S incerely Yogurt was founded on passions for delicious and healthy frozen treats, giving back to the community, and for spreading awareness on healthy snacking. It is our promise that Sincerely Yogurt will never compromise the quality and strict standards we set in stone from our very first location. We invite you to explore the brand with us, and see why we are a step above the rest of the market.

Frozen Treat Industry
Frozen yogurt has always been a guilt-free option to ice cream with fewer calories and more nutrients per serving. Tart-flavored or Greek frozen yogurt, a menu offering in our frozen yogurt shops, is taking the frozen treat industry by storm. Its health appeal with low to no sugar content and naturally occurring probiotics has mass appeal with a health-conscious America looking for food with fewer preservatives and less sugar.
- The frozen yogurt and smoothie industry has grown widely across the US despite the 2009 recession.
- Industry revenue has risen at an annual rate of 5.8% and is forecasted to grow to $2.7 billion in 2021 - and is worth over $700 million!
- Demand driven by increasing health-conscious customers and parents have propelled the industry as a low cost healthy indulgence.
- Health concerns have driven the growth of self serve style stores, since they allow for portion control on an individual basis. Additionally, customers can customize their frozen treats and choose to add as many healthy toppings as they would like to.
We strive to support our franchisees in whatever we can to drive success. At Sincerely Yogurt we will always be close by. Marketing strategies are developed on a store to store basis. Each location is equipped with promotions and campaigns that maximize each store’s relationship with the community.
