Shao Liu, of Silver Spring, Md., has signed a franchise agreement to open a location in the Montgomery County area.
"I'm very excited to introduce Red Mango to Montgomery County," said Liu. "It's the perfect nutritious treat for our health conscious community."
Red Mango offers 30 flavors of all-natural, nonfat frozen yogurt, including the company's core flavors – Original, Pomegranate by POM Wonderful®, Madagascar Vanilla and the seasonal flavor Pumpkin Spice – all at around 100 calories per serving, as well as 20 varieties of fresh fruit smoothies, made-to-order fruit parfaits and all-natural probiotic iced teas.

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 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, gluten-free and packed with beneficial live and active probiotic cultures like Ganeden BC30™ (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), which help support a healthy immune and digestive system when consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Red Mango's frozen yogurt 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 also introduced the world's first all-natural probiotic iced teas that are made with whole tea leaves and hand-shaken to order, and recently expanded its menu to include satisfying lunchtime meal options like our all-natural made-to-order fruit parfaits and fresh fruit smoothies.
