Ex FOCUS Brands exec to open 6 Tropical Smoothie Cafe units

Aug. 8, 2017

Tropical Smoothie Café will open in Snellville on Aug. 19 under the leadership of the former president of FOCUS Brands International, Michael Shattuck, according to a press release.

"I am a strong proponent of the franchise business model and believe in the power of a group of driven individuals focused on the development of a brand," Shattuck said in the release. "Tropical Smoothie has a great product, strong positioning and a value system I believe in."

Shattuck plans to open another five locations in Gwinnett County, and hopes to benefit two local organizations (Youth Subsidized Work Experience Program and Briggs & Associates) which help people find jobs, according to the release.

"I view this as an opportunity to give back by sharing what I've learned through the decades with a whole new generation of people working in food service," he said.
