“Today’s coolest culinary phenomenon”
Frozen yogurt has been a culinary phenomenon which, over the past few years, has rapidly expanded from Asia to America and then to Europe through the Middle East finally arriving in the UK. It’s cool, trendy and healthy appeal makes it the perfect addition for all food service operators
The frozen yogurt culture is the new “cool food”. Its name recalls a healthy lifestyle and a light and modern diet, which continues to attract large numbers of consumers of all ages. A transversal phenomenon which attracts new customers, convincing the sceptical at the very first taste.
The key considerations for a new Frozen Yogurt operator include: being cool, distinguish yourself from others, underline your own identity, accurately select your target market, and be sure to have variable product lines that can be adapted to different consumers – breakfast, snacks, lunch, desserts, sports meetings and dinners.
Daniel Kim, Chief Executive of Red Mango was quoted: “Nowadays, customers aren’t just coming in for the frozen yogurt, but also for the “chill” store settings. Moving away from the outdated ice-cream parlour environment, modern froyo stores include high-end furniture, Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and live musical performances. “We’re trying to create the coffeehouse environment,” says chief executive of Red Mango, Daniel Kim. “We’re creating an ambiance, a point of relaxation, a meeting place.” In addition, this trendy setting is a hot spot for not only teenagers and college students, but also business professionals who desire a more casual atmosphere to chat with their clients. Best of all, with this refreshed decor, store owners can bump up their prices to $5 for a large serving of frozen yogurt or even $7 with additional toppings without taking a hit on their rate of customer return.”
