Lower Your Operational Costs with IFYA's Discounts for Frozen Yogurt Shops

Fro-yo girl here. When I founded the International Frozen Yogurt Association in 2013, one of the main goals was to help current and prospective frozen yogurt shop operators be more successful. When I spoke to frozen yogurt store operators about how the frozen yogurt association might help them, they talked about the importance of saving on operational costs.

We researched suppliers and developed partnerships with top quality suppliers who were willing to offer IFYA member discounts. We are pleased that 
IFYA members now enjoy savings on a wide variety of products and services. These discounts can save shops thousands of dollars a year. 

Basic IFYA membership is still free. IFYA premium members ($50/year) enjoy access to additional discounts.
