April 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – Chicago resident Sweety Patel is about to treat customers to a whole new Red Mango experience.
After visiting almost every frozen yogurt site in Chicago, Patel was sold on Red Mango as the best. That’s when she decided to invest in a franchise. But Patel will be serving a lot more than the award-winning frozen yogurt at her location. She will also enter the growing $5 billion juicing industry at the same time, as she opens one of the first Red Mango Yogurt Café and Juice Bar locations in Chicago.
Patel’s location will open in Summer 2014 at Millennium Station 151 E. Randolph Street below the famous Millennium Park. The Red Mango Yogurt Café and Juice bars will be located inside of Millennium Station connected to the Prudential building, Smurfit-stone building, Harris Theater and to Chicago Pedway System. Customers can also enter from of Michigan Avenue & Randolph Street entrance. The expanded concept, which Red Mango is rolling out nationwide, will serve fresh cold-squeezed juices and healthy cafe meals under 500 calories in addition to the frozen yogurt, fresh smoothies, and parfaits that have made Red Mango famous.
"I am very excited to bring this new Red Mango Yogurt Café and Juice Bar to the people of Chicago," said Patel. "Red Mango has a great business concept and a wide range of new menu options including salads, flatbreads and wraps that will fit into the lifestyle of a lot of residents and visitors in the city."
With a career background in business management and a passion for nutrition, Patel is eager to bring this expanded concept that emphasizes healthful eating to the Windy City.
Red Mango, one of the fastest-growing retailers of all-natural nonfat and low fat frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, opened its first U.S. store in July 2007, and has since celebrated more than 280 store openings across the U.S., Mexico, El Salvador and Uruguay.
