COLD SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Self-serve franchise Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt has opened a Yumz Express kiosk inside of a Cold Springs, N.Y., Gulf gas station.

Gulf Oil LP selected Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt as a preferred vendor in July.

"We look forward to having owner Ali Kirmani a part of our Yumz family, and offering our one-of-a-kind 'fro-yo' to the greater New York area," said Matt Thelander, co-founder of Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt. "For business owners like him, Yumz Express is the ideal solution to offer customers a quality product while increasing revenue. We are very proud of our business model and love that we make it easy for existing stores to add a custom Yumz Frozen Yogurt kiosk station to their establishment."

This 24-hour location will feature three self-serve Yumz Express machines offering six flavors, toppings and sauces. Featured frozen yogurt flavors will rotate weekly, offering a total of 24 flavors in rotation with toppings.

"Frozen Yogurt will be a hit in our store," said Kirmani. "We have a lot of traffic already and are always looking for new items that our customers will love. I also feel that Yumz Express will expand our business and increase our profits."

Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt offers a rotating selection of more than 55 fat-free, low-calorie probiotics-infused flavors. The stores feature more than 75 toppings such as fruits, nuts, sauces and candy.

Yumz Express is a kiosk-sized version of a full-size Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt store designed to fit inside existing stores, such as movie theaters, restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, gas stations, pharmacies or other existing retail locations.
