Fans of Llao llao in Singapore are devastated that the popular Spanish frozen yogurt chain has to leave. The Singapore franchisor D+1 Holding has terminated its contract with the Spanish froyo chain which has been in the country for four years.
The reason for the termination remains unknown and all 29 llaollao outlets have effectively ceased operation on December 7.
However, frozen yogurt fans are in luck as another European froyo brand called Yole is taking its place! D+1 Holding claimed they have obtained the rights to Yole, which is pronounced as yo-lay.
By today, December 9, all 29 llaollao outlets will be converted to Yole in Singapore. Since December 5, the European froyo brand’s Singapore Facebook page has been updating the feed with photos of their delicious products!
According to a spokesperson for the company, Yole is a “better product” that will be a fit for Singapore.
The spokesperson told Channel News Asia,
“Objectively, we believe Yole is a better product and has a wider menu. We also firmly believe that Yole will suit the Singapore market with exciting flavor innovations and well-known toppings from Spain and Italy.”
Aside from that, Yole is proud to introduce new frozen yogurt flavors made with ingredients sourced from Italy and Spain on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. On top of that, they will also be serving natural frozen yogurt as well as coconut soft-serve ice cream.
The price will be ranging from SGD2.50 (RM7.50) to SGD6.95 (RM20.85) for tubs and smoothies.
As for the Malaysian counterpart, fans have nothing to worry about as Bryan Loo, CEO of Loob Holding said: “it’s status quo for us.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely getting llaollao later!
