Yoga-urt Now Offering Franchise Opportunities in the USA

After eight successful years of operation, Yoga-urt, a 100% vegan and gluten-free soft-serve dessert chain, reveals it is now launching its franchise concept.

The Los Angeles-based dessert company states that the franchise opportunities make it the first 100% vegan and gluten-free soft-serve ice cream chain in the area. Yoga-urt differentiates itself from other providers by using only organic and natural plant-based ingredients with no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.

“Customers love our soft serve ice cream and given the high demand and growth, we are proud to take the next step in developing the brand through franchising,” said Melissa Schulman, founder of Yoga-urt. “We hope to inspire a new generation of business owners who want to cement their legacy in the organic food and wellness industry.”

Schulman opened her first Los Angeles store in 2015, and eight years later, the flavors are still made fresh daily from organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free ingredients and fortified with probiotics for digestive and immune health. It has successfully opened two additional stores and now serves several neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles.

Yoga-urt’s three stores are also all certified as California Green Businesses, offering compostable or recyclable paper products, from spoons to cups. Yoga-urt franchisees are not required to be officially certified, but they do adopt the brand’s eco-friendly paper products and practices.
