May 15, 2014, Dominican Republic – SmoothYo Frozen Yogurt, an international frozen yogurt concept, opened its first location and is poised for rapid expansion. The first store is located in the Dominican Republic and has disrupted the traditional frozen yogurt store business model.
With extremely low start-up costs and minimal space requirement, the inaugural SmoothYo store start-up costs were one-tenth of the industry average for frozen yogurt startups. Low start-up costs allow operators to turn a profit more quickly and also charge lower prices that are more suitable to the local market.
“SmoothYo is so easy to set up that you could start a shop literally anywhere in the world,” said Luis Macouzet Zepeda, owner of the SmoothYo store in the Dominican Republic. “And the frozen yogurt mix is incredible. It’s easy to use and customers love it!”
The SmoothYo Frozen Yogurt brand is part of a start-up package offered by Wudel Incorporated, manufacturers and distributors of Nanci’s Frozen Yogurt mixes and flavorings.
“The best part about the SmoothYo licensing concept is the flexibility,” commented Johny Wudel, Vice President at Wudel Incorporated. “We can help you with everything from a full scale frozen yogurt shop to a one machine kiosk.”
