Franchise Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt

Our Story

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!

Franchise Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt

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.

Testimonials

Happy Yogurt, for happy customers

Happy Cow Yogurt charges you by the pound. So there are usually 12 flavors plus the combo. (like peanut butter/chocolate) There are probably 40 different toppings. you can also have a cup (with up to 4 dividers if you don't want it to mix flavors), waffle cones, brownies or cookies. So the combinations are endless. They also have mini cups so you can sample before you fill your cup. Runs about $5-$6 a person depending on how full you make your cup.

Awesome FROYO!!!

We go here quite frequently - especially with our kids. Lots of flavors with some seasonal good ones. Employees are always very friendly and offer sample cups aplenty. Toppings aren't in short supply either, and prices are by weight so you only pay for what you want. Our kids love this place, and it is pretty healthy too! We'll keep going for sure!

The pinnacle of frozen yogurt!

Let me first say, I am not a big frozen yogurt fan. At least I wasn't. My husband and I visited Happy Cow last weekend when we were in Wesley Chapel, after reading the reviews. The flavors were amazing! They gave us about 5 sample cups each. Every single flavor I tried, I LOVED. The blood orange sorbet, the salted caramel gelato, the mixed berry yogurt (and more), were absolutely fabulous! I highly recommend a visit. We will definitely be back!

LOVE THIS PLACE!

We have yogurt here close to once a week since they opened. Usually these yogurt places go down hill after they first open but not Happy Cow! They keep the place clean which is very important to me AND you always get sample cups to try the yogurt.

Love me some frozen yogurt!

Very cute little shop with great decor.

This was our first visit, a family affair. My husband and I are new to this area and we wanted to treat our nieces and nephew to some frozen yogurt after an afternoon in the pool.

There was only 1 person working and she really didn't explain how things. She wasn't very friendly. She didn't offer sample cups or dividers or mention the app you can download on your phone for specials etc.

She continued to give us dirty looks as we sat there an ate ...our yogurt. I'm hoping she was having a bad day and doesn't normally treat customers this way.

I plan to give this shop another chance but if the customer service continues to be bad I won't be back.
