FINE FORCE: The New Deal Is Coming to Frozen Yogurt, Frozen Wines & More!
Frozen yogurt shop owners across the country are facing a historic day, as President Trump’s proposed freeze on their sales and freezing of their franchisees comes to fruition.
The president’s executive order suspends federal subsidies for all businesses that sell, serve, or process frozen yogurt, frozen wine, and other beverages, including frozen breakfast cereals.
Frozen yogurt shops will likely be among the first affected, and the new regulations have already caused an uproar among some ice cream and other food companies.
“The new executive order will negatively impact small, local ice cream stores, as well as local frozen yogurt shops,” according to an article from the Washington Post.
“If you sell frozen yogurt to a customer who may be under the age of 18, you can’t give them a free drink or dessert.
You’ll also be subject to additional inspections by the FDA, which could mean fines and legal consequences for you.
If you’re a large chain ice cream shop, you could be subject as well.
In addition to the freeze on sales and franchisee freezes, the new executive orders prohibits businesses from using certain foreign labor in the production of frozen yogurt.”
I’ve got to take a stand.””
We’re just not going to get that support anymore, and I’m not going anywhere.
I’ve got to take a stand.”
The president has said that the freeze will help protect Americans from the spread of avian influenza.
“You know what?
This is good news.
The avian flu has been killing Americans.
I’m going to have a great Thanksgiving,” he said.
“This is good for our economy.
This is great for our country.
It’s good for people in our communities.
And we will be able to get back to our businesses.
But you know what we’re going to do?
We’re going back to the free market.”
Ice cream makers are still fighting the new rules, though.
In Colorado, where the ban will be in effect, there is already a number of frozen food companies, including Big Gulp, who are looking to re-open.
Hargroves ice cream business, which makes frozen yogurt and other frozen food, will be one of the few to reopen.
He’s still waiting on a letter from the Department of Health and Human Services, which says that the frozen food businesses will be allowed to reenter the market.
And now it’s time for Frozen Yoguas to start making money again.
“Our goal is to get a frozen yogurt business going again,” Hargrot said.
