June 16, 2014 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Red Mango®, one of the fastest growing yogurt and smoothie chains in America, is celebrating the opening of its 300th location and the company's signature new store design with an open house event 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 21 at Red Mango Yogurt Cafe & Juice Bar at 1044 Lake Street in Oak Park, Ill.
"It's a new era for the Red Mango brand and we are very excited to share it with our loyal fans in the Chicago area," said Dan Kim, Founder of Red Mango. "This new cafe and juice bar will be the perfect place for the community to hang out and enjoy fresh citrus and green juices along with other light and healthy foods that we have carefully crafted and tasted to make sure we only give our customers the best. I am very excited to celebrate our 300th location with guests in Oak Park."
Lifelong Oak Park residents James and Anneke Taglia are franchise owners of the 300th location thanks to their children, who became early Red Mango fans and regularly sought out the delicious yogurt and smoothies whenever they were craving a healthy and tasty treat. Impressed with the menu, the Taglias decided to invest in the business and were one of the first to bring the expanded Red Mango concept to their hometown.
The open house celebration will be open to the public and customers can enjoy free samples of new juices, iced coffees, smoothies, sandwiches, and wraps. Guests can register for a chance to win popular door prizes including three juicing machines that will be given away.
Red Mango Cafe & Juice Bar offers an extensive menu, including freshly squeezed juices and new cafe items such as sandwiches and wraps with less than 500 calories as well as a selection of more than 40 all natural frozen yogurts, fruit and yogurt parfaits, probiotic iced teas and natural smoothies that have made Red Mango famous. The cafe will be open Sunday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
"We are very excited to be a part of the growth of this brand and bring superior products to our Oak Park community," said Taglia. " At our new location we will be able to offer Red Mango fans not only the delicious and healthy frozen yogurt they crave, but also a variety of other nutritious and tasty menu items I believe will become a favorite of the community."
