Not only is Menchie’s a good franchise to buy, it’s also a franchise that does good in the community
When you’re looking for the right franchise opportunity for yourself and your family, you have to consider more than just solid financials and brand stability. Ultimately you want a good culture fit, because that’s where you’re going to be spending the majority of your time and passion. It may be that what you’re looking for is a franchise company with a conscience. If so, we’d like to tell you a little more about Menchie’s.
In 2016, we launched Smile It Forward Month to commemorate World Smile Day. We passed out over a thousand Smile It Forward cards in locations throughout October, with the idea that the card-bearer would be prompted to do something nice for someone else and then pass along the card, hoping the next card-holder would do the same, and so on. By the end of the promotion, which used the hashtag #spreadingsmiles on social media, we hoped our guests would inspire hundreds of thousands of random acts of kindness.
Of course, along the way there were discounts on froyo treats and a contest for a year’s worth of free Menchie’s treats, because we love to reward our guests as much as we love giving back to our communities, both the ones we’re located in and the larger one we all occupy nationwide.
That’s why we dedicate resources and volunteer time every year to a worthy nonprofit organization, like 2016’s fundraising effort that generated over $152,000 for the American Heart Association.
Company culture focused on the community
We’ve always felt it was important to give something back. And we’re always seeking franchise candidates who feel the same way. The ideal Menchie’s owner is someone who is passionate about the community where they live and work, someone who wants to participate in local causes, schools and youth sports teams.
The Menchie’s brand was inspired by our desire to create a place that was community-focused and made others happy. Menchie’s is a fun, smiley environment where anyone can enjoy our line of Private Label Collection yogurt, sourced from a family-owned California dairy farm where the cows are never treated with artificial growth hormones.
We have over 100 rotating flavors in flavors like Rich ‘n’ Smooth Cookie Butter, Double Espresso Tiramisu and Crisp Irish Mint. Our frozen desserts come in nonfat, lowfat, regular, tart, sorbet, no sugar added, low carb and low carb/no sugar added. Guests can personalize their mix with over 70 toppings such as fresh fruit, warm sauces and candies like chocolate-covered pretzel balls and mochi.
Every mix is as unique as each guest makes it, and each Menchie’s is as involved in its community as our franchisees want. We like to think that part of the Menchie’s franchise cost is being committed to whatever communities you operate in, which allows our franchise partners to get involved in as many organizations, causes and events as they wish. The more Menchie’s is part of the community, the more the community embraces its Menchie’s.
