Red Mango, Inc. Founder and Chief Concept Officer Dan Kim is adding to his accolades as the idea man behind the #1 Zagat-rated frozen yogurt and smoothies chain in America. Kim was recently presented with a Dallas Business Journal 2012 Minority Business Leader Award, a program that honors outstanding minority executives and entrepreneurs from leading North Texas companies for their hard work in the industry and community.
The Dallas Business Journal’s 5th Annual Minority Business Leader Awards Program recognized Kim, along with almost 30 other top minority business owners and corporate executives, at its awards luncheon at the Dallas Hyatt Regency on Feb. 16. The outstanding executives and entrepreneurs are also featured in the Feb. 17 issue of the Dallas Business Journal.
Having launched the very first Red Mango store in 2007, Kim built his business from the ground up. Today, Red Mango has ripened into a thriving national chain with more than 150 stores under Kim’s careful guidance.
“I’m honored to be recognized for doing something that I enjoy,” said Kim. “I followed my passion to offer consumers delicious and nutritious frozen yogurt and smoothies in a stylish and engaging retail atmosphere. Today that dream is a reality, and Red Mango is the true definition of healthy refreshment, changing the way people eat and live.”
Red Mango, also named the number one quick refreshment chain for “Healthy Options” by Zagat, offers over 40 flavors of frozen yogurt, made-to-order fruit and yogurt parfaits, probiotic iced teas, and more than 20 delicious varieties of smoothies. Kim further defines the experience at Red Mango to customers through engaging loyalty and frequency programs.
