Crystal and Scott Carroll visited frozen yogurt shops around the country before deciding to start MyFroYo six years ago, making it one of the first in Eastern Washington.
Now they have four shops in the Tri-Cities and dedicated fans.
“For us it’s about creating a place where people want to be to share their special memories,” said Scott Carroll. “We provide a quality product in a clean store, with a fun atmosphere. It’s all about the customer.”
The Kennewick shop has a party room that can be used for free, even if you’re not buying yogurt.
“We have five kids,” said Crystal Carroll. “We wanted to create a community space that families can use.”
When the party room isn’t in use for a meeting or party, the Carrolls provide crayons and coloring books for parents and kids who stop in during the day and want to hang out.
MyFroYo also is popular because of its variety of flavors. And there’s always a no-sugar and a nondairy choice.
“We always serve fresh, seasonal fruit and top-quality yogurt base with probiotics,” Scott Carroll said.
Without taking the focus off yogurt, the next big thing for the Carrolls will be their Krispy Kreme franchise opening May 19 in the Queensgate area.
Scott Carroll said Krispy Kreme received about 10,000 applications for franchises last year. They granted three.
“They were impressed with the way we do business,” he said. “It’s a great complement to our community.”
