“I was at the point in life where I was ready to reinvent myself and wanted to own a business with a model that matches my objectives in life, which are community involvement and guest experience,” said Jim Hach, a local resident and owner of Menchie’s Beckett Ridge, who has worked at the business operations end of the food industry for the past 30 years. “After an extensive search for a model that fit my criteria, there was no doubt that Menchie’s was just that.”

Menchie’s success comes from helping guests create memories in a family-friendly environment that is warm, welcoming, interactive and fun, providing guests with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas, family-friendly music, chalkboards for children to color on, and party rooms for birthday parties and events. As the only frozen yogurt store that provides toys and giveaways to children, Menchie’s has become every child’s favorite destination.

Menchie's is also actively involved in each community it serves. Stores partner with local schools in fundraising activities and education incentive programs. Each Menchie's store donates thousands of dollars in cash and products annually to local schools to support student programs.

Furthermore, the company is a world leader in ensuring best-in-class products, and considers itself the ambassador of frozen yogurt quality worldwide. Menchie’s ensures that only the highest quality milk and flavors are used to make its frozen yogurt. The brand’s exclusive private label collection is made from the milk of “smiley” California cows, which have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). Menchie’s frozen yogurt contains live and active cultures and has received the Live and Active Culture (LAC) seal indicating its endorsement by the National Yogurt Association.

Menchie’s makes guests smile by serving an unlimited mix of yogurt and toppings at a unique self-serve station with more than 100 rotating yogurt flavors from cake batter and pomegranate tart to chocolate silk and vanilla snow, and more than 70 rotating toppings including fresh fruits, granolas, nuts, an assortment of high quality candies and hot fudges.
