Menchie's at Felicita Plaza in Escondido, California Uses Retractable Belt Stanchions With Industry First 3" Custom Printed Extra Wide Belts To Establish Event Perimeters

On January 3rd, 2014 Edward and Dr. Kathy Abels opened their new Menchie's frozen yogurt franchise at Felicita Plaza in Escondido, California with a terrific response from the local community.  

Menchie's self-serve frozen yogurt stores focus as much on creating a fun, family-friendly environment as they do on providing delicious desserts and toppings. Each franchise emphasizes staying active in the local community, providing fundraising opportunities and donations to schools and local organizations.

The Abels' new franchise store features rotating 14 flavors of frozen yogurt and 50 topping, including fresh fruit, allowing visitors the ability to create personalized concoctions that will satisfy the pickiest of palates, with gluten-free, no sugar added and low carbohydrate options are available every day.  

In preparation for the store's opening, the couple contacted Pro Stanchions to address their crowd control and stanchion needs.  They were interested in implementing custom printed retractable belt stanchions and it was brought to their attention that the branding message could be strengthened.

Pro Stanchions made the Abels aware that QueueSolutions had recently introduced the crowd control industry first Xtra Series retractable belt stanchions.  The Xtra Series belts are 3" wide and when compared the industry standard 2" belts, provide 50% more space for brand, logo and message printing. 

Aside from establishing both indoor and outside patio perimeters for birthday parties, school visits, and fundraising events, the stanchions drive home the Menchie's brand and enhance the store's aesthetics.  When asked how the Xtra Series stanchions were received, Dr. Abels stated "They look GREAT!  We love our stanchions...they were much needed."  

Here is a quick comparison that demonstrates how Menchie's Escondido Felicita Plaza has increased brand awareness through its stanchions.  Is it obvious in the first picture where these young ladies are enjoying their frozen yogurt concoctions?  How about the second?
