Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world.

As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations. There are almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors, and the selection includes eight versions of vanilla. Of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy.

The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a California dairy, and it is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.

Proudly bearing the title CE Yo, Nick Battiato fills the roster at Yo-Yo's Frozen Yogurt with rotating seasonal flavors, filling cups with dairy- and fat-free swirls. Self-serve machines, each tucked beneath a colorful sign bearing the name of the flavor within, fill cups with sweet soft-serve yogurt, while a black-and-white-checkered toppings bar stands ready to help bedeck treats with sprinkles and settle the score between two feuding chess masters. Local artwork dots the bright-yellow walls, inviting perusal as patrons sip on individually brewed cups of coffee. Yo-Yo's also gladly takes requests for flavors and toppings.

A childhood of baking alongside her mother and grandmother inspires Patti's work, especially her custom cake creations. At her first bakery she won much acclaim for her buttercream, which is rich without being cloyingly sweet?much like a millionaire before his life's transformed by a loveable orphan. Since moving on to Periwinkle's, Patti's kept creating one-of-a-kind confections for her new clientele. Most recently, she consulted with a little girl who, in a quiet voice, requested a "scary jungle cake." Together they scoured the Internet for inspiration, designing a cake the celebrant later said was the best part of her party. This, says Patti, is exactly what motivates her to keep baking.
