Budget cuts have been challenging for schools across our nation, and we want to help schools fund things that are important to their students' learning.
Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
More of Wisconsin’s favorite self-serve frozen yogurt -- and more funding for schools -- is coming to Green Bay, this time on the East side of town, as Smart Cow Yogurt Bar opens its second Green Bay location. The new store will open on Wed., Feb. 27 at noon.
In keeping with the owners' mission of regularly supporting schools, this location will twice a month donate part of an entire day's sales to a neighborhood school as a part of the company’s Grassroots Tuesdays program. During their Grand Opening event from March 11th through the 15th, Smart Cow Yogurt Bar will donate part of the entire day's sales for five days in a row to five neighborhood schools.
"We want to do something good with this business, and our thing is education," says Robyn Kuhlmann, who with her husband, Hans, and partner, Steve, created the unique "froyo for education" concept, opening their first store in Colorado in May 2011. "Budget cuts have been challenging for schools across our nation, and we want to help schools fund things that are important to their students' learning."
The benefits of Smart Cow Yogurt Bar’s Grassroots Tuesdays program have ranged from helping student councils fund school dances to helping schools create new playgrounds.
“Smart Cow Yogurt Bar is leading the way in school partnerships. With their support not only did we earn enough money to purchase much needed basketball equipment, we were able to continue to provide every student with a new book on their birthday,” Helen Keller Elementary Principal Kim M. Spychalla said.
To date, the company has donated over $40,000 to schools in its communities. The new East side location will be its fourth store. Both Green Bay stores are operated by Kuhlmann's sister and Green Bay native, Rene Hoffmann.
Smart Cow Yogurt Bar offers 16 rotating flavors of frozen yogurt and sorbet, along with dozens of toppings, from fresh fruit to nuts and candies. Customers fill their own cup, add toppings, then weigh and pay by the ounce.
