Tropical Smoothie Cafe, a fast-casual cafe, is a fast-growing chain that has plans to open in the Saline area.

The drive-through restaurant will open at 6983 E. Michigan Ave., in Pittsfield Township, just east of Moon Road, in the former Bank of America location.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe serves wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and smoothies.

Blueprints posted on Loopnet show plans for a 35-seat restaurant. The owner of the property is Saline Development Group, LLC, represented by Paul Valentino. The firm is looking for a second tenant to lease 2,500 square feet of space in the former bank - marketing as good space for an office or medical facility.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe opened 110 locations in 2018 and hopes for 130 new locations this year. It expects to open its 750th location this year, according to Chain Store Age.
