DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAB Systems, Inc., the franchising subsidiary of BAB, Inc. (OTCBB: BABB), today announced that effective with the recent filing of its 2014 Franchise Disclosure Document, franchisees now have the option to include its SweetDuet® frozen yogurt program to their new Big Apple Bagels® or My Favorite Muffin® franchise. There is no additional initial franchise fee for this program.
The SweetDuet® program allows the franchisee to choose from a product line of approximately 75 varieties of premium quality frozen yogurt from which the store will offer up to 15 varieties daily. The concept is self-serve and includes abundant topping selections from which customers can create their own Duet Yourself® “sundae.” The new Dual-concept option maximizes the franchisee’s Big Apple Bagels/My Favorite Muffin space by adding a late afternoon and evening revenue opportunity while also differentiating itself from its frozen yogurt competition by virtue of its Big Apple Bagels/My Favorite Muffin breakfast, lunch and muffin gift basket business. Currently there are two Big Apple Bagels franchises which contain the SweetDuet® program, located in Kalamazoo and Portage, Michigan.
Also added for 2014 is a franchise fee discount in support of qualifying U.S. military service veterans. They will receive a $10,000 discount off the standard Franchise Fee of $25,000 for their first BAB Systems, Inc. franchise. To qualify, the applicant must be a veteran who has received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Military and provide a copy of form DD 214 showing their veteran status.
BAB, Inc. franchises and licenses Big Apple Bagels®, My Favorite Muffin®, SweetDuet Frozen Yogurt & Gourmet Muffins® and Brewster’s® Coffee. The Company’s stock is traded on the OTCBB under the symbol BABB and its web site can be visited at www.babcorp.com.
