Cafe to Offer Quick, Convenient and Better-For-You Smoothies and Food for Travelers in New T-North Concourse

March 20, 2024 // // ATLANTA - Atlanta-based Tropical Smoothie Cafe announced its newest franchised location opened at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) on Tuesday, March 19. The restaurant is located in the T Concourse and is one of several new fast-casual dining destinations opening as part of the T-North Concourse expansion. This is the first Tropical Smoothie Cafe location at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The new Tropical Smoothie Cafe location will offer Atlanta travelers quick, convenient and better-for-you smoothies, bowls, wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and quesadillas. Smoothies are made-to-order for each guest, and Tropical Smoothie Cafe offers a variety of menu options perfect for travelers at any time of day, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between.

The cafe is designed to create an interactive experience for guests, centered around curved eating counters that wrap around an open kitchen. The location’s layout prioritizes efficiency with a central order and point-of-service location with various grab-n-go and made-to-order options.

The Atlanta airport cafe will be the second Tropical Smoothie Cafe airport location nationally following an opening at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City in March 2022. Both locations are operated by Paradies Lagardère, a prominent North American travel retailer and restaurateur known for its extensive presence in airport concessions.

“As an Atlanta-based company, we are honored to open in our home-city’s airport and to offer travelers a food and smoothie option on-the-go,” said Charles Watson, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Café, LLC. “More than 100 million travelers pass through Hartsfield-Jackson each year, offering us the opportunity to serve guests from around the world and to build greater brand awareness for Tropical Smoothie Cafe. We look forward to working with Paradies Lagardère to deliver a premier airport dining experience to travelers in Atlanta and in future locations.”

“I'm thrilled to announce the opening of Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Concourse T,” said Gregg Paradies, President and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “Paradies Lagardère is proud to work with this outstanding Atlanta-based brand and is excited to provide guests a healthy, wholesome offering while they are traveling.”
