Reis & Irvy’s Announces Sponsorship With the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, Home of the Indiana State Fair, Echl’s Indy Fuel Hockey, and the Lupui Jaguars NCAA Basketball Teams


The Multi-Use Premiere Venue, Which Sees Approximately 1.5 Million Visitors Annually, Will Host the Revolutionary Reis & Irvy’s Robotic Frozen Yogurt Vending Machines in Two Facilities


SAN DIEGO, CA, May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When San Diego-based Generation NEXT Franchise Brands, Inc. (VEND) launched its flagship franchise concept, Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt vending robots in 2016, its focus was not only building a global franchise network, but ensuring (through an internal locations procurement team) that the technology would be placed within top-tier locations that would match the excitement and novelty of the brand. With over 450 locations secured to date, the company today announced yet another premiere partnership, securing an agreement with the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, home to the Indy Fuel hockey team, the IUPUI Jaguars NCAA Basketball team and the Indiana State Fair.  

The Indiana Farmers Coliseum and the nearby Fuel Tank at Fishers, will be host to two of the Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robot units starting in August of 2018 with further expansion initiatives possible in the future. Additionally, Reis & Irvy’s will sponsor and have exclusive naming rights to the Fuel Tank’s event party room, where one of the interactive robots will live full-time, providing guests with amazing desserts and an incredible addition to an already exciting venue. The robots, which serve seven different flavors of frozen yogurt, ice cream and sorbet, with 6 topping choices in under 60 seconds, bring another innovative concept to the state venue.

“The Indy Fuel are thrilled to team up with Reis & Irvy’s to bring a Froyo Robot to Indiana Farmers Coliseum and the Fuel Tank at Fishers,” said Indy Fuel President Larry McQueary. “Our priority is to constantly find new ways to enrich the game day experience for our guests, and the interactive nature of the Reis & Irvy’s system will allow us to provide a new concessions option to our fans in an engaging and memorable fashion.”

The Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt robots are not strangers to bringing the future of frozen yogurt to the ice or for that matter, coliseum-sized audiences. Earlier this year, the franchise brand also announced a similar sponsorship agreement with the National Hockey League’s Dallas Stars and within four Dr. Pepper StarCenter facilities.

Nick Yates, the Chairman of Generation NEXT Franchise Brands and its subsidiary, Reis & Irvy’s, spoke eloquently, but directly, about the importance of high-visibility venues for the concept.

“The Reis & Irvy’s brand exudes excitement, innovation and fun and that has always been the foundation from which we have built our concept,” said Yates. “More importantly, it is imperative to the success of our franchisees that we match and place their robots in premiere locations that mirror the brand essence we have created. What better place to have our robots serving guests, than the high-energy venue that hosts ECHL Hockey, NCAA Basketball and the Indiana State Fair. We, on behalf of our local franchisee, Ingrid Stadler, could not be more thrilled at the opportunity to partner with such an amazing facility.”

“We are excited to bring Reis and Irvy’s to Indianapolis and are especially proud to partner with the Indiana Farmers Coliseum,” said Stadler. “The visitors to the venue for the Indy Fuel hockey games, the Indiana State Fair and the dozens of other events throughout the year, are sure to enjoy the unique customer experience that the Reis & Irvy’s Froyo Robots will deliver!”

One unique feature of becoming a Reis & Irvy’s franchise operator is the extensive support that each individual receives from the corporate office. As with any successful franchise, the opportunity is all about the location. Reis & Irvy’s corporate office houses a dedicated location procurement department focused specifically on identifying and securing premiere locations for all Froyo Robots placed in the marketplace. The Indiana Farmers Coliseum, secured for the Stadler's through this very support initiative, is just another example of Generation NEXT and Reis & Irvy’s ensuring success for its franchise network and location partners alike.
