Golden Spoon Franchising, the franchising arm of the largest frozen yogurt brand in Southern California, announced the signing of an agreement with the M.H. Al Mana Group of Companies to develop the Golden Spoon franchise throughout Qatar. The agreement is for the opening of eight or more stores over the next five years. Three stores are currently open in the Doha market area with five more to follow. The fourth location is expected to be open by April 30th with two more slated for the end of June 2012. The final two will open by the end of August 2012 for a total of eight stores.
“Signing the agreement to enter the Qatar market demonstrates our commitment to make Golden Spoon a leading global brand,” said Golden Spoon Franchising CEO Roger Clawson. “Our successful launch into Japan and the Philippines helped validate Golden Spoon’s international expansion into the Middle East Region and built our brand’s exposure worldwide. We look forward to replicating that success in Qatar with the M.H. AL Mana Group and throughout the GCC with other professional, multi-unit franchise developer groups.”
