Tropik Sun® has retained primary presence in the retail shopping market as a main staple for refreshments and everyone's favorite munchies.
Tropik Sun Fruit & Nut® has grown into a nationally-recognized franchise system operating in more than 30 states. Diversifoods continues to add new Tropik Sun® stores to the franchise system with an aggressive growth focus throughout the United States. Our current franchisees renew their franchises and continue to operate successfully in markets with strong customer bases.
Over the long term, the candy and food industry has survived the peaks and valleys of every economic cycle. The advantage of the Tropik Sun® system over many other franchises is its product diversity and simplicity of operation. Unlike other retail concepts which are limited, the key to the historic success of Tropik Sun® is its ability to be flexible ... to remain popular regardless of changing tastes.
Tropik Sun® began in the summer of 1980 in downtown Chicago with a basic offering of 20 varieties of nuts, 16 types of dried fruits, a dozen trail mixes, carob and yogurt-covered nuts and fruits. Today Tropik Sun® has evolved to include a diversified and wide variety of "fun-munchies", gift items and thirst-quenching refreshments.
Tropik Sun® will likely be known as the greatest "fun-munchie" store in the history of shopping malls!
Tropik Sun® is proud to serve quality products that reflect the popular tastes of our ageless customers.
