Red Mango FroYo to be Served at Mizzou Athletics Training Complex
Earlier this year, Red Mango celebrated the grand opening of its 100th U.S. location in Columbia, Mo. Along with the brand’s continual expansion, they’ve found some rather interesting partnerships that were once only acknowledged by top-tier drink brands — serving in student-athlete dining halls. The latest installation? The Sells Family Dining Hall at the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex at the University of Missouri.
This marks the second agreement of this kind for Red Mango and an NCAA Division 1-A athletic program, providing signature smoothies to student athletes, capitalizing on the idea that athletes and frozen yogurt/smoothies are a natural fit.
The University of Missouri Athletic Department has 20 sports and competes in the Big 12 conference. Dan Kim, the company’s founder and chief concept officer explains, “Because of their intense, competitive lifestyle, they [student-athletes] can enjoy the health benefits our yogurt provides in a refreshing format.”
College students, do you want Red Mango in your dining halls? Or can you live with your current frozen yogurt options on or around your campus?
