Frozen yoghurt chain llaollao said on Tuesday (12 Nov) that its franchisee’s decision to close its outlets in Singapore was “very disappointing”, but it would be opening new stores soon. The Spanish brand began phasing out all its 29 outlets starting 7 Dec to make way for another yoghurt chain called Yolé, which began operations from 9 Dec. Yolé will also offer frozen yoghurt with a variety of toppings. Master franchisee D+1 Holding had decided to discontinue operations for llaollao, which was launched in Singapore four years ago.
Fans of llao llao in Singapore have taken to social media to mourn the loss of the yoghurt chain, a day after a Channel NewsAsia report on Wednesday night (6 December) saying that the Spanish brand will be phasing out all of its 29 outlets starting 7 December. Judging by the Yolé Taiwan Facebook page, the dessert brand will also offer frozen yoghurt with a variety of toppings. On Thursday (7 December), fans in Singapore rushed to llao llao to grab final cups of their favourite frozen yoghurt.
