Interested In A HCFY Franchise?
As enthusiastic entrepreneurs and owners of an independent business, we are on the path to making our financial goals a reality. Read our information below about how our company started, our franchise system, and what we can do to make your financial goals a reality.
Founded in 2012, by Ray Perez and Bill & Connie Rogers, Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt quickly proved itself to be a favorite with its customers. Within a matter of months from the grand opening of our first store, we were busy and generated enough traffic to begin planning our second store. With our brand recognition in place, we opened our second store just 17 miles from our first location, and far exceeded our initial projections and doubled the sales volume of our first grand opening event. It was clear to us at that moment, it was time to pursue franchise opportunities and allow others to share in our success and grow our brand more broadly.
We will share our recipe for success; a customer centric philosophy, the highest quality products, and a brand that promotes an experience that sets us apart from our competitors. Combined, we have more than 50 years of experience in Business Administration, Accounting, Finance and Risk Management. We specialize in Restaurant Operations, and know how to streamline a yogurt store so that even someone with no restaurant experience can be successful. We will be with you each step of the way, and your success will be our success!
Prior to creating our brand, we toured more than 30 independent yogurt stores across three states. We developed an idea of what we liked, and what we did not. We learned what was successful and what others did that hampered their growth. We did not want to be like every other chain and our patron feedback tells us that we got our model right. There are many frozen yogurt stores in the market, but none quite like Happy Cow. We envisioned a brand that make others feel at home.
That is realized by our dark rich floors, crown molding, and Corian countertops. We also wanted to attract kids of all ages, and this was achieved with our adorable cow mascot. We focused on colorful, warm and inviting furniture and fixtures while making the experience fun and memorable. Our in-store graphics tell a story about our desert concept and our slogan, “C’mon Get Happy”, communicates exactly what we strive to deliver.
We focused on every detail as if we were building our home, and our patrons, (young and old alike) compliment us on how cute and adorable the décor is. Our guests tell us that visiting Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt® is more than just getting dessert. Most recently, Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt was voted #1 two years in a row in our area by consumers for Best Ice Cream/Dessert, beating out top brands like ColdStone, Baskin Robins, Bruster’s and Twistee Treat!
The leaders of Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt® know what it takes to run a successful business. We have been dedicated to making our model a success and we want our future franchisees to know that we care about your investment. You will have access to a strong network of talent and will have someone available to guide you through the process from Day One onward.
