While the frozen-yogurt boom may be on the same market-saturation path as cupcakes, this international chain’s positioning as a nutritious alternative to traditional frozen sweets has helped it continue to grow. To set itself apart, it promotes probiotic-packed treats. And it also touts “profitable and responsible growth” as one of the business’s key values. With real estate a growing problem in the industry, its small footprint and limited seating make mall spots and other nontraditional locations realistic ventures.
