Red Mango opened its first Florida location earlier this year in Gainesville to record turnout. Now the company is poised to add 12 more locations throughout the state.

Red Mango recently signed franchise agreements with two Florida-based entrepreneurs. Phil Okun has signed a development agreement to open five stores, starting with the first Red Mango in Boca Raton. And Enrique Aguerrevere has signed a three-store multiunit agreement for the Miami area.

Okun and Aguerrevere join Florida franchisee Terri Keogh, who opened the state’s first Red Mango last March. Keogh plans to develop five locations total, and will open her second store later this year in Tallahassee.

“The first Florida Red Mango immediately attracted a huge audience and continues to build its customer base,” says James Franks, vice president of franchising for Red Mango.

“It was clear that Florida was ready for more Red Mango. Now, thanks to these new development agreements, we’re able to share our healthy, nutritious frozen yogurt, smoothies, and parfaits with some of the hottest markets in the state.”
