North America’s largest frozen yogurt franchise also poised to open in three additional international markets
Menchie’s has become North America’s largest frozen yogurt franchise by offering our guests best-in-class frozen yogurt served in a warm, family-friendly atmosphere. We’ve dramatically expanded into new world markets, recently launching the first-ever Menchie’s in China. We are truly on an international roll, with openings slated in Singapore, Saudi Arabia and the Dominican Republic.
The opening of the first Menchie’s in China is cause for great celebration. It’s located in a bustling shopping area of Guangzhou, the city historically known as Canton, and we think it’s the perfect place for the world’s largest frozen yogurt franchise to begin spreading smiles! Our Chinese guests are treated to the same healthy, delicious flavors that Menchie’s is known for in our Private Label Collection, but we’ve added something special — country-specific flavors suited to the local palate.
And the best part — this is just the beginning of our growth in China. Our master franchisor for China is slated to open 180 Menchie’s locations over the next five years.
Why is Menchie’s taking hold across international borders? There are many reasons, but at the top of this list is our easy-to-learn business model. It’s simple and scalable — a proven system that creates loyal repeat customers and busy stores with high sales volumes. Our mission of spreading smiles and creating happy guests and franchisees is easily translatable into just about any language or culture.
“As we continue to expand internationally, we know opening a location in the rapidly developing Chinese market is an important step for our brand,” says Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie’s. “We look forward to globalizing the frozen yogurt industry with our unique concept and spreading smiles to our international fans.”
Menchie’s global expansion means something to the bottom line for all of our current and potential franchisees. It shows the strength of our brand. It’s a strong testimony that shows investors in China understand our unique value proposition as well as those in California, Guam or Japan.
Consider this statistic from the U.S. Department of Commerce: More than 75% of the expected growth in the world’s trade over the next two decades will come from emerging world markets. Menchie’s is on the front lines of those international opportunities, but don’t expect our growth to wane within the borders of the United States. We’ll keep spreading smiles at home, too!
