A local couple is starting a local Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise, with four planned Idaho stores.
The first store will open in June at 8925 W. Overland Road in Boise. It will serve wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and salads as well as smoothies.
For the next three locations, the franchisees are “currently scouting sites in Eagle, Nampa, Caldwell, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Coeur d’Alene and Spokane,” a news release said.
Georgia-based Tropical Smoothie Cafe plans to open 100 restaurants nationwide this year, after selling more than 450 franchises in the past three years.
The local franchisees, Kory and Michelle Pukash, own businesses including BloodyFine Foods, which sells Bloody Mary mix, and the IT staffing business KMP Companies LLC.
