A national chain with multiple locations in North Carolina is opening up shop at a storefront on South Horner Boulevard, according to a permit issued by the Sanford/Lee County Inspections Division.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe is set to occupy 3092 S. Horner Blvd. between the Sarkus Express restaurant and the AT&T store near Buffalo Wild Wings. Work was under way at the property as of Wednesday afternoon.
Despite smoothies’ prominence in the company’s name, the menu also shows a good amount of fast food style dishes, including wraps, quesadillas, bowls, sandwiches, and even breakfast items.
The company’s website shows several locations in North Carolina, and includes the Sanford location (as well as one just down N.C. 87 in Cameron) as “coming soon.“
