Red Mango Frozen Yogurt & Smoothies Opens First Pennsylvania Store in Wayne
The Red Mango frozen yogurt craze has officially arrived in Pennsylvania with the opening of its very first location in Wayne at 150 East Lancaster, in May 2012. This location is one of over 180 new Red Mango® stores that have opened across the country, and demand for this popular, all-natural, delicious brand continues to grow.
Jaime and Matthew Whitcomb, owners of the Wayne, PA store, are big believers in the Red Mango brand and product and were determined to bring Red Mango to the residents and businesses of Wayne and the surrounding communities. The Red Mango concept, both as a business venture and as a healthy alternative was a perfect match for the Whitcombs to introduce to the area, citing Red Mango’s commitment to health, taste, and style.
The Whitcombs are excited to share the “love for the swirl” and will host a grand opening celebration on Saturday, June 23, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
During the grand opening event, guests and customers will be treated to a free small yogurt with toppings, and the first 100 guests to arrive will receive a free Red Mango t-shirt. Additonally, attendees who register for the Club Mango loyalty program, or are already members, will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win Red Mango gift cards.
The Red Mango Wayne team aims to create a strong community atmosphere and be as involved as possible. As part of their commitment, they are donating a portion of proceeds from the Grand Opening to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter’s “Light the Night” campaign. “Red Mango has found a home in Wayne after just a month in business,” says Jaime. “We have been welcomed with open arms-- and mouths--by the community and other business owners and organizations and we want to give back.”
In 2011, Red Mango experienced one of the largest growths of all yogurt and smoothie chains, and in September of 2011, was named the #1 Zagat Rated chain in America for smoothies and frozen yogurt. 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 so excited to open the first Red Mango in Pennsylvania and to share this outstanding product,” said Jaime. “Our store offers 10 delicious flavors, which include staples like our addictive Original, as well as a rotating selection of over 40 different flavors that provide a unique variety for every visitor at around 100 calories. We also serve a refreshing line of fresh fruit smoothies, all-natural, fruit and yogurt parfaits for a healthier lunch alternative as well as probiotic lemonades and iced teas.”
Well worth the wait, Red Mango serves delicious all-natural flavors of frozen yogurt including Pomegranate, White Peach, Caribbean Coconut and Pineapple, as well as the new Classic line of flavors like Milk Chocolate 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 Popping Boba.
Jaime states that the taste of the yogurt simply sells itself--and the probiotic health benefits and fresh fruit toppings make it easy for customers to enjoy Red Mango regularly as a healthy lifestyle choice.
“We are extremely excited to have so many local fans of our frozen yogurt in the short time the store has been open,” says Jaime. “Our modern, hip decor and store atmosphere offers a comfortable spot to socialize with friends and for mommies and little ones to meet up with each other. We also offer free wifi to all our customers.” Red Mango Wayne will also offer the "Good Neighbor Program" which allows non-profit organizations to work with Red Mango to sponsor events in which 20% of sales will go to their organization.
“The entire team at Red Mango is so excited about the June 23rd grand opening event. We thank everyone for their great reception thus far 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.”
