CUPS Frozen Yogurt – That’s Hot™, the beach-themed self-serve fro-yo concept, will celebrate the grand opening of its Edison, New Jersey location on Monday, October 7 at Menlo Park Mall, 55 Parsonage Road in Edison, across from the AMC Theater. CUPS Edison opens to the public at 5 pm and will be offering free frozen yogurt from 5 – 8 pm.
During grand opening week, each Edison customer will be given a “scratch off” card, which contains prizes such as iPhone covers, blankets, pens, glow-in-the-dark wristbands and CUPS coupons. One lucky winner will receive free fro-yo for a year.
Since opening the first CUPS in Clifton, New Jersey in 2010, CUPS has taken the fro-yo industry by storm, becoming the local hot spot for teenagers and adults alike who make their own fro-yo concoctions choosing from 24 yogurt flavors and over 50 different toppings and three sauces.
The Exchange, a popular Yahoo Finance blog, recently named CUPS as one of “The Most Popular Fast-Food Outlets You Haven’t Heard Of (Yet).” With 17 locations in New York, New Jersey, California and Florida, CUPS has signed more than 12 area development agreements presenting approximately 30 franchise units.
According to CUPS co-founder Rick Barbrick, CUPS is much more than great frozen yogurt; CUPS was designed around the experience
“It’s more of a club like experience. We pump out club dance music at volumes that create a highly energetic vibe, a lounge-type design with couches, ottomans and eclectic murals; and Cast Members with infectiously fun personalities. It’s the complete experience that gives us that edgy vibe versus an everyday yogurt bar or ice cream shop experience,” said Barbrick.
Kenny Jaffal, a veteran in the restaurant/retail
business, is the Edison franchisee. Jaffal said CUPS was the best
franchise opportunity due to the “it” factor.
“We looked at a lot of other frozen yogurt companies and CUPS has clearly distanced itself from the rest of the crowd. With every detail, from the music, décor, atmosphere and product offering, it is obvious CUPS made the choice to be the best in the industry,” said Jaffal.
The Edison CUPS will be open from 11:00 am to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 11:00 am to 1:00 am on Friday and Saturday. For more information, call 848-260-2672 or visit www.cupsfrozenyogurt.com.
