Menchie’s, the “friendliest place on earth” with a mission to make every guest smile, will celebrate the grand openings of its two newest Houston locations in River Oaks (1944A West Gray Street) and the Galleria area (5000 Westheimer Road) by giving away free frozen yogurt for a year. On Saturday, November 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 10 lucky winners from each of the two locations will walk away from the Grand Opening events with free, best-in-class frozen yogurt for the next year.

Menchie’s, a company known for its philanthropic efforts, is also encouraging customers and neighbors to give back to the community by donating gently used Halloween costumes and leftover candy to either of the new locations during the Grand Opening events on November 2. All collected items will then be donated to DePelchin Children’s Center in Houston and contributors will receive one dollar off of their purchase.

The new Menchie’s locations will be owned and operated by franchisees, Andy Brantner and Andrew Martin, and will bring the total number of locations in the Houston area to 16, with 11 owned by Brantner and Martin.
