New Menchie's Store in Colonie Center
COLONIE -- Menchie'scelebrated the opening of its new Colonie Center location with week-long festivities beginning Saturday.
Store co-owner Brian Trager says he wanted to bring Menchie's to Colonie Center because he found Menchie's appealing in so many ways. Colonie Center is a family mall, and Menchie's is delicious, healthy, and entertaining for the entire family.
"Menchie's is delightful frozen yogurt served in a fun atmosphere! People walk in the door and they're happy and excited," said Trager. "I admire Menchie's commitment to friendly and smiley guest service. There is also something for everyone at Menchie's including low fat and nonfat, no sugar added, gluten-free, vegan, and lactose / dairy free options."
Menchie's is also committed to giving back to each community it serves. Stores partner with local schools in fundraising activities and education incentive programs. Each Menchie's store donates thousands of dollars in cash and products annually to local schools, sports groups, and charities to support worthwhile programs.
