Red Mango Valley Fair Pre-Launch Event
Fro-yo girl here. Thanks to Randy F. and our ever gracious hosts, Mark Young and Yul Kwon for tonight’s pre-launch event. The new Valley Fair location is gorgeous and I particularly love the Ball Chair by Eero Aarnio in Red Mango’s signature colors (red and white). It’s the nicest chair I’ve seen in a fro-yo shop.
During the event, attendees were treated to free fro-yo (and not just one cup in some cases...) They had all three flavors available: pomegranate (my favorite, the tangiest one), original and green tea. They had pomegranate seeds, mochi and the usual RM toppings.
Tomorrow (Friday, 1/16) will be their first day of business. They’re planning on having a Grand Opening event on Saturday, 1/24 with free fro-yo. More free fro-yo (yay)!
Today’s free fro-yo didn’t seem as smooth as I’m used to (from RM) but I was told that the fro-yo machines take 2 weeks to break in and they need to be calibrated for volume of fro-yo too.
What’s next for Red Mango? They’re still very interested in finding an SF location. Rumor has it that it’s likely to be at the nicest mall in town. Shhhh….you didn’t hear it from me.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
