Community

DYNE Hospitality Group believes in a family-first culture. We always stress the importance of helping each other in times of need, and to be mindful of each team members' unique life situations whenever we can. The purpose of the PYNEAPPLE Fund is to provide financial support to team members during times of special need, such as catastrophic illness, natural disasters or other types of emergencies.

The funds are to be used as a “helping hand” for basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care and emergency travel. The PYNEAPPLE Fund was initially funded by the two Co-Founders of DYNE Hospitality Group, Nick Crouch and Glen Johnson, and is continuously funded by the team members that make up DYNE.

Inspiring healthier lifestyles includes looking beyond ourselves. For years we have partnered with Camp Sunshine of Casco, Maine to support a destination that provides memorable experiences for children with life threatening diseases and their families. It's a much-needed respite in the face of difficult circumstances.  Together, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has donated more than $5 million to this worthwhile cause.

DYNE Hospitality Group’s Lubbock, Texas Tropical Smoothie Cafes are proud corporate partners/sponsor with Texas Tech University. This strategic partnership allows Tropical Smoothie Cafe to align themselves with a premier Division 1 University and be involved in marketing and promotional opportunities on campus and at Texas Tech Football and Baseball games.

DYNE Hospitality Group’s North Florida Tropical Smoothie Cafes are proud partners with the NFLs Jacksonville Jaguars. The partnership makes us the Official Smoothie of the Jacksonville Jaguars. It also aligns Tropical Smoothie Cafe with a premier professional organization in Jacksonville and allows us to collaborate on several different community support programs.
