Small Business Growth Fund Success Story

Tropical Smoothie Cafe

Healthy Living Ventures dba Tropical Smoothie Café is a national franchise with over 20 years of experience and an expanding number of outlets nationwide (over 500) with a mission to inspire a healthier lifestyle by serving amazing food and smoothies with a bit of tropical fun. The franchise will be expanding into Prince George’s County with a location at the new Bowie Marketplace.

FSC First restructured the financing and brought in resource partners in order to accommodate the client’s acquisition and start-up needs through innovative and creative financing using funds from three programs FSC First manages – the City of Bowie Revolving Loan Fund, MD DHCD Microenterprise Loan Fund, and Economic Development Corporation Revolving Loan Fund. The aggregate amount of $165,000 fulfilled the funding needs that will allow the client to receive a prominent location in the new Bowie Marketplace.
