Summertime is the best time to talk about frozen desserts. Whether it’s frozen yogurt, soft serve ice cream, or good old-fashioned popsicles, when it’s hot outside, consumers crave frozen treats.
The question is this; will they visit a frozen yogurt franchise shop and pony up $3 or more when the mood strikes?
Or, are frozen yogurt franchises cold?
It sure doesn’t seem like frozen yogurt franchises are losing their luster. Carol Cohen, a fellow Clevelander and a cool friend, tipped me off to the newest frozen yogurt franchise to hit our area, a couple of weeks ago.
It seems that a local shopping center developer (Bob Stark) has purchased the rights to open 30 Menchies frozen yogurt franchises in Northeast Ohio. They’re a chain out of Encino, California.
Menchies franchises are by no means alone in their quest for world frozen yogurt domination. My area has several more entries to the market arriving any day. Look
