Legendary Hall of Fame NBA Player Hakeem Olajuwon Set to Open
First Red Mango Yogurt Café Smoothie and Juice Bar in Mont Belvieu, Texas
January 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // Dallas, TX – Famed NBA Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon is no stranger to a good slam dunk and his next one comes with his plans to open the first Red Mango Yogurt Café Smoothie and Juice Bar in Mont Belvieu, Texas. The store, located at 9675 Eagle Drive, will be co-branded with Nestle Toll House Café by Chip, offering customers their choice of both nutritious and indulgent treats.
“Quality of life is everything to me and it was important that I work with a brand that shares those same principles and values. I wanted to offer the public something healthy and Red Mango fit the bill with its fresh, high-quality and flavorful menu,” said Olajuwon. “Mont Belvieu is a rapidly growing community with a great opportunity for businesses of all kinds. We have listened to the community and it is clear to us that there is a demand for a yogurt café and juice bar.”
Olajuwon’s location, slated to open Spring 2017, will showcase an expanded concept, which Red Mango has been rolling out nationwide, that serves raw, ice-filtered juices and made-to-order cafe meals under 500 calories in addition to the frozen yogurt, fresh smoothies, and parfaits that have made Red Mango famous.
“We’re excited to welcome Hakeem to the Red Mango family,” said Rudy Frederico, Director of Franchise Development for Red Mango FC, LLC. “We look forward to working with him to build his business and offer the community of Mont Belvieu a perfect place to sit back, relax and dig in to a delicious variety of yogurts, smoothies, parfaits and fresh juices.”
