The Brand

Yogurt Mountain is a leading operator and franchisor of self-serve frozen dessert establishments. Fun, energetic and friendly, each Yogurt Mountain location offers a variety of high quality ever-changing frozen dessert flavors, an assortment of over 60 exciting toppings as well as other dessert accompaniments; all of which tempt the self-serve guest to explore their creative side and imaginatively tailor their YOMO experience with each visit.

Yogurt Mountain’s brand permeates everything we do. Our stores are youthful, but not juvenile. Everyone feels comfortable in a Yogurt Mountain—preschoolers to senior citizens can enjoy frozen treats with family and friends at YOMO.

The branding of Yogurt Mountain goes beyond the walls of each store. Yogurt Mountain builds strong relationships with customers and seeks to support local communities through fundraising, sponsorships and providing a place to celebrate life’s memories like birthdays and team parties.

The Product

Yogurt Mountain’s product line-up is diverse and features a wide variety of frozen treats: ice cream, sorbet, custard, and tropical ice in addition to frozen yogurt. Yogurt Mountain serves only the highest quality soft-serve products. Natural flavors & colorings are used when possible.

All of our yogurts have live and active cultures and are certified to have 5 culture strains, including 3 probiotics, more than any others in the marketplace. The reduced-fat ice creams (gelato) and custards are all rich, delicious, decadent-tasting products. Sorbets and Tropical Ice flavors are refreshing, non-dairy items perfect for hot summer days.

Flavor Innovation – The relationship with our dairy provides the opportunity to produce proprietary recipes. Aunt Ida’s Poundcake, S‘mores, Sour Power Berry Blue Sorbet, Sour Green Apple, Butterscotch, and Grape Soda Sorbet are just some of the many proprietary recipes that have made appearances at Yogurt Mountain.

Be Your Own Boss With YOMO’s Training & Ongoing Support

Each Yogurt Mountain franchisee and store manager completes an 11-day training regimen comprised of classroom, hands-on with machinery and store shifts. The Operations Manual containing procedures and best practices is thoroughly reviewed. When completed, franchisees are ready for all aspects of the business.

Corporate representation is generally on-site the first week of operation of a franchisee’s first store. Yogurt Mountain provides this assistance as a safety net as real-life situations face the franchisee and new crew members.

“Yogurt mountain — the product sells itself. Best tasting yogurt, custard, ice cream, sorbet in the market. Keep a clean store and friendly attentive staff and customers will return again and again.”
— Chris Shiner, Franchisee | Yogurt Mountain Huntsville & Hampton Cove, AL

“As an experienced franchisee with other systems, I can confidently say that Yogurt Mountain offers the best of both worlds—proven systems, processes, buying and marketing power that comes with a top notch franchise, and the small company feeling that comes from having all decision makers at Headquarters just a phone call away.”
