Menchie’s will offer free frozen yogurt on Monday, Feb. 1 from 4-7 p.m. in honor of National Frozen Yogurt Day.
The day is typically observed on Feb. 6, but Menchie’s will celebrate early at the Boone location, 1760 Blowing Rock Road, which opened in July of 2013.
Mondays are normally $3 yogurt days where you get to fill up a 10-ounce cup for only $3; but this Monday, the first six ounces will be free. After that, if you want more, the regular .49 cents per one additional ounce will apply.
The promotion includes any and all yogurt in the store. There’s tons of flavors, toppings and syrups. You want it, you got it!
Mondays aren’t the only days for a special. There’s always something going on at Menchie’s!
College students always get 10 percent off, except on Tuesdays when they get even more at 30 percent off. If you’re a student, show your ID!
On Wednesdays, kids under 13 eat for half price all day. Kids love the surplus of toppings, and parents love knowing they’re all eating something healthy. The place is also a hit among health and fitness enthusiasts, like cyclists.
Owner Lisa LaMalfa said Menchie’s has the tastiest and creamiest yogurt out there, and it’s better for you, too!
Menchie’s caters to the whole community here, offering discounts for police officers, firemen, groups that get weight watchers discounts and the like. If it’s your birthday, you’ll get a free cup. You can get more than the value of a free cup by participating in their smileage rewards program: for every $1 you spend, you’ll get a smile, which is a Menchie’s currency, and when you get 50 smiles, you get $5. Menchie’s wants to see everyone smile.
LaMalfa said the store loves the Boone community, and she’s always pleased to see folks hanging out there.
“We want the community and Boone to come enjoy. Some already do, coming two to three times a week. With the free Wi-Fi, who wouldn’t?” said LaMalfa. “Even if you’re a dog owner, you can bring your dogs and sit at the patio where there is a dog bowl. If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, don’t feel excluded — there are plenty of options for you that are included in the free six-ounce cup deal on Monday.”
The store is also heavily involved in the community and has participated in local programs and events like Girls on the Run, the Color Run to support the Hospitality House, hosting field trips for schools, serving dinner at First Baptist Church and more. It even offers a party room that can be used for book reading and meetings, like Elevation App State Extension’s E-groups.
“As soon as you walk in our door, it’s a total experience coming to our store,” LaMalfa said. The experience is unlike any other because the team members are super friendly and will show everyone how everything works.”
LaMalfa and her family, including her two daughters, spend a lot of time there and help out as much as they can.
“I do everything I can do,” LaMalfa said.
It’s a fun, clean and colorful atmosphere you’re sure to enjoy. Don’t wait — go enjoy a cool cup of fro-yo today!
There are more 500 Menchie’s locations worldwide, including in China, but we hope you’ll upport your local store.
