The Yogurt Shop expands interstate

The Yoghurt Shop-Burton-City of SalisburyThe Yoghurt Shop is expanding to Melbourne after a decade of growth. Known for their high quality Yogurt which is made at at Burton their long standing success across Adelaide has helped them to grow to 10 branded, retail locations across Adelaide, most of which are run on a franchise model, and it supplies about 200 independent grocers since 2004.

Owner Simon Reynolds said the vision was always to supply a niche, high quality product.

“I was in food and hospitality and we stumbled across what we thought was the best yoghurt in Australia at the time and it wasn’t available in South Australia,’’ he said.

Flavours include apricot crumble, honeycomb, and cappuccino, while the company also offers gourmet dips, smoothies and frozen yoghurt. There is also the base classic yoghurt, and a natural yoghurt which has no added sugar.

The Yoghurt Shop directly employs about 50 people across its retail sites, management and a manufacturing site at Burton, with about 150 across the franchise network.

Mr Reynolds said the company was aiming to open its first Melbourne store in a site similar to the Central Market, which reflected its niche, high quality focus.

The company is also the official yoghurt supplier for the Port Adelaide Football Club.
