The Siren Call of Froyo

One big reason why froyo shops have become so prevalent? The prospect of quick and easy dollar dollar bills: "A Red Mango franchisee invests, on average, between $200,000 to 400,000 for a single unit.

A unit can run with only one or two employees per shift." [Restaurants & Institutions]
