Tropical Smoothie Cafe to add Downtown Boise store

Tropical Smoothie Cafe plans its second Boise outlet - with the addition near the Grove Plaza in Boise.

The new eatery is slotted next to Gyro Shack in the Clearwater Building on Main St.  The franchised restaurant started in the 1990s in Florida, and serves wraps, sandwiches , salads , and smoothies. It will compete with the newly-opened Fresh Health Cafe on Broad St. and nearby Jamba Juice in menu overlap.

Fresh Smoothie opened its first Boise outlet in a former Moxie Java location on Overland earlier this year.
