Yoga-urt, the Organic and Vegan Soft Serve Company, Announces Franchise Opportunities


After eight successful years of serving better-for-you options throughout Los Angeles, the dairy-free dessert chainlet is the first 100% vegan and gluten-free soft serve store in the franchise.

LA-based dessert company Yoga-urt is thrilled to announce that it is now offering franchise opportunities, and is the first 100% vegan and gluten-free soft serve store to do so. Yoga-urt differentiates itself by using all organic and natural plant-based ingredients with no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives, and debunking the assumption that better-for-you desserts can’t be as mind-blowingly delicious as they are healthy.

As trend reports continue to point to the explosive popularity of vegan options within both the dessert and larger food markets, Yoga-urt is poised to supply an increasing demand from customers searching for dairy-free alternatives. The menu features over 30 nut milk-based options, including Chocolate Bliss, Salted Caramel Zen, and Peanut Butter Prana, a toppings bar with mostly organic and all vegan options, organic smoothies, kombucha floats, banana splits, shakes, soft serve pies, pints to go, and more.

“Customers love our soft serve and with such high demand and growth, we’re proud to initialize the next step in the brand’s evolution through franchising,” says Yoga-urt Founder Melissa Schulman. “We hope to inspire a new crop of business owners who want to cement their legacy in the organic food and wellness industry.”

Yoga-urt was first conceived of by Schulman during her “Yoga Bubble Year,” a year-long sabbatical when she immersed herself in yoga practice. A health-conscious lover of a soft serve, she was inspired to create a new kind of yogurt bar where customers could simultaneously nourish themselves and relax in a peaceful setting. In 2014, she put a team together to begin R&D, and they meticulously selected all of the ingredients now used in their flavors, including a housemade, hand-squeezed almond milk that is the basis for most of their products.

Schulman opened her first location in Los Angeles in 2015; eight years later, flavors are still made fresh from scratch daily with all organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, and soy-free ingredients, as well as added probiotics for digestive and immune health. She has successfully opened two more locations, now serving multiple neighborhoods throughout the city.

Yoga-urt’s three corporate stores are also all certified California Green Businesses that provide compostable or recyclable paper goods, which includes everything from spoons to pint containers. Though not required to be officially certified, Yoga-urt franchisees will adopt the brand’s eco-friendly paper goods and practices.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
