It doesn’t matter if lunch is served in the conference room or at your desk—Tropical Smoothie Cafe catering always brings a taste of the tropics to the office. In fact, it all began on the famously white sandy beaches of Destin, Florida, back in 1993. There, founders and original owners Eric and Delora Jenrich and David Walker started to blend fruit and vegetables to create unique and refreshing smoothies. Customers have been lining up for their extraordinary creations ever since.

After the first franchised store opened a few years later, the trio added a range of wholesome sandwiches, wraps, and sandwiches to complement the smoothies. Today Tropical Smoothie Cafe operates more than 600 locations nationwide, and, according to Restaurant Business, it’s constantly growing. But every store still remains true to those beachy origins with fresh food that complements a vibrant, fun, and healthy lifestyle.

What to Eat:

Tropical Smoothie Cafe catering is one of the absolute best options if you’re looking for veggie-centric choices that will still please a crowd of carnivores. Get an unexpected injection of vitamins at your next breakfast meeting with a selection of assorted smoothies. The Island Green, filled with five full servings of luscious fruits and vegetables such as kale, pineapple, and banana, is their top-selling smoothie. You’ll never notice the yogurt is nonfat in the creamy Mango Magic with pineapple or in the tart Kiwi Quencher with strawberries.

But Tropical Smoothie Cafe isn’t just about the drinks. For a quick and easy office lunch, the wrap and sandwich tray can feed an unlimited number of people and comes with your choice of healthy wraps and sandwiches made with top quality meats and cheeses, fresh produce, and savory sauces. One favorite, the crave-worthy Baja chicken wrap, comes bursting with plump black beans and rice, smashed avocado, pickled red onion, cheddar cheese, and roasted tomato salsa. Then there’s the SuperGreen Caesar wrap, a textural wonder full of smoky grilled chicken, crisp greens, Parmesan cheese, and flavorful Caesar dressing.

That wrap is also available in salad form as one of Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s beloved group spreads that serve eight to ten, or try the Thai chicken salad with crunchy wontons, sesame seeds, carrots, and a lush peanut dressing. Sweet and savory come together in the Chicken Apple Spinach Salad with bacon, carrots, a smoked cheese blend, and honey Dijon dressing. A group salad can stand on its own as an entree with the addition of a round of smoothies, or cut the headcount in half and serve one as a side dish with some wraps.

The folks at Tropical Smoothie Cafe catering also understand that everyone deserves a treat after eating their vegetables. The assorted cookie tray always comes stacked with gooey chocolate chip cookies and spicy snickerdoodles.

Other Tips for Ordering:

Tropical Smoothie Cafe catering gets raves for its on-time delivery, so you’ll never worry about the food showing up late for your event. Plus, all the necessary utensils, plates, and napkins are provided. The food always arrives smartly packaged and labeled, so there won’t be any surprises when you bite into one of those tasty wraps.

Although Tropical Smoothie Cafe catering is famous for the delicious grilled chicken found in much of its menu items, the chain can easily accommodate non-meat eaters, too. When ordering a wrap and sandwich tray, just note the number of vegetarians in the group and the staff will substitute their “beyond meat” chicken-free chicken strips for the meat.
