Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged one of the most successful first dates ever. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in a frozen-yogurt shop, that the pair was inspired to found their own.
They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, they found themselves with hundreds of thriving stores all around the world.
As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. So they put an adorable cast of animated characters throughout the stores and on the colorful spoons. More importantly, they let guests create endless dessert combinations from almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors and plenty of toppings displayed in help-yourself bins.
Made from fresh milk from a California dairy, the yogurt is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
