Signs of Asian Ownership

Fro-yo girl here. The majority of the tart fro-yo shops in the Bay Area are Asian owned. Having visited many shops, I noticed that there are certain indicators of Asian ownership, including:

(1) Presence of orchids, bamboo plants or money trees wrapped with red ribbons. Bamboo plants are considered to be lucky and are used in feng shui to represent the element of wood.

(2) Asian fro-yo toppings, particularly red bean paste, lychee, jackfruit, and jellies. Most shops have mochi balls now but if they don't, you can be fairly sure that the owners aren't Asian.

(3) Asian employees

(4) The shop is a year old (or newer) and specializes in tart fro-yo or self-serve fro-yo.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
