Tropical Smoothie Cafe has announced the signing of a six-unit development agreement, which will expand the brand’s presence throughout Ohio. The first of the new Ohio cafes, which are owned by Kevin and Mike Couchman, is slated to open in Columbus in summer 2019.
Charles Watson, chief development officer and interim CEO of Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC said, “We’ve made a lot of headway in Ohio and continue to put our resources into expanding the Tropical Smoothie Cafe system throughout the state. We first met Kevin and Mike at a meet-and-greet event we recently hosted in Ohio, where we offered local entrepreneurs an opportunity to meet with our team and experience the brand firsthand. We got to spend quality time with the Couchmans and, after getting to know them, couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe brand. Their expertise and commitment to superior service will be a great asset as they expand the brand throughout Ohio.”
