Red Mango Arrives in Miracle Mile December 29, 2007

It’s true. Red Mango continues to expand across the Los Angeles area. They’re already in Westwood (land of really bad parking) and Northridge (incredibly far away). Now they’ve finally made it to a location I’ll actually go to. I noticed the new shop the other day as I was driving by on Wilshire. I haven’t been there yet (I’ll go soon), but I’m delighted to have them so close. They’re open 11am-10pm daily.

It’s beyond me why they didn’t choose to open in K-town first (a K-town shop opens in 2008), but maybe they figured they’d try to make inroads with the Pinkberry crowd before invading an area already full of Korean-style fro-yo shops.

Red Mango USA has a website here. Be warned, it’s incredibly Flash-intensive. Seriously, guys (by “guys” I mean the programmers who designed the site and – perhaps more importantly – the execs who paid for it), it may be pretty but it’s not user-friendly.

    Hey Raven,

    I hope your year is full of red mangoes and pink berries and of course, an acceptance slip from a major NYC publisher offering you a six-figure advance for a three-book deal!!

    red mango’s yogurt is definitely the best of the fro-yo chains… at least the plain flavor is. it’s just… better. but i still don’t get the whole 2-flavors, $1=per-topping standard. gimme my self-serve full of flavors yogurtland any day!

    I can’t wait until the extremely mediocre and watery Pinkberry is dethroned. I like Ce Fiore though so I hope that Red Mango spares them.

    Raine, even with the limited flavors, I love the tartness of K-style fro-yo.

    Bon V., according to their terrible flash site Red Mango doesn’t have a downtown store scheduled to open in 2008. My guess would be Pinkberry is more of a competitor than Ce Fiore.

    The website has nutrition facts which indicate the yogurt isn’t really all that bad for you. In fact it might be good for you. Er… am I just trying to convince myself?
