Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt Irvine Earns Prestigious Three Swirls from IFYA
The International Frozen Yogurt Association's Swirl of Honor quality seal program is the only frozen yogurt specific program that recognizes frozen yogurt shops for their commitment to frozen yogurt excellence.
The Swirl of HonorTM Program was launched by the IFYA in late 2013 to recognize excellence in frozen yogurt. It is the first and only quality seal program specifically for frozen yogurt stores. Recipients receive one to three Swirls (1 = good, 2 = very good, 3 = excellent) based on how they meet IFYA standards.
"Golden Spoon is well known for its long-standing commitment to quality, taste, and health. They were part of the first wave of frozen yogurt in California. They're still here because they've cultivated a loyal customer base. I'm also impressed with their swirling skills. Each cup of froyo looks like a masterpiece,"
"My family wanted me to get into the frozen yogurt business. I liked how Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt offers an exciting healthy dessert option. We were ultimately persuaded by the premium taste of Golden Spoon. Also, the quality of the product just blew us away," said Simon Durrant, Golden Spoon Irvine's new owner. "Our 12 year old twins can't believe they can eat frozen yogurt whenever they like."
Durrant added, "Golden Spoon Irvine is proud to be receiving the Swirl of Honor accolade. As business owners, we pride ourselves on our high standards of customer service and cleanliness. We'd like to invite frozen yogurt fans to try us out. We know that once you do, you will love Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt."
Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt Irvine is located at 5365 Alton Parkway, Irvine, CA, 92604. Follow @goldenspoonirvine on Facebook and Instagram or @goldenspoonirvi on Twitter.

About Golden Spoon Irvine
Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt Irvine offers a relaxing atmosphere where fun is at our heart. Our frozen yogurt is a premium quality alternative to ice cream that tastes so good you will not believe it's not soft serve ice cream. It's also guilt free with zero fat (in all but three of flavors) and very few calories. Eating – and especially eating those sweet desserts – is an emotionally satisfying and an experience you can do with a little less guilt with Golden Spoon. From the Old-Fashioned Vanilla that tastes like the side of an ice cream sandwich you licked as a child to the Pumpkin Pie that taps into warm holiday memories, Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt provides more than dessert – it provides nostalgia for its consumers.
Golden Spoon is the ultimate frozen yogurt experience offering more than 50 different flavors, including favorites like Cake Batter, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Malt alongside creative selections like Tiger's Blood and Lemon Tea Sorbet. Add a variety of toppings to your heart's delight and enjoy this iconic Orange County treat.
Golden Spoon is different from many other frozen yogurt chains because it provides personal service to customers. Its yogurt is custom-made and doesn't use any powdered products.
Golden Spoon started in 1981 as an outgrowth of a Tustin health food store called "Yogurt and Things." Golden Spoon founder Jeff Barnes dropped the "Things" and focused on frozen yogurt. As the '80s yogurt craze died off, Barnes focused on what separates Golden Spoon from other yogurt shops, making the chain the "ice cream lover's frozen yogurt." The chain aims to keep its yogurt tasting like ice cream while keeping the nutritional aspects of yogurt.
Golden Spoon has a "Weightless Pricing Concept," which allows customers to pay in advance on a per-cup basis and elevates the service experience.
Did you know? Golden Spoon replaced all of its Styrofoam cups with biodegradable containers made of a patented process of tapioca and bamboo, allowing it to disintegrate after disposal in less than a month without any negative environmental impacts.
