About Menchie's

Menchie's shops offer self-serve frozen yogurt in 100 rotating flavors, including low carb, no sugar added, dairy free, nonfat, gluten free, and kosher options. Founders Danna and Adam Caldwell came up with the company's name from the nickname Adam gave when they were dating. They opened their first store in Los Angeles in 2007, and began franchising a year later.
