Red Mango Bows 200th Store in Texas
Only five years after opening its first location, Red Mango, America’s No. 1 Zagat-rated frozen yogurt and smoothies chain, has announced its 200th store will open in The Woodlands, Texas, this month.
Located in The Woodlands Crossing Shopping Center, the store welcomes customers in a few days, and will champion many honors for the fast-growing chain.
In addition to being the 200th location, the newest Red Mango will feature eight yogurt machines serving 16 different flavors, the most of any Red Mango location in North America.
The store also graduates franchise owner Jay Randle to the title of multiunit owner/operator. As one of the first people to introduce the brand to the greater Houston area, Randle is part of a growing Houston presence and larger franchising story that has expanded Red Mango from coast to coast.
“When it’s a great product like Red Mango, everything is right,” says Randle, who opened his first Red Mango at the Market Street Shopping Center in The Woodlands in 2009.
Randle has a three-store development agreement and is already looking at sites for his third location. He credits the brand’s core product of all-natural, kosher, gluten-free frozen yogurt that is rich in probiotics for much of that success.
“We think Red Mango tastes the best and is the best for you, and we hear that from guests all the time,” adds Randle, who runs the business with wife, Denise, and his sister, Debra Guindi. “Customers love swirling their favorite flavor and then adding toppings to create a completely unique concoction all their own.”
With stores open in 30 states across the country, locations in development in four more states, and successful entry into Mexico, Red Mango has expanded on a national and international level at record speed.
