Red Mango Frozen Yogurt Franchise Signs 20-Store Multi-Unit Franchise Development Agreement for Arizona
Red Mango, one of the most popular and fastest-growing retailers of authentic nonfat frozen yogurt franchises, has signed a multi-unit franchise development agreement with Namara RM-AZ for 20 stores in Arizona. The first location is scheduled to open this month at 7000 East Mayo Blvd., Bldg. 1 / Ste. 1020 in North Scottsdale.
Namara RM-AZ owns the Franchise rights to the state, and owner members include Ryan Rudd, Jonathan Rudd, Lauren Rudd and Gavin McCleary of Namara RM and David S. Layton of DJ Enterprises. The company currently operates seven Red Mango yogurt franchise stores in Utah.
“Consumers are more health-conscious today and retailers are trying to appeal to that,” said Ryan Rudd. “Our customers constantly tell us that once they try Red Mango there is nothing else that tastes quite like it. Red Mango has actually bridged the gap between health and great taste.”
Red Mango celebrates its grand opening in Arizona on June 20, and Rudd said North Scottsdale is an ideal market for the initial site.
“We believe the Scottsdale and Phoenix communities will embrace the Red Mango concept, and we are excited to expand throughout the state,” said Rudd. “Red Mango appeals to people who want healthier alternatives for food and treats and that consumer is highly represented in this area.”
Red Mango opened its first store in Los Angeles in July 2007, grew from eight to 40 locations in 2008 and expects to reach 80 stores by year’s end. The company plans to have 500 locations open or under development within the next four years.
Red Mango is currently holding franchise recruitment seminars in select markets across the country for business owners and entrepreneurs interested in learning more about the concept. Upcoming events are scheduled for June 9 in Los Angeles and July 15 in Washington, D.C.
