It’s finally here! After many repeated requests from thousands of fans on Facebook and Twitter, Red Mango is introducing its newest frozen yogurt flavor, mango, in stores nationwide.
Red Mango, the fast-growing frozen-yogurt and smoothie quick serve, has taken its smoothies to the varsity level in a first-of-its-kind corporate partnership with Baylor University Athletics.
Never before has a deal been made between a fro-yo or smoothie quick serve and an NCAA Division 1-A college program, the company says. Red Mango will provide smoothies to Baylor athletes and strength training and conditioning staff in a move that emphasizes the impact of health and nutrition on athletic performance.
Red Mango Inc., one of the nation's fastest-growing retail franchise concepts, today announced the appointment of Barry M. Barron, Sr. as its chief executive officer.
Barron, a Dallas resident, brings extensive restaurant experience to the role, including six years leading Papa John's international expansion and 10 years in restaurant operations with Pizza Hut. Most recently, Barron was chief operating officer of ACE Cash Express, where he helped to grow the chain from 700 to 1,800 locations.
Red Mango, the fastest growing retailer of yogurt and smoothies, announced the expansion of its menu with the introduction of its new Spoonable Smoothies, wholesome anytime meals you can eat with a spoon, and its new Mealworthy Smoothies.
The launch signals the next step in the evolution of the brand as a destination for both frozen yogurt and smoothies. By adding these new healthy meal alternatives, Red Mango is giving calorie-conscious customers even more quick and portable dining options that are both delicious and nutritious.
Addressing a crowd of 700 aspiring small-business owners and entrepreneurs, Dan Kim, founder of Red Mango Yogurt and Smoothies, will share the business success strategies that have helped him establish the fastest-growing yogurt and smoothie chain in the nation as a speaker at The New York Times Small Business Summit on June 13th at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.
Now in its sixth year, the The New York Times Small Business Summit will bring an audience face-to-face with the nation’s most successful leaders in the small-business world.
You’ve heard of celebrity chefs entering the quick-service industry, but celebrity CEOs? Soon, they might be just as common. Take Chipotle’s Steve Ells, for example.
Red Mango announced a record year of franchise expansion in 2010. The company awarded agreements for 147 new locations, opened 62 new stores, and grew the network to 102 total open stores across 25 states.
"We turned tradition upside down in 2010," says Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer of Red Mango. "We grew a national chain in a down economy, and we did it without sacrificing our commitment to delivering the most nutritious and delicious menu items to consumers who are increasingly demanding healthier foods."
With the Fall 2010 college semester well under way, frozen yogurt and smoothie brand Red Mango is implementing a back-to-school program.
