FROOTS, a rapidly growing quick service food and smoothies franchise, announces the opening of its newest restaurant in Las Vegas. The owners of the new restaurant are husband and wife team John and Kathy Tan. FROOTS was created in 2001 by David Lopez and has been franchising since 2004. Lopez discovered the popularity of fresh fruit smoothies while in college and turned his part-time job into a full-time passion. Besides smoothies, FROOTS offers diners a number of healthy food and beverage choices, making it a popular choice for families.
When the Tans were looking for a business to buy and run together, they were more than a little influenced by children, Austine, 14 and Jack, age 2 ½. “We wanted to find a business that would compliment the community,” said Kathy, “and also be a place that would be good for families. FROOTS just fit both of these categories perfectly.”
The Grand Opening of the Tan’s FROOTS restaurant was held on Saturday, May 2, 2009. A formal ribbon cutting ceremony took place during the event and Councilman Wolfson of the 2nd ward was present to do the ribbon cutting honors.
