The company is the first national frozen yogurt store chain. Borrowing a formula from the fast food industry, it has utilized franchising as a tool for volatile expansion. Though some observers felt frozen yogurt to be simply a health food fad, TCBY’s endurance, the proliferation of imitators, and the appearance of frozen yogurt in founded ice cream chains like Baskin-Robbins have proven the wisdom of the company’s concept. TCBY is the biggest company of its kind, operating almost 2,800 locations in 29 countries.
