Patrick Galleher, sweetFrog Enterprises CEO, says sweetFrog FroYo Madness is the ideal way for sweetFrog to engage with its fans during March Madness.

"sweetFrog FroYo Madness adds to the excitement -- giving our loyal fans an opportunity to make their favorite flavor the ultimate champion. What better way to engage with our customers -- especially when warmer temperatures make enjoying your favorite sweetFrog creation while watching the NCAA Tournament a must."
Similar to the NCAA Tournament, sweetFrog FroYo Madness is comprised of 64 sweetFrog flavor "teams" split up into four sixteen-team regions (Scoop, Cookie, Sweet, Frog). Starting on Wednesday, March 15th, sweetFrog FroYo Madness will follow a similar schedule to the NCAA Tournament. sweetFrog fans can help their favorite flavors advance to the next round by visiting sweetfrog.com/FroYoMadness and voting during the following timeframes:

sweetFrog's Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Smith, says sweetFrog FroYo Madness is one of many ways sweetFrog is celebrating their customers this March.
"While sweetFrog FroYo Madness is sure to be a big hit with our fans, we also encourage them to stop by our stores as the NCAA tournament kicks off this weekend," said Smith.
