"I was immediately blown away by the Menchie's concept when I was first introduced to the brand," said franchisee Greg Johansen. "Menchie's main focus is serving smiles which really aligned with my core values and the values I would like to bring to the community of Altoona. We anticipate a great reaction from fans."

The new self-serve store offers an unparalleled experience that is welcoming, fun and interactive, with arts and crafts for kids, enjoyable music and indoor/outdoor seating areas where friends and family gather.
