Healthy Fast Food Acquires Rights to U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt Concept
Healthy Fast Food has announced that through U-Swirl International, its wholly owned subsidiary, it has acquired the worldwide rights to the U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt concept.
With the acquisition complete, Healthy Fast Food is anticipating rolling out the concept, starting in the Las Vegas valley, with multiple corporate stores open by spring 2009 and with plans on having a franchise program in place by the end of 2008.
Hank Cartwright, CEO of Healthy Fast Food, said: "We are very excited for the opportunity that U-Swirl brings to our company. The frozen yogurt segment is experiencing phenomenal growth and success on the west coast and we believe that the U-Swirl concept will be embraced nationally due to its self-serve cafe setting and renewed interest in frozen yogurt as a smart dessert alternative. Additionally, this concept helps diversify our company portfolio during these challenging economic times."
