May 12, 2014 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – As an owner of several convenience stores and gas stations, Kamleshkumar Patel knows a lot about being his own boss and running a successful business. Now Patel is about to embark on a fresh business adventure and treat customers to a whole new Red Mango experience.
After a lot of research into the frozen yogurt and smoothie industry, Patel decided that Red Mango Yogurt Café had the best products for customers to enjoy while walking around the mall or taking a break from shopping. But Patel will be serving a lot more than the award-winning frozen yogurt at his location. He will also enter the growing $5 billion juicing industry at the same time, as he opens one of the first Red Mango Yogurt Café & Juice Bar locations in Syracuse, N.Y.
Patel's location will open in Summer of 2014 at 306 Hiawatha Boulevard West inside the Destiny USA shopping center on the second level. 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 excited to bring the healthiest products on the market to the customers who visit Destiny USA. Red Mango is more than just a yogurt franchise, but a place where people have healthy eating option like fresh cold-squeezed juices, delicious smoothies, and nutritious café wraps and salads," said Patel. "Red Mango Yogurt Café is one of the fastest-growing franchises and I am honored to be part of such an amazing franchise support system during such an innovative time for the brand."
With the help of family members running the daily operations of the shop, Patel hopes to bring mall guests a place to experience healthy foods in a fun atmosphere. Patel also plans to open another Red Mango Yogurt Café & Juice Bar location later this year.
Based in Dallas and with more than 280 locations across the U.S., Mexico, El Salvador and Uruguay, Red Mango is a rapidly-expanding retailer of all-natural frozen yogurt, light foods and fresh cold-squeezed juices. Red Mango Yogurt Café & Juice Bars serve fresh, cold-squeezed juices made with raw, never heated whole fruits and vegetables, sandwiches and salads under 500 calories, fresh fruit smoothies, and uniquely delicious all-natural frozen yogurt fortified with live and active probiotic cultures like GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086).
