Frozen Yogurt Robots Invade the International Franchise Expo in NYC

PROSE Designed With Needs of Franchisees, Rapid Growth In Mind

PROSE, the healthy and enriching hand and foot care brand, is partnering with Zenoti to power its innovative, mobile-first guest experience. Combining the demand for froyo and ice cream with high technology and robotics, Reis and Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots are proving to be a huge hit! The brand recently attended the International Franchise Expo held in New York, where attendees had the opportunity to see the all-new frozen yogurt robot in action and sample some frozen treats. Launched in 2016, Reis & Irvy’s have sold 250 franchises to date and pre-sold over 1,100 robots hitting the market in June.A turnkey opportunity- Reis and Irvy’s provides locations for the robots in high-traffic areas such as amusement parks, movie theatres & hospitals, malls and tourist attractions. Because the robots are self-contained, no bricks, no employees, no significant rents and practically labor free, the Reis and Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots are well poised to disrupt brick and mortar frozen yogurt concepts. With its small footprint and big theatrics, the Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robot captures and captivates consumers with its on-site convenience and playful, robotic delivery of delicious frozen confections. Reis & Irvy’s units are capable of delivering frozen yogurt, ice cream, gelato, acai, frozen ice and custard with toppings within 60 seconds or less. Franchisees can own their own Froyo Robot delivering frozen creations to customers everywhere to build their own froyo enterprise. The streamlined economy of the Reis & Irvy’s franchise model is equally matched by the compact selfsufficiency of the machine itself, making it a practical business choice for any enterprising operator For more information, visit www.reisandirvys.com.

Franchising USA

Founded in late 2017 by former Massage Envy President and CEO David Crisalli, PROSE now operates two boutiques in Arizona. A wellness industry leader, Crisalli plans to replicate his past success by thoughtfully growing the business through franchising. PROSE was designed with franchisees at the center of the leadership model, so the company’s technology platform required rapid scaling and franchise growth support while simultaneously creating a mobile-first, elevated guest experience. “We set out to reinvent the hand and foot experience, and a big part of that focused on technology to simplify the process. Zenoti was the clear choice as the technology partner PROSE needed to bring the brand to life,” said Crisalli. When guests arrive at PROSE, their experience is mobile from check-in to checkout. PROSE curators move freely through the boutique using iPads to check guests in, create guest invoices and process their payments during checkout. Guests have ondemand access to the brand with a mobile app and online booking capabilities. PROSE also offers a membership program to its guests. Zenoti creates personalized experiences for members that touch every aspect of their visit, including check-ins, checkouts, payments and more. “We’re thrilled to partner with PROSE to provide the technology foundation they need to make their mobile-first, elevated customer experience a reality,” said Sudheer Koneru, CEO at Zenoti.
