October 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – Red Mango, one of the fastest growing retailers of healthy dining options and authentic frozen yogurt, has been honored for its national raw, cold-squeezed juice program at the inaugural HALO Awards ceremony, held recently in New Orleans.
Food News Media, publisher of QSR and FSR magazines, established the HALO Awards (Healthy Active Lifestyle Objective) to celebrate the menu innovation and messaging of restaurant chains across the nation that are making positive contributions towards consumers looking to live healthy and active lifestyles.
"We are honored to be recognized as a leader in the country for our passion to serve customers delicious and healthy eating options," said Dan Kim, founder of Red Mango. "This award is a huge affirmation not only for the success of our fresh cold-squeezed juice program, but also the monumental undertaking of redesigning stores, introducing juice bars and communicating a brand name that goes far beyond a treat destination. We have elevated the Red Mango experience for guests across our chain, and our dedication has never been greater to deliver the best menu with the highest-quality ingredients, nutrition and taste that our customers love."
The HALO Awards were designed to give chain restaurants that have made health-related contributions the widespread recognition they deserve and to spur further health-related innovations among restaurant chains. Honorees were chosen by a panel of restaurant, nutrition, and public health experts, including Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP, director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; Anita Jones-Mueller, founder and president of Healthy Dining; Sam Oches, editor of QSR magazine; Connie Gentry, editor of FSR magazine; and Sanders.

Red Mango Yogurt Cafe & Juice Bar serves customers fresh, cold-squeezed juices made with raw, never heated whole fruits and vegetables, made-to-order fresh fruit smoothies, and sandwiches and salads under 500 calories.
