Some first dates are so magical they’ll change your life, and this was the case for Danna and Adam Caldwell. The lovebirds had their first date at a frozen-yogourt shop where they discovered a mutual passion for frozen yogourt (and each other). In 2007, the now husband-and-wife duo created Menchie’s.
Today, the frozen-yogourt franchise has grown to more than 250 locations around the world, and was ranked the fastest-growing chain in 2010. Each one, adorned with pictures of celebrities enjoying Menchie's treats on their walls, offers an assortment of self-serve yogourt flavours and toppings, which customers can mix into a yogourt cup or waffle bowl. The yogourt is made with fresh milk from Canadian dairy cows; many flavours are nonfat, no sugar added, and even vegan.

Yogurty's, a proudly Canadian company, claims that at their stores, no two customers have ever made the same exact treat twice. It would be nearly impossible—low- or no-fat, probiotic-rich frozen yogurt comes in more than 85 flavours, ranging from carmel latte to banana split to red velvet, and 65 toppings allow patrons to swirl, drizzle, and sprinkle tasty treats until they resemble works of icy art. Their gluten-free yogurt, a natural source of protein, calcium, and probiotics, is made from fresh milk right off of Canadian farms and supports healthy digestive systems and immunity. The cheerful stores showcase bright colors—nearly as bright as bubblegum and orange cream, topped with sour gummi worms, and rainbow sprinkles.
Six days a week, The Tea Room opens its doors at midday and welcomes tea-takers with pots of hot and aromatic teas, tiny sandwiches, and dainty pastries all made from scratch. In addition to à la carte quiche, soups, and sandwiches, afternoon tea packages bundle together sweet treats, such as scones, devon cream, and preserves, or savory platters of smoked salmon. Of course, teatime would be meaningless without the tea itself, and choosing from the huge variety of available loose-leaf options might prove to be the afternoon's most difficult challenge.
The chefs also prepare a variety of catering packages to entertain large parties for special events. Items are priced per person, so any size group can easily be accommodated.
