Fro-yo girl here. I’m back from Glendale, CA where Menchie’s just opened its doors for the first time. Today was the soft opening. The first cup sold looked like a strawberry cheesecake creation (it wasn’t mine).
The new downtown Glendale location has 12 self-serve flavors a day, toppings (fruit, popping boba, candy, cookies, brownies, nuts, cereal), and sauces for 51 cents an ounce. They also have froyo cakes and Menchie’s merchandise.
I met with the owner, Mevis, who was inspired to open the shop by her husband’s passion for frozen yogurt. She also liked Menchie’s unique emphasis on the customer and the experience. Her favorite Menchie’s flavor is Nutella which was on tap today, along with a bottle of Nutella. Her husband’s favorite flavor is Original Tart.
The week long grand opening celebration starts on Saturday, February 25. The doors will open at 11 AM. The first 25 guests will receive a free t-shirt. The froyo is free from 12 PM – 2 PM. Menchie will be there on Saturday. Mevis says they’ll have their amazing Blackberry Burst froyo for the grand opening. The limited edition collectible Kiwi spoons are also in.
Join Menchie and the City of Glendale for the ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 5 PM.
Be sure to follow Menchie’s Glendale on Facebook and Instagram (@menchiessmile).
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
