Already sprouting up across the U.S. and beyond, franchisees keep stepping into the Forever Yogurt concept, a four year running brand that’s quick to become a huge player in the frozen yogurt franchise scene. The flexible management concept for franchise partners and the customizable urban design of each location, which is adapted to best fit the local vibe, make the brand a stand-out start-up.
Operators interested in semi-absentee operation and low employee requirements find the self-service concept, not to mention the winning product with so many options (over 40 toppings) to please all kinds of tastes, a great way to step into their first franchise experience.
In Baltimore, Maryland, franchise operator Mit Patel manages his location with plans to make waves this spring and summer season after its initial opening occurred last year in March.
Three points from his experience as a first-time franchisee:
-With no prior experience in franchising, his step into the Forever Yogurt franchise system was initially prompted by the company culture, which remains focused on creating even more brand exposure and recognition nationwide and worldwide with a vibrant presence
- Reaching and relating to customers even in a changing marketplace was important to him, and Forever Yogurt’s philosophy and system made it clear that both aims would be achievable
- He spent lots of time speaking with frozen yogurt franchise owners and customers as part of his research process, asking questions, finding out why the brand was working and what loyal patrons appreciated
Forever Yogurt also offers off-site catering opportunities to franchisees, a way to diversify services and support customers right where they need it. Coined the foreverKiosk, this portable and self-serve booth allows customers to enjoy numerous flavors and toppings of their choosing at all kinds of events, from weddings to conventions to parties.
Additionally, Forever Yogurt offers innovative crowd franchising, a collective way to get the brand into a city near you. Crowd funded development plans for new locations have reached Chicago, Boston, and New York and community members continue to gradually acquire financial stakes in their development.
International locations continue to pop up, with shops opening in Panama soon, two currently up and running in China, and locations throughout the U.S. with a huge presence continually growing in the Midwest with roots in Chicago.
