Toya Evans, owner of the Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise, which recently opened its third location in Bowie, Maryland, said: „Although our opening was postponed due to COVID-19, our first day was incredibly strong, with incredible sales. We really believe that it would not have been possible to navigate through this period without the support and advice we received from the company team, especially if we had to change our training, marketing and social media because of the changes in our grand opening plan. Evans continues: „We love Tropical Smoothie Cafe for its incredible support system and network of franchise owners, as well as our customers and the best products we can serve in coffee shops.
