Healthy Fast Food Inc., parent to U-SWIRL International Inc., the owner and franchisor of U-SWIRL Frozen Yogurt stores, announced that it was honored with the 2009 Best of Business Award in the “Fast Food Restaurants and Stands” category by the Small Business Commerce Association.

The SBCA 2009 Award Program recognizes the top 5 percent of small businesses throughout the country. Using consumer feedback, the SBCA identifies companies that it believes have demonstrated what makes small businesses a vital part of the American economy. The selection committee chooses the award winners from nominees based on information taken from monthly surveys administered by the SBCA, a review of consumer rankings and other consumer reports.

“We are very pleased to have Healthy Fast Food and our U-SWIRL self-serve frozen yogurt stores distinguished as one of the best businesses in the food service industry,” says Hank Cartwright, chairman and CEO of Healthy Fast Food. “We believe that this type of recognition is a direct result of the effort we put into ensuring that each of our U-SWIRL stores stands apart as the preferred destination for locals to frequent and enjoy delicious frozen yogurt treats of their own personal creation.”
