"With such an influx of Canadian tourists coming down to Niagara Falls to shop, I knew this was the perfect place to open a Menchie's," said franchisee Kevin Taylor. "I love the Menchie's concept and dedication to community service, which is why during our grand opening, we are partnering with Family & Children's Service of Niagara's Emergency Shelter services, a wonderful organization that helps families in the area. I know this Menchie's will be a perfect fit for our neighborhood, and I look forward to serving up yogurt and smiles!"
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. Guests can choose from a variety of rotating yogurt flavors and delicious toppings for unlimited combinations, ensuring happiness in every cup.
