ORLANDO, Fla. -- Foodservice equipment manufacturer Argosy Group International (AGI) has finalized an agreement to acquire Donper America.

The Donper America line serves foodservice operators in the frozen yogurt business who want equipment. Donper America understands the importance of branding for foodservice operators offering self-service options, and it provides customized, graphic treatments for their equipment.

"We entered the soft-serve market because the resurgence of frozen yogurt has energized the category. We believe there is a need for customer-focused innovation," said Dan Doromal, vice president of marketing at Orlando, Fla.-based Donper America.

The executive team at AGI includes industry professionals with experience in engineering, product development, sales and marketing.

AGI will continue to service current Donper America customers and will continue to sell the Donper America brand.

Argosy Group International, also based in Orlando, Fla., currently provides a portfolio of foodservice equipment products for operators in the frozen dessert business. A range of options make Argosy equipment appropriate for use in a wide range of segments from those requiring high volume self-service efficiency to venues that demand small-footprint models. Its brands include Argosy, Donper America and Frozen Yogurt Solutions.
