Tropical Smoothie Cafe Offering Free Kids Combos

Tropical Smoothie Café is celebrating the introduction of its new Kids Combo Meals by offering kids 12 and younger a chance to enjoy the meals for free on Sundays for a limited time.

From August 30 to October 3, in all 280 Tropical Smoothie Cafés throughout the U.S., kids can receive the new Big Kahuna Combo free on Sundays when an accompanying adult purchases a Paradise Combo. The Big Kahuna Combo includes a food item, side, and 12-ounce Kid’s Smoothie. Kids also have the option of choosing the new Little Surfer Combo (food item, side, and 12-ounce soda) as their free meal.

The Kids Combo Meals are a part of the new menu at Tropical Smoothie Café, which debuted in August in all of the restaurants of the tropical-themed smoothie and sandwich restaurant chain.

“For the first time, we’re giving kids the option to choose a combo meal, just as their parents can,” says Jim Valentino, president and chief operating officer of the company. “By offering the opportunity to try one for free, we’re letting kids and their parents know that we offer all of our customers the delicious, quality meals they crave.”

In addition to giving kids a new meal option, Tropical Smoothie Café is offering the organizations that support school programs and other youth activities an opportunity to maximize their charitable efforts through the restaurant chain’s In-Store Fundraising Program.

“At Tropical Smoothie Café, we strive to contribute to a healthier way of life in the communities where we live,” Valentino says. “Our In-Store Fundraising Program gives back a portion of our sales during a specified time and date to a community organization, which allows it to better fund its activities and events.”

After arranging a time and date with the manager or owner of a Tropical Smoothie Café, the restaurant will display customized flyers advertising the fundraiser a week prior to the event. The restaurant also will provide organizations an electronic copy of the flyer to print and pass out.
