Yogurtland Goes Down Under with Australian Franchise Deal

    Industry News | December 11, 2012

    Now with more than 200 locations in the U.S., Mexico, and Guam, Yogurtland announces growth plans for Australia.

    The company has signed a 50-store development agreement with entrepreneur Paul Siderovski. The first location is set to open in McArthur Square, Campelltown, Sydney, in January 2013.

    “Yogurtland’s premium, high-quality yogurt and unique, appealing flavors set the company apart from frozen yogurt competitors,” Siderovski says. “Consumers in Australia will appreciate the self-serve experience. That’s why we chose to bring Yogurtland to Australia.”

    Siderovski and his team are planning to open 10–12 locations by the end of 2013. Each Yogurtland shop will employ between 20 and 25 people.

    “Bringing Yogurtland to Australia is an exciting milestone for our company’s growth,” says Larry Sidoti, vice president of franchise development at Yogurtland. “We are confident Paul and his team will be very successful and consumers will be delighted by the Yogurtland brand.”

    Yogurtland opened its first location in Fullerton, California, in 2006, and quickly popularized the self-serve frozen yogurt concept by offering the industry’s best-quality frozen yogurt served with a wide array of premium, popular toppings in a friendly, clean environment.

    Yogurtland is aggressively expanding throughout the United States, as well as internationally. The company is actively seeking qualified franchisees throughout the U.S. and for international expansion.

    Last year Yogurtland served more than 49 million cups of frozen yogurt.
