Jan. 22 DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Red Mango is thanking America with chocolate. The fastest-growing retailer of all-natural probiotic frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, will salute its 100th store with a nationwide celebration, introducing its decadent Dark Chocolate frozen yogurt and special pricing for the first 100 customers at all locations across the country on Saturday, Jan. 22.
The 100th Red Mango store, now open at 1009 E. Broadway, in Columbia, Missouri, set a new milestone for the company's rapid expansion and rising consumer demand for the healthy and delicious treats that Red Mango is serving up in record numbers.
"The public's devotion to Red Mango has been huge, championing the growth of our franchise across America and redefining the way people eat. We wanted to say thank you in the boldest, richest way," said Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer of Red Mango. "Our new lowfat, all-natural Dark Chocolate frozen yogurt is a tribute to the health, taste and style that has made our brand a national success."
On Saturday, the first 100 customers at every participating Red Mango location will receive special pricing and collectible gifts. Full-serve locations will offer collectible coupons for a small serving of Dark Chocolate frozen yogurt for just $1 and a free limited edition Mango-flavored Red Mango lip balm. Self-serve locations will give away the free lip balm and distribute collectible coupons good for any flavor of frozen yogurt with toppings for only $0.10 per ounce.
"It's a party for 10,000 customers with one of the most decadent additions to our menu, and we're ready to have some fun," Kim said.
Red Mango's Dark Chocolate frozen yogurt is made with Ghirardelli premium dark chocolate and Red Mango's all-natural nonfat yogurt. The rich and creamy sensation also offers antioxidants naturally found in chocolate, and features patented probiotics like Ganeden BC30™ that help promote a healthy immune and digestive system.
"Like all of our other frozen yogurt and smoothies, our newest Dark Chocolate yogurt creation offers an indulgent and craveable treat that people can enjoy in an all-natural, healthy and guilt-free way," Kim shared. "Our 100th store in Columbia makes us proud to meet people's desires and we look forward to adding 100 more stores this year."
Red Mango, the fastest growing retailer of all-natural nonfat frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, opened its first U.S. store in July 2007 in Los Angeles, and has since celebrated more than 100 store openings in 25 states. Red Mango received the prestigious Nation's Restaurant News' 2009 "Hot Concepts!" award and the industry-recognized SupplySide's 2010 "Scientific Excellence Award", and has been named the best frozen yogurt in Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, Chicago, Utah and New York by highly-regarded independent publications. Headquartered in Dallas, Red Mango serves uniquely delicious frozen yogurt that is all-natural, nonfat and lowfat, gluten-free and packed with beneficial live and active probiotic cultures like Ganeden BC30™ (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), which helps support a healthy immune and digestive system when consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Red Mango was the first frozen yogurt retailer to become certified by the National Yogurt Association's Live and Active Culture Seal for meeting the required criteria for healthy frozen yogurt. Red Mango recently expanded its menu to include satisfying meal options, such as its all-natural made-to-order fruit parfaits and fresh fruit smoothies, and also introduced the world's first all-natural probiotic iced teas that are made with whole tea leaves and hand-shaken to order.
