A Saginaw couple who opened their first Tropical Smoothie Cafe near Michigan State University's campus six years ago will open what they hope is the first of three new cafe locations in the Lansing area in June.

Ruth and Dave Buko said the new cafe will occupy 1,600 square feet of space in a new building being constructed in the 4400 block of West Saginaw Highway in Delta Township.

According to the Lansing State Journal, the site was previously home to Jackie's Diner, which closed in late 2016.  That building was demolished late last year.

The 40 plus seat cafe, with a drive-thru window, will offer made to order fruit and vegetable smoothies, wraps and flatbread sandwiches and salads, as well as a breakfast menu.

The couple already owns three Tropical Smoothie Cafes, including two in East Lansing, along with one in their hometown of Saginaw.  The new Delta Township location is the first of three they can plan to open in the area over the next few years.
