Generation NEXT Franchise Brands Announces Reis & Irvy's Franchising Approval in California

Robotic frozen yogurt concept expands U.S. footprint by opening West Coast territories for franchising opportunities

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2017) -  Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: VEND) has announced that its flagship franchise concept Reis & Irvy's has now been approved for franchising within California. The California approval marks the continued expansion of an aggressive effort to introduce and launch the revolutionary Froyo Robots throughout the United States and open franchise opportunities for qualified entrepreneurs within key markets across the country.

Launched in April of 2016, Reis & Irvy's, the world's first robotic frozen yogurt vending machine set out to establish a firm foothold across the United States securing franchising approvals in key registration states such as New York, Washington, Illinois, Virginia, and Minnesota. As a major market within the U.S., the San Diego-based franchisor has been working diligently to open the California market for approval for some time and will now be working with qualified franchisees to place the "Froyo Robots" throughout the state. To date, Reis & Irvy's showcases a U.S. franchise network of just under 200, representing over 850 robots across the country. Additionally, the concept has also recently been expanded in to Canada, Israel and Oman via licensing agreements, introducing the patented technology to an international audience.

"We have over 4,500 names within our database of individuals who have been eagerly anticipating California to approve us as a franchisor. I am happy to say that we can now finally begin to contact these prospective franchisees, invite them to our San Diego headquarters to see the robot in action, taste the many frozen treats now available and meet our incredibly passionate team," said TJ Rogers, Director of Franchising for Reis & Irvy's. "Given the population of over 39 million people in California and the fact that prospective franchisees can visit our offices in their own back yard, we believe we can substantially increase demand for our product. Suffice it to say that this is a very exciting time for us."

Prospective franchisees within the newly-approved California market should be pleased as well. The Reis & Irvy's corporate team is dedicated to providing a franchise model which promotes the highest level of opportunity for its brand ambassadors. Focused on turn-key solutions for new and existing franchisees, the company provides a wealth of resources, tools and standards which help pave the way for successful placement, operation, support and management within the marketplace. With each Reis & Irvy's franchise across the country comes a fully-supported corporate effort focused on location procurement, national marketing, training and support for the life of the franchise.
