Tropical Smoothie Cafe, one of the fastest growing franchise concepts in the country, announced Thursday it is working with ApplePie Capital to offer new and existing franchisees access to up to $20 million in debt capital to drive continued expansion across the U.S.
"Tropical Smoothie Cafe is committed to helping our franchisees grow and prosper, and we are excited to launch this program with ApplePie. They are franchising professionals who understand the needs of our franchisees to help foster their growth,” says Charles Watson, chief development officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
“ApplePie recognizes our business model and has developed a dedicated lending program to address the financial needs of our franchisees, whether they are looking to open new locations, acquire capital for acquisitions or remodels, or looking for assistance with refinancing. Their decision to allocate $20 million to Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchisees will help us achieve our accelerating expansion efforts in key target markets across the U.S. and reach our goal of 1,000 locations by 2020.”
"ApplePie Capital is thrilled to partner with Tropical Smoothie Cafe to support the growth of the brand more quickly and efficiently," says Denise Thomas, CEO and co-founder of ApplePie.
"ApplePie offers financing options that address the full spectrum of franchisee needs, and our proprietary growth products are specifically designed for franchisees with stellar franchise brands like Tropical Smoothie Cafe. The options we provide often do not require personal collateral, and we have introduced lower pricing to help accelerate their aggressive multi-unit growth plans."
