"After owning our first Menchie's store in Culver City and loving the brand personality and environment, we decided to open our second Menchie's in Westchester," said franchisee, Erica Acker. "Menchie's is truly a heart-centered brand with a strong focus on community involvement and family-friendly fun, so we know residents in the area will love what we have to offer."
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 Westchester Village is partnering with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during its grand opening and will be donating 10 percent of the entire week's sales to the organization.
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).
