To celebrate the opening, Menchie’s will spread smiles with a seven-day grand opening celebration from Sunday, July 20 to Saturday, July 26, packed with free giveaways including t-shirts, Menchie’s merchandise, family-friendly activities and free servings of its best-in-class frozen yogurt.
“With extensive experience in the corporate world and my partner, Jad Chawi, having run a successful business, we knew our combined skill set of management and marketing would allow us to be successful Menchie’s franchise owners,” said franchisee, Richard Khazzaka. “The fun-loving environment of Menchie’s is truly extraordinary and we cannot wait to make the Newington community smile with our best-in-class frozen yogurt.”
The new self-serve store offers an unparalleled experience that is welcoming, fun and interactive, with arts and crafts for kids, enjoyable music and indoor/outdoor seating areas where friends and family gather. Guests can choose from a variety of rotating yogurt flavors and delicious toppings for unlimited combinations, ensuring happiness in every cup.
Menchie’s is also committed to giving back to each community it serves. Stores partner with local schools in fundraising activities and education incentive programs. Each Menchie’s store donates thousands of dollars in cash and products annually to local schools to support student programs.
The company is a world leader in ensuring best-in-class products, and considers itself the ambassador of frozen yogurt quality worldwide. Menchie’s ensures that only the highest quality milk and flavors are used to make its frozen yogurt. The proprietary collection is made from the milk of “smiley” California cows, which have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). Menchie’s frozen yogurt contains live and active cultures and has received the Live and Active Culture (LAC) seal indicating its endorsement by the National Yogurt Association.
