"I spent 27 years in the nursing industry, and after having received my graduate degree in community health and populations, I knew opening a Menchie's was the perfect way to use my community partnership skills to engage with Lacey residents," said franchisee Lynnette Truxal. "I am hopeful that this new location will bring residents and families together to not only share great yogurt, but to also get involved with the greater community as well."
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. Menchie's The Landing at Hawks Prairie is supporting its local community by partnering with Homeless Backpacks, an organization dedicated to ending youth homelessness in the area. Menchie's is asking its local community members to donate requested items such as tuna, granola bars and instant oatmeal in order to feed the homeless youth, and hopes to make a difference in the community.
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.
