Confederate is educated in business, can tell. I agree, I hope it stays open but I doubt it. If they are multi millionaires, that will help but, if traffic slows down and sales drop, they are smart and wont keep pouring money into a hole, we will just have to wait and see. And, the pain pill sprinkles was hilarious.
Confederate does have above average business knowledge and excellent persuasive writing skills; however, he/she doesn't have a clue when it comes to numbers. 300k is a very big number for small business to gross in 2 months! Franchise fee would be 15k, at most. Labor- no more than 10%. Total start up cost - 250-300k. However you want to put it, the business is turning no less than a 25% net profit margin, and that my friend would mean that orange leaf would net 75k in 2 months. There's not another small business in this town making that kind of money. At that rate the business will be paid off in less than 1 yr and the owner will be making pure profit. Even if business cuts in half, you're still netting 3 figures. I don't k ow many people around here that would complain about that, much less go out of business

Starbucks had a horrible location. Orange Leaf has a perfect location.

300,000 is highly unlikely based on the number of patrons it would take to generate that sort of revenue. To the average Joe, 300k in sales must seem like a fortune but it's not. I seriously doubt they hit that number but even if they did there are expenses to openning any kind of business such as franchise fees, rent, labor, cost of goods, insurance, etc. Those numbers will drop for several reasons, loss of interest in something new, people are already saying they can afford to take their family once a week or less because it adds up quick and Lexington can support five OL and various others because it is a city of 500,000. I think OL sales will continue to be strong for awhile and then slack way off. I said the same thing about starbucks and look what happened despite people being excited and saying its coffee, everyone loves coffee, it wont close, what happened? The new wore off and they closed as predicted. Danville is nothing more than a little neighborhood in a lexington or a louisville and unless they start offering pain pill sprinkles, they too will close, just like starbucks.

Starbucks made money. Just not enough for it to be further out from the rest and have higher transportation costs to deliver supplies. Same with Somerset. They were making money too. The company had to cut some out.

FALSE. Franchise fee is $12,000, and they do not provide equipment. Straight from franchise disclosure document that corporate provides after you submit an application.

OL is correct, it states expected start up costs between $180,000-$200,000. They did not do $300,000 is sales in two months, not a chance. I have been several times because my kids like it but I have to agree with others on here, danville is too small of a town for something specilaized like OL to survive. Sure its doing okay now but as soon as the novelty wears off, reality will set in. i give them no more than a year before it closes.

If you read my original comment you see where I stated that the franchise fee was no more than 15k and the total start up cost would be200-300k. I also said they are likely to gross 300k+ before centre students return, and they are "on track" to do that in 2 months. So i don't know how OL is right about anything. OL stated that the franchise fee was 180k; I simply said that was false.
You all are really ignorant if you don't think Danville can support one frozen yogurt store. I mean seriously, it's one store with ZERO competition! If Danville can support a liquor barn, Applebee's, OL Charleys, etc.... What in the heck would make you think it can't support a yogurt shop!?! The place is raking in dough! Period!

You are an idiot. Danville is far from a hicktown. Not saying it's a big city or something special, but it's certainly not a hicktown. Harlan is a hicktown. Pineville is a hicktown. Danville is a nice small town with a lot going for it. Sorry that you only associate with the 'hicks' of Danville.. For the people who have good jobs, and steer clear of Opiates, Danville can be a wonderful place to raise a family and have a high standard of living without having to be a millionaire. It's a shame people like you that hate their lives blame it on where they live rather than taking responsibility and making something of themselves. You suck, period. Nothing but a envious fool.

I agree with Shannon and Danville is most certaintly not like Lexington or Richmond. Centre is a fantastic school but has how many students? UK and EKU are major universities with tens and tens of thousands of students. Danville cant and wont support a store like orange leaf, it can be on the pricey side and college students dont have money and neither do pillheads and rednecks so to me, bad idea, someone is gonna loose allot of money.

nobody goes to centre unless they have lots of money

I go to centre and don't have lots of money. This is a big misconception. Centre gives out TONS of scholarships every year for academics and athletics.

I love orange leaf! It's delicious and cheap!

Cows outnumber people in lexington too, so what's your point?
