The Yog Bar Becomes 1st Frozen Yogurt Shop in the UK to Receive Swirl of Honor Designation
The Swirl of Honor program expands to the UK. The Yog Bar of The Wirral earned the highest honor, three swirls. The prestigious quality seal program from the International Frozen Yogurt Association recognizes frozen yogurt shops around the world.
The Swirl of HonorTM Program was launched by the IFYA in late 2013 to recognize excellence in frozen yogurt. As the first and only quality seal program specifically for frozen yogurt stores, the IFYA developed stringent quality standards and evaluates shops based on frozen yogurt quality, store cleanliness, superior customer service, and environmentally friendly business practices. Recipients receive one to three Swirls (1 = good, 2 = very good, 3 = excellent) based on how they meet IFYA standards. The program helps consumers identify the best frozen yogurt shops.
“The IFYA is thrilled to welcome The Yog Bar to the Swirl of Honor TM program. We are proud to recognize a shop of The Yog Bar’s caliber, one that has demonstrated its commitment to healthy, all natural frozen yogurt served in a fun environment. We love that they have a delicious product and unique seasonal flavors like mulled wine and apple & cinnamon,” said Susan Linton, IFYA President. “The founders, two awesome sisters, have much to be proud of and have demonstrated their commitment to quality and superior customer service. They were the first to bring frozen yogurt to The Wirral.”
Stephanie and Charlotte Hodson, sisters who run The Yog Bar in the small town of Hoylake on The Wirral, say it’s a dream come true! Since they opened their shop almost a year ago, they always wanted to be up there with the top American Frozen Yogurt chains and they believe with the help of the Swirl of Honour programme, they have achieved that!
“Here at The Yog Bar, we are extremely honored to be have been presented with 3 swirls from the IFYA in recognition of their ‘Swirl of Honour’ programme. We have always set out to be the best, bring something different to the Frozen Yogurt Industry as well as offer high quality Yogurt and toppings. It’s brilliant that from all the way across the Pond, the IFYA in California believe we should be awarded a possible 3 stars out of 3 and have acknowledged all the hard work we put into our business on a daily basis to maintain our reputation.”
