Purchase of 520 Patented Automated Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robots Marks Second Largest Territory Contract for Flagship Frozen Yogurt Franchise Concept
SAN DIEGO, CA - (NewMediaWire) - May 02, 2018 - Reis & Irvy’s, Inc. (www.reisandirvys.com), a subsidiary franchise concept of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (www.gennextbrands.com) (OTCB: VEND), announced the signing of an exclusive territory franchise agreement today with South Carolina-based, CH Capital, for its patented Reis & Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Robots. Under the agreement, the franchisee is required to purchase 520 revolutionary frozen yogurt robots throughout the Miami-Dade Metro area over the course of the next five years in order to maintain exclusivity in the territory, which would result in over $22.3 million in revenue to Generation NEXT.
CH Capital is a Greenville, SC-based family business focused on private equity and venture capital. The principals of CH Capital each have over 20 years in building and operating businesses, both domestically and internationally, and have experience in virtually every role – from startup operator, investor to board member. CH Capital has experience in investing and operating in institutional private equity and hedge funds, immigration consulting, aviation, commercial and residential real estate, technology companies and dental franchises. With extensive relationships in the Miami area, CH Capital is excited about the opportunity to be the ideal partner to build and represent the Reis & Irvy’s franchise concept and brand with exclusivity in the Miami market.
Launched in 2016, Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt robot has pre-sold over 1,000 units worth an estimated $40 million in deferred revenues and is scheduled for mass rollout by manufacturing partner, Flex Ltd., beginning next month and continuing throughout 2018. The agreement with CH Capital comes on the heels of Generation NEXT announcing a similar record-setting agreement last month, one which saw the Frozen Yogurt Robots locking in two of California’s largest markets, Orange County and Los Angeles.
Exclusively partnered with Dannon YoCream, 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. Designed to disrupt brick and mortar frozen yogurt concepts, Reis & Irvy’s is a self-contained, labor-free retail store placed in high traffic locations such as amusement parks, movie studios, museums, theatres and tourist attractions.
“We were initially attracted to the Reis & Irvy’s model for what we recognize as a strategic advantage in the marketplace,” said Lucas Harper, Principal for CH Capital. “We clearly see the Reis & Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Robot and its technology as a disruptive solution to a popular marketplace. As we’ve had the opportunity to get to know the Generation NEXT team, and meet the high-quality manufacturing, product and servicing relationships they bring to the table, we feel they are well positioned to be very successful. We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to bringing this opportunity to the Miami area.”
“We continue sourcing partners that clearly see the opportunity to disrupt and who will give us the best chance of success in these exclusive franchised territories around the country,” said Nick Yates, Chairman of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands. “The team at CH Capital has an assortment of skills as well as contacts in Miami that will see our Reis & Irvy’s robot’s roll out aggressively into a variety of top tier location categories. In addition, they will be operated professionally by a team of entrepreneurs with a track record of success across many different channels.”
In addition to its continued expansion into key national markets, Reis & Irvy’s has also strengthened its foundation and offerings by teaming up with some of the world’s largest manufacturing and logistics partners, including Dannon YoCream (www.yocream.com), Flex, Ltd. (www.flex.com), Stoelting Food Service (www.stoelting.com), who created the very first soft-serve machine for Dairy Queen, and Pitney Bowes (www.pitneybowes.com), who will provide the installation and national servicing.
