Frozen yogurt blog

This is my attempt to write about the frozen yogurt business, after a friend kept bugging me in September 2006, to check out Pinkberry www.pinkberry.com.   I went to LA and was amazed to see the crack berry craze for this simple frozen yogurt. They had a line out the door, and the yogurt taste amazing.  The first bite is a little tart.  But you get a  choice of healthy toppings, nut,granola, blueberries, mango, strwberries etc.  In LA I was introduced to friends of a friend who was from Korea.   They new all about Pinkberry and told me that Pinkberry copied the concept from a company in Korea called Red Mango. Red Mango at the time, had about 120 locations in Korea, and was slow to get a started in the USA. My new Korean friends invited  me to Korea in October.   I love to travel and thought it would be lots of fun to get out of town, with the excuse of looking into another business.

Red Mango was everywhere in Korea.   They where not as popular as the Pinkberry in LA,  but they where doing a fair amount of business, plus they were all over Seoul. When I got back, I started looking for locations in Marin county Ca, just north of the golden gate-bridge. In this Blog I will try and share my experiences.

  3. Hi,
    I found this blog amazing. I was just sad that you haven’t continued. I am dreaming of starting a fro yo place overseas. But I want to do it a bit differently make it self serve with self serve toppings and charge by weight.

    But I don’t know where to get the recipes for the different yogurt flavors. Do you have any ideas? The best part is that I won’t have to deal with health codes and such, we don’t have any. How is your business going? I would love to hear the updates. Also any help you can give me would be wonderful. Thanks
    Good Luck.
