There are many reasons Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt is highly ranked as one of the top growing franchises by Entrepreneur magazine. First, it's the freedom of choice. Creamy deserts are a lot like romance: everybody has a type. With dozens of self-serve fro-yo flavors—including chocolate, peanut butter, strawberry cheesecake, and wedding cake— and an array of fresh fruit toppings, sugar-free options, and dairy-free offerings, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt allows taste buds to find their rightful suitor. Orange Leaf also features the perfect conduit for desert delivery with their special spoon, which features an aerodynamic handle and a shovel-shaped scoop fit for speedy indulgence or a hamster's rowboat.
Not content to stop at self-serve yogurt, Sweet Berry Frozen Yogurt also delights its customers with alternative frozen treats such as bubble tea and smoothies. Those looking to craft their own mountainous dessert from scratch can pull the lever of their desired yogurt flavors before heaping their cups with their choice of toppings. Meanwhile, chewy morsels of tapioca bob along the bottom of each bubble tea, which sails through straws in flavors such as watermelon, thai tea, green tea, and chocolate. The staff also blends up yogurt smoothies in flavors such as cheesecake and cookies 'n' cream, and taps lychee, avocado, and papaya nonyogurt smoothies from their frozen, semisoft trees.
Sweet Frog?s frozen-yogurt flavors go beyond the norm. In addition to original tart and strawberry banana, the lineup of 75 varieties includes snicker-doodle, red velvet cake, and dulce de leche. Patrons can sprinkle on toppings such as fresh fruit and candies, then savor their confetti?d confections in the lime-green-and-pink restaurant. Smiling frogs and funky white hanging lamps give the stores an air of fun, but founder Derek Cha is interested in giving more than that to the community; through Sweet Frog, he sponsors children in need and dispatches frog mascots to those who need encouragement.
Despite the shop’s short menu–just frozen yogurt and yogurt-based treats–no two trips to Yagööt are alike. Every few months, the shop shakes up its frozen-yogurt lineup, swapping in two new seasonal flavors to complement the Original and Strawberry yogurts available year-round. So, while one visit may have yielded a sweet cup of fresh raspberries and Strawberry fro-yo, the next could treat taste buds to an entirely different experience, perhaps caramel-drizzled Italian Cocoa or Oreos crumbled over Pomegranate yogurt.
