Reader Scuttlebutt on Former Frozen Yogurt Space in Union Station

Dear PoPville,

Some potential news about the former fro-yo place in the upstairs of Union Station by the Pret (which was speculated to become a Burger King Express). I saw some workers working on the space yesterday, and I asked them what was going to go there. They said that it would be a “Tropicana,” and that it would be temporary. This is a bit confusing to me— does this mean it will be a juice stand? (Are there freestanding Tropicana dispensaries?) Also, there are now a bunch of Tropicana ads in the Union Station Metro, so maybe the old fro-yo spot will just be ad space until something new comes in. Just thought I’d pass this news on!

    Tropicana is typically distributed by train (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juice_Train) so I could imagine a pop-up that explains the history and sells its products would be a good fit at Union Station!

    With that said, maybe it’s just a place named Tropicana. Or the workers are confused (remember when the folks working on the Z-Burger in CH were adamant it was going to be named Zebra Girl?)

  • Houston

    Tropicana currently has a giant ad takeover of 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. I suspect this temporary space is related to a similar campaign for Union Station.

    Maybe it’s going to be a small, local version of the Tropicana Casino.

    • Club Tropicana – drinks are free. Fun and sunshine – there’s enough for everyone

  • Tropicana Eatery possibly? the Caribean restaurant
