Menchie's is new to Missouri, according to Steffanie Campbell, who, along with her husband, Jim, are the franchisees for the store.
The Campbells first encountered Menchie’s while on vacation in Florida, and said they found the great food and fun atmosphere irresistible.
They hope to offer an unparalleled experience that is welcoming, fun and interactive, with arts and crafts for kids, enjoyable music and indoor/outdoor seating areas where friends and family gather. Guests are able to choose from more than 100 rotating yogurt flavors and a variety of more than 70 toppings for unlimited combinations. Flavors range from fruity sorbets and nonfat yogurts such as black cherry, shredded coconut and apple pie; to luscious lowfat yogurts including fudge brownie batter and chocolate peanut butter cup. These can be topped with fresh fruit, nuts, granola, candy, sauces or hot fudge to make a treat that’s as healthy or decadent as each guest prefers.
“We absolutely fell in love with Menchie’s, and we know the family-oriented Fenton community will too,” said Jim Campbell.
