The Froyo Wars
See more guides

This year froyo wars have shown no sign of slowing down, and in effort to stay fresh forzen yogurt shops have adopted a variety of tactics and gimmicks to deliver better goods.
While Red Mango is rolling out new flavors, Pinkberry is now providing delivery and curbside pickup in Los Angeles, New York and San Fransisco, plus new offerings to nudge summer sales, Pinkberry is offering bing cherries as a new summer topping ... It also has a yogurt fruit parfait and many new seasonal flavors in the works. Pinkberry’s yogurt is certainly more sour than that of Red Mango, but beyond that the distinctions become arcane, and often bogged down in calorie-counting, the odd flavors of sugar substitutes, and obscure health claims. (Red Mango boasts that there are more than 400 million live cultures in each gram; Yogurberry says that its yogurt has the lowest glycemic index on the block.)

Newsflash: A battle in the war between Red Mango and Pinkberry has finally been won — by Pinkberry. Two years ago, Red Mango moved in at 182 Bleecker, only 56 feet from an already-open Pinkberry at 179 Bleecker. The Red Mango had a back garden going for it, but a tipster tells us the location has succumbed, and the phone number is disconnected.

Foryo Wars Players

Early on, Red Mango and Pinkberry were the biggest players in Southern California. But other new brands began flooding the market in 2007 thru 2010. Below are the bigger players with multiple store locations.

Pinkberry - 73 locations. The company's success has led to the launching of several competitors including kiwiberri, fiore and many others. This emergence of competition is fueled in part by companies such as Cielo USA, which manufactures and distributes the Frozen Yogurt Mix to businesses aspiring to be the next Pinkberry. Some attribute the company's success to its appealing combination of low-sugar, low-fat cool dessert in a designer environment with Philippe Starck furniture and Le Klint lighting. Originally marketed as frozen yogurt, Pinkberry has recently faced complaints that its product does not meet the California Department of Food and Agriculture's definition of frozen yogurt because it does not contain the necessary amount of bacterial cultures per ounce. Many celebrities such as Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Skip Bayless, and Lil' Wayne are known to rave about Pinkberry.

Red Mango - 68 locations. Red Mango's frozen yogurt is offered in limited flavors, such as Original and Green Tea. In November 2008, Red Mango launched its first new flavor, Pomegranate by POM Wonderful. Currently, the flavor lineup consists of Original, Pomegranate, Tangomonium, and the new, limited-edition Cocoa flavor. A line of three Probiotic Iced Teas was also released in summer 2009. In 2009, Red Mango closed four stores around Los Angeles due to "poor real estate decisions" but will open approximately 40 new locations elsewhere across the country. Yul Kwon, winner of a season of the Survivor reality series, recently opened a Red Mango in Silicon Valley in downtown Palo Alto, and in Westfield Valley Fair in San Jose.
