Menchie’s has announced the opening of its 200th location worldwide. The new store marking this milestone is in Adelaide, South Australia. Today, Menchie’s has locations in six countries and 31 states, and has achieved this growth milestone within five years from when the company first began in California.
"Opening our 200th store is a testament to our ‘we make you smile’ philosophy, and it’s our franchisees and team members who made this happen and propelled the emotional connection that Menchie’s has with communities around the world," said Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie’s. "We pride ourselves in being the friendliest place on Earth, and our franchisees and team members have made millions of Menchie’s fans smile across the globe."
In addition to opening its 200th store, Menchie’s expansion continues as the company is poised to have 300 open locations by the end of this year, and expects to celebrate 500 open stores in 2013. Menchie’s opens an average of 10 stores per month and is expanding worldwide.
"Our guests often tell us that they visit Menchie’s not only for the great product but more importantly, because of our values and our commitment to community. They believe in our philosophy of making the world a better place," Kleinberger said.
Menchie’s serves an unlimited mix of yogurt and toppings at a unique self-serve station with more than 100 rotating yogurt flavors from cake batter and pomegranate tart to chocolate silk and vanilla snow, and more than 70 rotating toppings including fresh fruits, granolas, nuts, an assortment of high quality candies and hot fudges.
