Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt

Master Franchise Opportunity


The frozen yogurt industry is a wide-open game, and has produced huge numbers in the last decade. It is estimated that around 90% of U.S. households consume frozen desserts! ( The compound annual growth rate of the yogurt portion of the ice cream and frozen dessert market grew by a steady 2.5% from 2001-2006, to achieve an overall value of $4.81 billion for that period, and is slated to continue growing at that rate for the years 2011-2016.


And although it's in a highly competitive market, Zoyo as a local Phoenix brand is hot out of the gate, and is set for rapid growth (we look forward to adding to the $1 billion sales figures for 2010 in the coming years), with its attractive and easy-to-manage business model.


Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt was founded in early 2010 by Aaron Klusman and partners, with the goal in mind of purveying the freshest, healthiest frozen yogurt product available. 2 years later, we've met our expectations and even exceeded them! Accolades from Phoenix Magazine (Best Frozen Yogurt, Nov. 2011 Best of the Valley issue), and overwhelming positive reaction from the buying public show that Zoyo has the integrity and know-how to forge a winning concept and franchise family in the frozen yogurt industry.


This presents a truly exciting opportunity to run a quality (and very popular) business, and have fun in the process of becoming financially independent! A stellar opportunity to invest in an easy-to-manage, easy-to-finance franchise which has awesome potential for growth and long-term profitability, Zoyo is leading the way in its industry as an economical business model and healthy frozen yogurt alternative.


Zoyo maintains across-the-board cost cutting with an initial total unit investment of around $250,000, median price, as opposed to the norm, which can be nearly twice as much. The single-unit franchise fee is an ultra-low $35,000, which is also significantly less than normal.
