Tropical Smoothie Café, a leading national fast-casual concept known for its better-for-you-smoothies and food with a tropical twist, recently announced its One Million Smoothie Giveaway for guests nationwide.
Following the donation of over 180,000 smoothies in April to frontline heroes in the COVID-19 pandemic, Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s new goal is to spread more happiness by giving away one million free smoothies to guests across the country.
“We were humbled by the incredible response to the 180,000 smoothies our franchisees donated to frontline heroes nationwide,” says Charles Watson, chief executive officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC. “The smiles we saw and stories we heard inspired us to think bigger and explore how we could do even more to support the communities we serve. Our guests have always told us our smoothies provide a refreshing, momentary escape and we figured everyone could use a little escape right now. So, we decided to extend our smoothie giveaway to everyone in America by offering 1,000,000 free smoothies.”
In support of National Nurses Appreciation Month in May, Tropical Smoothie Cafe also pledged to donate $100,000 to the American Nurses Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund upon reaching its goal of giving away 1,000,000 smoothies.
“The support Tropical Smoothie Cafe already gave to nurses and other healthcare professionals is tremendous. We appreciate them doing even more by giving away 1 million smoothies and making a generous donation to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses,” says Kate Judge, executive director, American Nurses Foundation. “Their donation will help the Foundation support critical areas where frontline nurses need immediate and ongoing support like mental wellness, direct financial assistance and national advocacy.”
