New Menchie's Store at Alamo Ranch Celebrates Grand Opening with Week of Fun Festivities

Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt Store Fulfills Cravings with Family-Friendly Treats

October 31, 2014 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO – Menchie's, the friendliest place on earth with a mission to make every guest smile, will open its newest store at Alamo Ranch located at 5619 W. Loop 1604 N., San Antonio, TX 78253 on Saturday, November 1. Offering high quality, delicious self-serve frozen yogurt, Menchie's is sure to become a San Antonio favorite!

To celebrate the opening, Menchie's will spread smiles with a seven-day grand opening celebration from Saturday, November 1 to Friday, November 7, packed with free giveaways including t-shirts, Menchie's merchandise, family-friendly activities and free servings of its best-in-class frozen yogurt. Throughout the week, guests can also enter for a chance to win free frozen yogurt for a year and an iPad Air.

"After working in the government realm for most of our professional careers, we decided to transition into franchising with Menchie's," said franchisee Kassie Fitzgerald. "Menchie's is unique because not only is the product superior, but also the people involved with the brand. We know the San Antonio community will embrace us, leaving with smiles on their faces."

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.

Menchie's is also committed to giving back to each community it serves. Stores partner with local schools in fundraising activities and education incentive programs. Each Menchie's store donates thousands of dollars in cash and products annually to local schools to support student programs. To kick off the grand opening week, Menchie's Alamo Ranch is supporting its local community by partnering with the Northside Education Foundation to give back to the schools in the area. The store will be donating 10 percent of all grand opening week sales to the foundation.

The company is a world leader in ensuring best-in-class products, and considers itself the ambassador of frozen yogurt quality worldwide. Menchie's ensures that only the highest quality milk and flavors are used to make its frozen yogurt. The proprietary collection is made from the milk of "smiley" California cows, which have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). Menchie's frozen yogurt contains live and active cultures and has received the Live and Active Culture (LAC) seal indicating its endorsement by the National Yogurt Association.

Menchie's Alamo Ranch is located at 5619 W. Loop 1604 N., San Antonio, TX 78253 and is open on Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, please visit www.menchies.com.
