The World’s First Frozen Yogurt Franchise Celebrates Its Franchiees’ Second Store In Northwest Texas
Husband and wife duo Alkesh and Tina Jariwala opened their first TCBY location in Coppell three years ago and are excited to open their second store at Irving’s new entertainment hub. After working five years in the banking industry, Tina decided to search for a career that allowed her to spend more time with her two daughters. Alkesh has been a longtime fan of TCBY, taking frequent trips to the local brick and mortar as a child. With these memories in mind, the pair thought TCBY was the perfect business to open in their community and ventured into franchising. With one location under their belt, Alkesh and Tina look forward to help Irving locals make memories of their own over a cup of TCBY frozen yogurt.
“I grew up with TCBY, so I am continuously honored to be a part of the brand and elated to open my second location in the area,” said franchisee, Alkesh Jariwala. “TCBY has allowed my wife and I to lead by example for our daughters, and we look forward to having them inherit the business one day and become franchisee owners themselves.”
“The expansion in Irving has provided a great opportunity to continue our legacy of serving delicious, healthy frozen desserts,” said Dustin Lyman, CEO of TCBY. “It has been a pleasure working with Alkesh and Tina and we look forward to seeing their success at the Toyota Music Factory complex.”
