RED MANGO
www.redmangousa.com
(317) 259-5000
914 Broad Ripple Ave.
Indianapolis, IN 46220 (Click here to see a map)

Location: B-
Located on a busy street with minimal parking makes it not as customer friendly.

Atmosphere: D+
Attempting to go for a modern atmosphere left the store feeling cold and unwelcoming. With few seats, no tables or outdoor seating left the customers feeling uncomfortable as it was hard to enjoy a sweet treat.

Yogurt: A
Meeting the exact elements of a perfect yogurt, the texture and taste were spot on. The yogurt meets nutritional needs by being pro biotic and meets the National Yogurt Association’s criteria for live and active culture yogurt.

Menu Items: B
Four of the same flavors are always available at Red Mango and don’t bring variety. These favors include green tea,  pomegranate, tangomonium, original. These flavors don’t make for popular kid’s choices. Their 22 toppings are very health-oriented, including fruits and cereal. In addition, they have a new line of pro biotic iced teas that are healthy and thirst quenching.

Price: C
Average price per person $4.50 to $5 with up to three toppings at 50 cents each.

Customer Service: C
While the service was proficient it did not seem extremely important to satisfy the customer’s every need.

Overall: B-
If you’re looking for a heathy spin on a sweet treat, this is the place for you.

ZOE’S YOGURT VILLAGEwebzoe
(317) 444-6755
916 E. Westfield Blvd.
Indianapolis, IN 46220 (Click here to see a map)

Location: A
Parking in the rear and a less busy street makes for easy access.

Atmosphere: B+
Using bright colors and fun decor brings an inviting and family friendly feel as the customer enters the store. There isn’t a lot of seating inside, but outside tables are available.

Yogurt: B
While still meeting nutritional standards of a yogurt, they are not as successful in creating a product with the same yogurt taste and texture. The yogurt itself tastes more like soft-serve ice cream.

Menu Items: A
With 12 flavors and alternating flavors every Friday, the customer will look for different flavors with every visit. There are over 25 toppings ranging from fresh fruit to candy bars. Also sell fresh smoothies, snow-cones and fresh waffle cones made daily. Zoe’s Yogurt Village also promotes its sister business, Gourmet Frank’s.

Price: B-
Average price per person $4. Pricing by weight, 49 cents per ounce. This can be inconvenient at times due to its inconsistency and fluctuating price.

Customer Service: A
Friendly and welcoming, employees seem to enjoy their job and providing the customer with satisfaction.

Overall: A-
If you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth and your sugar craving this is the perfect place for you.
