Tropical Smoothie Cafe

Starting tomorrow, Bellevue will be home to the first Tropical Smoothie Cafe in the Seattle area. Small business owners Helen and Ming Yu are opening the franchise – part of a 415-location chain – in downtown Bellevue. The cafe will offer a variety of vegetable- and fruit-centric smoothies, plus salads, tacos, wraps, sandwiches, and flatbreads.

“Our first experience at Tropical Smoothie Cafe was while we were traveling with our twin sons, who are national-level junior tennis players. They loved the food and smoothies. That played a major role in us ultimately choosing to open Tropical Smoothie Cafe,” said Ming, who left the engineering industry to open the cafe.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe opens for business tomorrow at 8 a.m.
