Red Mango Frozen Yogurt & Smoothie Craze Hits Wheaton

The Red Mango frozen yogurt craze has officially made its way to Wheaton, Illinois with the opening of its new location in the Town Square Shopping Center at 233 Town Square, located between Chico’s and Francesca’s Collection. This location is one of over 160 new Red Mango stores that have opened across the country, and demand for this popular, all-natural, delicious brand continues to grow.

In September of 2011, Red Mango was named the #1 Zagat Rated chain in America for smoothies and frozen yogurt.  Dan and Michelle Houska, owners of the Wheaton store, are big believers in the brand and were determined to bring Red Mango to the people of Wheaton.

The Houskas are excited to share the “love for the swirl” with the Wheaton community. They will host a grand opening celebration on Friday, April 20 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

During the grand opening event, guests and customers will be treated to a free small yogurt with toppings; the first 100 guests to arrive will receive a free Red Mango tshirt; and attendees who register for the Club Mango loyalty program, or are already members, will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an iPad. However, the best treat of all, Dan Kim, the founder and chief concept officer of Red Mango, Inc., will be on-site to help celebrate this latest opening.

In 2011, Red Mango experienced one of the largest growths of all yogurt and smoothie chains. Red Mango credits the achievements to consumers who want healthier food options as well as business owners who want to be associated with a sophisticated frozen yogurt brand.

“We are excited to open this location and to share this outstanding product with the residents of Wheaton,” said Dan Houska. “Our store will offer 10 delicious flavors, which include staples like our addictive Original, as well as a rotating selection that provides a unique variety for every visitor at around 100 calories. We also serve a refreshing line of fresh fruit smoothies and all-natural, fruit and yogurt parfaits for a healthier lunch alternative.”

Well worth the wait, Red Mango serves delicious all-natural flavors of frozen yogurt including Pomegranate, White Peach, Caribbean Coconut, GhirardelliChocolate, as well as the new Classic line of flavors like Cake Batter and Vanilla Bean. It is nutritious and packed with probiotics for a healthy alternative frozen treat.  Each serving is low in calories and customers can garnish their yogurt with healthy, natural toppings including fresh fruit, nuts and granola; and fun toppings like gummy bears, Mochi, brownie bites and Boba Balls.“We are extremely excited to have so many local fans of our frozen yogurt in the short time the store has been open,” continues Dan.  “The entire team at Red Mango is excited about the April 20th grand opening event.  We thank the local community for their great reception and invite them to come by and have a tasty and refreshing treat on us.  We know they will fall in love with the flavorful pleasure that is Red Mango.”

Red Mango, one of the fastest growing retailers of all-natural nonfat frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies, opened its first U.S. store in July 2007 in Los Angeles, and has since celebrated more than 160 store openings across the U.S. Red Mango was named the number one smoothie and frozen yogurt chain in America in Zagat’s 2011 National Chain Restaurants Survey. Other awards have included the prestigious Nation’s Restaurant News’ “Hot Concepts!” award and the industry-recognized SupplySide’s “Scientific Excellence Award,” as well as best frozen yogurt honors in Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, Chicago, Utah and New York by highly-regarded independent publications. Headquartered in Dallas, Red Mango serves uniquely delicious frozen yogurt that is all-natural, nonfat and lowfat, gluten-free and fortified with beneficial live and active probiotic cultures like GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), which has been shown to promote digestive health and support the immune system when consumed as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Red Mango is the first frozen yogurt retailer to earn the National Yogurt Association’s Live and Active Cultures seal for meeting the required criteria for healthy frozen yogurt. Red Mango recently expanded its menu to include satisfying meal options such as its all-natural made-to-order fruit and yogurt parfaits and fresh fruit smoothies, and also introduced the world’s first all-natural probiotic iced teas that are hand-shaken to order.
