OKLAHOMA CITY, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a stunning move, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, a self-serve snack franchise with approximately 300 global locations, nabbed a rare, talking Orange Unicorn to become its new Spokes-thingie. The Orange Unicorn, who arrived from a farm somewhere in the U.S., will oversee the company's snack inventions while daring their guests to show off their unique, one-of-a-kind, original selves. Geoff Goodman, a veteran restaurant executive, will remain president while overseeing the less magical tasks associated with operating the nation's most delightful snack franchise.
As Spokes-thingie, Orange Unicorn will focus on encouraging surprise celebrations of individuality through a wide variety of unique events and special promotions as well as drive inspiration behind totally unexpected flavors and snacks. Orange Unicorn's first order of business will be to promote "You Be You Day" on Tuesday, April 26. On this day, Orange Leaf guests will share their most unique, creative and unusual personality attributes in exchange for free froyo.
"Orange Unicorn is the ideal leader of a dare-to-be-different revolution," said Goodman. "I discovered him on a farm several months ago while with my product development team looking for inspiration for new flavors and snack inventions. He walked up to me on his hind legs, which was surprising enough, but then he showed me what he could do with his horn….mix froyo. We immediately brought him on our team and have been working together behind the scenes to create Swizzles, our newest product which is just rolling into stores. We can't wait to see what he comes up with next."
"I just hope to inspire everyone to know that the weird, differentness inside them is exactly what makes them awesome," said Orange Unicorn. "Be yourself. Be original. Be orange."
