Tropical Smoothie Cafe

Owner: Kaleb Warnock

“I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Art and the SBDC…thank you.”

Kaleb Warnock’s law enforcement career required a strong physical regimen to combat on-duty injury, health and stress issues. A healthy lifestyle and diet were priorities on and off the job. He and his wife Patricia craved a delicious smoothie after a hard workout. Their appetite for healthy food lead Kaleb on a quest to provide healthier options to the El Paso community.  Kaleb opened 

the first Tropical Smoothie Cafe in 2016 has not stopped. SBDC Business Advisor Art Anchondo assisted Kaleb with the essential steps needed in establishing and financing a business in El Paso. Since 2016, Kaleb has opened 6 more Tropical Smoothie Cafes and a Marcos Pizza franchise. Tropical Smoothie Cafe in El Paso has become the leading franchise in Texas.
