The University of Cincinnati celebrates this week's Bearcat Friday winner.

The University of Cincinnati Athletic Department developed a way for businesses and campus offices around the country to join in on the fun and show their pride for the University. Bearcat Fridays are scheduled to run throughout the year.

This week's BEARCAT FRIDAY WINNER IS TROPICAL SMOOTHIE CAFÉ in West Chester, Ohio! The BEARCAT mascot will visit Tropical Smoothie Cafe tomorrow to deliver UC items to employees wearing red and black.

"We are very excited to be selected as the winner for Bearcat Friday at Tropical Smoothie Café - West Chester. Being a Bearcat and former member of an athletic team as well as several employees attending UC, the mix of UC Spirit and our tasty, healthy menu options is a winning combination! Stop in Friday around 3pm at our Voice of America location to enjoy any of our delicious low-fat Real Fruit Smoothies for only $1.99 and meet the UC Bearcat," said owner Jeff Glassmeyer. "Enjoy one of our delicious wraps, sandwiches, or flatbreads and watch as our Smoothie Man takes on the Bearcat in a friendly arm wrestle. Celebrate our local community and enjoy a delicious, real fruit smoothie - a great way to live better, eat better, and feel better!"

Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise was opened in West Chester in 2007 to bring a healthy alternative to fast food. They offer a full menu of Real Fruit Smoothies along with Wraps and Sandwiches made with Dietz and Watson meats.
