Premium Frozen Yogurt Franchise Signs New Franchise Agreement in Virginia
January 30, 2020 // Franchising.com // MCLEAN, VA. - sweetFrog®, a premium frozen yogurt franchise known for its family-orientated culture, has signed a new franchise agreement with partners Kimberly Douglas and Jennifer Roseboro. The pair will open a colorful mobile truck with three frozen yogurt machines and two topping bars to Fairfax County.
sweetFrog is a proud member of Vet Fran and is committed to helping America’s first responders and military service members and veterans with entrepreneurship opportunities, which intrigued Douglas and Roseboro.

With Kimberly’s military experience and their combined dedication and commitment to sweetFrog®, they are ready for success as sweetFrog® franchisees,” said John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “We know McLean and the surrounding areas will be well-served by Kimberly and Jennifer.”
Douglas, Roseboro and every sweetFrog® franchisee have the benefit of unrivaled franchisee support from Kahala BrandsTM and its affiliates.
