Tropical Smoothie opening in River Market 

Tropical Smoothie is opening a franchise in the River Market's Ottenheimer Hall, hopefully by the end of April, area developer for Arkansas and Oklahoma Chris Kramolis said. Brad Newcomb and Josh Inmon are the franchisees who'll run the space. The Tropical Smoothie staples will be offered, but it'll be more of an express menu, Kramolis said. The space, located in the southwest corner next to soon-to-open Shugg's BBQ, also offers a window for customers who want to order from the street.

Kramolis said the initial plan is for the outlet to be open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. He added that he expects to do a lot of catering in the downtown area out of the River Market.
