Menchie's Introduces Vegan Option, With More to Come!
Menchie’s, the world’s largest self-serve frozen yogurt chain, recently made the announcement that it would be offering a vegan option for a limited time, with more to follow.
For January, the dairy-free alternative is Tahitian Vanilla, made from Indonesian coconut milk, Tahitian vanilla, with agave syrup used as the sweetener. The franchise already includes vegan toppings, including Oreo cookie chunks, nuts, berries, fruits, and more.
The option is available only at participating stores, and a manager from one of the locations that offers it stated: “it was so popular that we sold out”, and the particular location will continue to offer it as a regular flavor due to its popularity!
With 500 locations worldwide, the inclusion of some vegan flavors demonstrates that the franchise is paying attention to customer requests and preferences, and following in the footsteps of similar chains that have already included dairy-free alternatives. According to Menchie’s,
“Menchie’s is making it a point in 2016 to offer new flavors with dairy alternatives, like coconut and almond milk, to reach out to guests who might not be able to enjoy the typical dairy options.”
Customers can expect more variety and options this year, and hopefully the popularity and demand will result in consistent vegan alternatives rather than limited-time offers!
