Fastest-Growing Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt Chain Signs Deal to Open Five
Additional Stores in Toronto
TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - Menchie's, the fastest-growing self-serve
frozen yogurt chain, today announced that it has signed an area
development agreement to open additional Menchie's franchises in the
Toronto area. The deal was entered into between Yogurtworld Franchising
Corp., the master franchisor of Menchie's in Canada, and SJL Yogurt
Inc., a Toronto based company.
The expansion of the Menchie's brand in Canada continues with the
signing of this five store development agreement in Toronto. "The first
two stores in the greater Toronto area were met with such extraordinary
crowds of customers that we immediately knew that our concept was well
received in Canada. These five stores will be in addition to the two
that are already open in the GTA," stated Michael Shneer, president of
Yogurtworld Franchising Corp.
Sam Lipson, partner in SJL Yogurt Inc. added, "We've been a customer of
Menchie's since they first opened. We would go there five times per
week and every time we went in, the store was packed with happy
customers. We loved it so much and saw how popular it was, that we
decided that we wanted to get into this exciting and rewarding
business." Lipson's partner, Jo Levitan added, "I can't wait to bring
the delicious fun of Menchie's to new awaiting communities."
Menchie's customers help themselves to an unlimited mix of yogurt and
toppings at a unique self-serve station with more than 100 rotating
yogurt flavours from cake batter and green apple tart to peanut butter,
chocolate, and vanilla, and more than 70 rotating toppings including
fresh fruits, granolas, nuts, an assortment of candies and hot fudges.
Menchie's uses the highest quality frozen yogurt at all of its
locations globally, made exclusively through its own label.
Furthermore, Menchie's frozen yogurt contains live and active cultures
and has received the Live and Active Culture (LAC) seal indicating its
endorsement by the National Yogurt Association in the United States.

experience, enjoyable music, and relaxing indoor and outdoor seating
areas where family and friends gather. Menchie's franchisees are
