Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is gearing up to open a new location this spring at the highly anticipated retail shopping center, RedStone.

Domeica, owner/operator, said they have been working to open their doors for the last several months and are thrilled to be part of the Indian Land community.

We got the scoop for Y’all. Check out this exciting Q&A for all the yummy details!

Discover Indian Land: Do you have a projected opening date for Indian Land?

Menchies: Projected Opening is TBD. Construction is ongoing and progressing well. We would like to open as soon as possible; however, will need to coordinate openings with other tenants in the center. This will ensure guests have a wonderful overall experience at Redstone.

DIL: Why did you pick Indian Land, SC?

Menchies: Given the significant growth experienced over the past several years, Indian Land was an ideal location to open our Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Being located in this area will allow us to have guests come from various places – including Indian Land, Fort Mill, Ballantyne, and Lancaster – to enjoy the Menchies experience.

DIL: What is your favorite Menchie’s flavor?

Menchies: My personal favorite flavor is Toasted Marshmallow. It tastes just like marshmallows at a campfire.

DIL: The mission statement for Menchie’s is: “We Make You Smile”, and this is exactly what we experienced at the Dilworth location. Is this something we can also expect at the Indian Land location? 

Menchies: Absolutely. Menchie’s mission statement is “we make you smile”. That smile is always present on Menchie’s face and is there to remind us of the mission bestowed on each and every one of our team members. This mission is the roadmap to achieving our vision statement – “to make the Menchie’s experience available to every guest all over the world as a legacy for generations to come.”

DIL: Where did the name Menchie’s come from?

Menchies: “Mench” means a good person, and the founders thought it was the perfect name for the company.

DIL: When and where did Menchie’s start? 

Menchies: Menchie’s opened its first store in Valley Village, a suburban community of Los Angeles, California, on May 15, 2007, by husband & wife team Danna & Adam Caldwell. The Menchie’s concept emerged from a story of two lovebirds and their common love of frozen yogurt when Adam took Danna to a frozen yogurt store on their first date; that was when Danna’s sweet tooth took over, and the world of frozen yogurt was never the same again. With over 550 stores, the franchise has locations open in the United States, Canada, China, Japan, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, India, and more. Menchie’s expects to celebrate 600 stores soon.

DIL: What makes Menchie’s stand apart from some of the other froyo places? 

Menchies: Menchie’s redefines the world’s frozen yogurt experience by “going the extra SMILE” with our guests. Every guest who enters our store has a visit that is full of smiles, laughter, and fun.

We provide guests at each life cycle with an experience and value that no other frozen yogurt company can provide:

Smiles – Our mission is to make each and every guest smile. Our unparalleled store experience provides a destination where guests create lasting memories, smile, laugh, spend time with friends and family, and have fun!

Frozen Yogurt – Menchie’s 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 proprietary collection is made from the milk of “smiley” California cows, which have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). Menchie’s frozen yogurt is real yogurt as it contains live and active cultures and has received the Live and Active Culture (LAC) seal indicating its endorsement by the National Yogurt Association.

Variety – Menchie’s offers something for everyone, including nonfat, gluten-free, low calorie, no sugar added and dairy-free options, and an array of toppings, including fresh fruits, candies, chocolates, syrups, and granola!

Cakes – Menchie’s offers delicious frozen yogurt cakes for all your party occasions, and you can customize your cake with your favorite flavors, toppings, and designs!

Experience – The self-serve aspect allows our guests to create the exact mix the way they like it. In addition, we have chalkboards for kids to color on, upbeat music, relaxing indoor and outdoor seating, arts & crafts, and balloons for children, spoons in the shapes of the Menchie’s Sweet Friends, and fun for the whole family.

Community – Menchie’s focuses on people and community before commerce, and we deliver on that promise by “going the extra smile” through local fundraising efforts, raising thousands of dollars annually for schools and charities.

My lifetime search for this ideal locale began in medieval Leicester, England. Next came Cleveland, Ohio. After many years on the shores of Lake Erie, the desire for a warmer climate led me to San Diego. Eventually, the high cost of West Coast living took its toll, prompting another move. Looking back, as a mother of 3 who enjoys a quiet life among hospitable neighbors in the ideal climate, l really believe Indian Land is my Shangri-la. That's why, with the encouragement of family and friends, l launched DIL in 2016.
