The Raikhs preferred Tutti Frutti for its richness of flavors (as of now there are 90) and its unordinary formulas (for instance, there are fixings, for example, kidney beans and mint chocolate).
The expert establishment was somewhat costly. Raikh does not uncover precisely the extent to which it cost, saying just that the charge was some place in the middle of $100,000 and $1 million. The organization works in the mid-value fragment: The normal client request comes to $8-10.

Local accomplices pay the Raikhs an establishment expense of $25,000 and 4 percent eminences on their incomes, and as an exchange they are furnished with the Tutti Frutti engineering and formulas. The yogurt, readied with uncommon machines that the Raikhs import from the U.s., is made with a specific powdered yogurt age, likewise supplied by the brand’s holder, which is blended with milk and is then whipped with a blender. The franchisees must give the tree grown foods, berries, desserts and different fixings themselves.

The Raikhs have a quality control group that works with their accomplice bistros. They likewise buy promoting space on radio projects and in daily papers.
In the two years it has been operational, Tutti Frutti’s general franchisees have pulled in about $2.5 million in private speculations, which incorporate family companions and bank credit. The business began returning benefit just in June in the not so distant future. Presently the Raikhs procure about $1-1.2 million a month, however reinvest the benefits in new bistros.
“This is a fairly intricate business, yet income from a yogurt bistro can be like those of a decent restaurant: $3,900 – $7,200 a day,” says Raikh.
Yogumi from Krasnodar
The Raikhs’ fundamental rival is Alexander Zimin, the maker of the Yogumi chain of corners offering lemonades and milkshakes (the head office in Krasnodar deals with 25 bistros in the nation). He figured out how to make solidified yogurt independent from anyone else.
In 2010 Zimin recognized the becoming fame of yogurt abroad and chose to add another item to his determination. Semi-completed products from American and Korean makers did not suit him, so his organization created its own particular low-calorie yogurt-based solidified item, utilizing suppliers as a part of Italy. Yogumi’s designers exceptionally adjusted its machines for the new formulas – the chain now even offers progressed coolers under its own particular brand.
Yogumi’s first yogurt bar was opened in one of Krasnodar shopping centers in 2011. At that point the business person chose to focus on counseling. For $2,500 Zimin would offer his formulas, clarify how to utilize the important supplies and help find the suppliers. Zimin’s group helped make 10 separate bars with his counseling association technique.
At that point Yogumi entered the national business sector with a franchising arrange: the establishment charge for the permit is 100-150,000 rubles ($2,400 – $3,600) and the general interest in the bistro is 700,000 – 1.5 million rubles ($17,000 – $36,000). Zimin guarantees result in three to six months and month to month incomes of 120-250,000 rubles ($2,900 – $6,000). A client’s normal request (counting espresso, milkshake and lemonade) is between 150 to 220 rubles ($3.6 – $5).
“Yogurt bars are a vacant business corner in most Russian urban communities,” says Zimin.
