Eco Yogurt Lounge (Boca Raton & Fort Lauderdale)

First it was hula hoops, then came bell bottoms, and now, the latest fad is self-serve yogurt. It seems like everywhere you look, a new fro-yo shop is opening up. As an avid fan of this healthier option to ice cream, I am ecstatic about the newest craze. I frequent these places and have found one that I can call my favorite- Eco Yogurt Lounge, or as we like to refer to it, "Club Eco." At first glance, you really wouldn't have a clue that this place is featuring frozen yogurt. It's got a chic décor to it, from oversized white furniture to a bright lit, wavy wall that changes color every few seconds. There is sure to be an upbeat song playing, adding to the excitement of the fact that you are about to indulge in a great tasting treat. As you make your way into Eco, you'll notice that there are a number of delicious flavors offered from fruity (raspberry tart) to decadent (red velvet), all of which are low in fat. And when you're done filling your cup with your own concoction of desired yogurts, you can add on one or all of the 20+ toppings that Eco has (the Captain Crunch cereal is my latest obsession).

With all these other fro-yo joints around, what is it that sets Eco apart from the others? A couple of things actually. First, their selection of yogurts don't just taste great, they also do a body good- containing active cultures that aid in digestion, control cholesterol levels and strengthen the immune system. Some of the flavors even offer supplements such as Echinacea and Protein Boost! But, the benefits of Eco don't stop there. The company is environmentally conscious, using recycled materials for their cups, lids, spoons, and napkins. Eco also donates a portion of their proceeds to local, ecologically friendly organizations and supports local schools as well.

Eco offers a trio of greatness- a cool, loungy atmosphere, awesome yogurts, and an Earth-friendly business approach. If you can't make your way to Boca Raton to give it a try, there is a second location opening up very soon in Fort Lauderdale, on Las Olas-very close to the beach! And if both of those locations are still out of your reach, why not open your own? Eco has franchising opportunities available. While I don't know exactly how profitable the self-serve fro-yo business is, I imagine with the "pay by weight" concept, you could do pretty well- and just think of all the delicious yogurt you would have in your life!
