"My sister and partner, Soheela Malik, and I felt the Menchie's brand really matched our own personal values of focusing on the community and family," said franchisee, Mike Malik. "The company is very active in giving back by forging partnerships with local schools and charities and we look forward to sharing the Menchie's experience with the residents of Downers Grove."

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.

Menchie's ensures that only the highest quality milk and flavors are used to make its frozen yogurt.
