I’ve been reading your blog the last couple of days…….my husband and I are looking into franchising a frozen yogurt place but just wasn’t sure which one to go with. I’ve been reading through what you’ve said about Orange leaf, Menchies etc. Have you any thoughts on Yo Fresh? Any suggestions on which one’s to stay away from?

Also,.. we were thinking of starting up the business ourselves vs franchising one. Any thoughts?

Hi Len,

Thank you for visiting!

I’m not familiar with Yo Fresh — there are way too many frozen yogurt franchises crowding the marketplace. I strongly prefer going with a national brand because you’ll have a much better chance at survival once the inevitable shakeout occurs. I’m an advocate of franchising because you’ll have the support of a much larger organization versus being completely on your own, and it worked out well for me. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, and you’ll have the benefit of your franchisor’s years of experience (and mistakes!).

I have two new interviews with frozen yogurt executives coming out next week. Please check them out.

Best regards,

I am really interested in opening up an orange leaf in Michigan. The area I live does not have any competition as far as Yogurt Stores. They have an old fashioned Dairy Queen that has seating for out doors only, therefore they have tot shut down in the winter. They do very well in the spring through the fall, but I think if they had an indoor seating, they could remain open all year and do much better. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the approximate cost of the product in order to determine the gross profit. I have seen a variance of gross sales, but that really does not help when it comes to bottom line. I realize there are costs for the actual building , equipment and set-up. But what about the cost for the yogurt. Please advise. Thank you.
