It might seem odd that National Frozen Yogurt Day is celebrated in the middle of winter—we would have guessed it would be in spring or summer, not when much of the country is literally below freezing. But National Froyo Day is February 6, and the faux holiday is full of opportunities to get free frozen yogurt.

STAFFORD, VA—A fourth-grader at Park Ridge Elementary received quite the jolt Monday during an assembly in the school at 2000 Parkway Boulevard. And it had nothing to do with the free Sweet Frog ice cream she "won" for her participation in the school's "Spirit Night." That was nice but this far nicer.

While visiting his college student son in Boston last year, Manuel Corripio Alonso joined him for a class at Title Boxing Club and, as Corripio Alonso tells it, he was hooked. For anyone else that would probably mean signing up for a membership, but for Corripio Alonso, vice president of one of the largest private holding companies in the Dominican Republic, it was the catalyst for bringing the fitness franchise to his country.

Private Equity Power Boost: Why Private Equity-Owned Franchises Thrive

Private Equity Power Boost: Why Private Equity-Owned Franchises Thrive

Forbes

Consumers probably haven’t noticed -- and there’s no reason why they should, though the business world has -- but private equity-owned franchises are flourishing. For most of the 21st century, private equity firms have found franchises attractive investments, but lately, the relationship seems to be really heating up.

Hiring Right Doesn’t Always Mean Hiring for Experience: 5 Lessons from the CEO of sweetFrog

I had the great pleasure of interviewing J. Patrick Galleher, the chairman and CEO of sweetFrog, a chain of premium frozen yogurt parlors. The company was founded in 2009 by Derek Cha and his wife Annah Kim in Richmond, Virginia, and it was a wildly successful endeavor from the start. In four years, the company swelled to 215 stores in 25 states and has even gone international. But Cha knew that to grow even more, he would need help. In 2015, the investment group Boxwood Capital Partners became the majority owners of sweetFrog. Galleher is Boxwood’s managing director. The help definitely benefitted sweetFrog. Today, sweetFrog has 350 locations and is continuing to grow. If you don’t have one in your neighborhood, don’t worry. You will.
