Donper America has new flexible financing options designed to assist frozen yogurt franchise companies grow and expand their brands, Scott Amico, vice president of global business development, said in a company press release.
"By offering a variety of frozen yogurt packages and financing options for our high-quality, commercial refrigeration equipment, franchise owners are finding that they are able to grow and expand at a significantly lower cost and more rapid rate," he said.
The frozen yogurt industry has experienced an all-around resurgence in the last few years. While ice cream chains reported declining sales in 2011 and 2012, those in frozen yogurt have seen sales growth of about 11 percent in just 2012 alone.
Donper America's new financing program allows franchises to pay off the cost of their machines over time. By decreasing the amount of capital required right off the bat, franchisees are being given the opportunity to keep up with the aggressive growth of rival brands, Amico said.
"We are continuing to see our relationship with franchises grow, as more frozen yogurt companies find value in Donper America's flexible, convenient packages," he said. "We have proven success making it easy for franchise owners to expand."
