(Tampa Bay, Florida – June 8, 2017) – Tropical Smoothie Café, the leading fast casual café concept known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, is kicking off summer by celebrating National Flip Flop Day on Friday, June 16 at 16 locations across Tampa Bay.
National Flip Flop Day creates a mini vacation from everyday life by encouraging customers to kick back and wear flip flops while enjoying a freshly made smoothie. Customers wearing flip flops into Tropical Smoothie Café between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. will receive a free, limited edition Sunshine Smoothie in a 16-ounce, 20th anniversary souvenir cup. There are no strings — or in this case — shoe laces, attached.
Tropical Smoothie Café inspires healthier lifestyles by serving amazing smoothies and food with a bit of tropical fun. The limited edition Sunshine Smoothie captures the taste of summer with a vitamin C-packed combination of orange, banana, orange juice, pineapple and mango.
“Bringing the community of the Tampa Bay area together to celebrate summer and enjoy a brand new tropical smoothie is important to us,” said Mike Rotondo, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Café. “For the 11th year in a row, we look forward to serving over 500,000 guests who will visit one of our cafés and celebrate alongside us on National Flip Flop Day.”
The Tampa Bay community is encouraged to share their experience on social media and can use the social hashtag for National Flip Flop day, #TSCflipflop. For more information about Tropical Smoothie Café, including menu items and more, visit TropicalSmoothieCafe.com.
