Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken – Over.

Red Mango over and out in Hoboken

We talked about this earlier this year (see below), and now Red Mango Yogurt finally bowed out of the yogurt scene in Hoboken.

Yogurt places in Hoboken have a very checkered history. I wonder why that is? Horrible business model? Lack of repeat customers?

Red Mango Yogurt appears to want “out” of Hoboken

2/2/2015 Update:

Red Mango Yogurt just opened about two years ago here in Hoboken. And just last winter – we pondered whether Red Mango would be on the precipice of doom based on our casual observations of tepid customer traffic.

Well, it appears that we might have been right.

Red Mango is currently looking to SUB-LEASE their 1350 sq. ft. spot at 213 Washington Street. They probably had a two year minimum stay out of a 10+ year lease.

The cost? Around $70,000 per year, or just under $6k per month.

What does that work out to in order to break even there? A million ounces of yogurt per year?

Now open: Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken

2/13/2013 Update:

Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken now open - Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken - Over.Exciting news for some – run of the mill news for others: After nearly 10 months since signing the lease at 213 Washington Street, the Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken location is now open!

Frankly – I don’t eat frozen yogurt for my own reasons – but we received quite a few emails from satisfied customers who said that Red Mango was “a cut above” the other yogurt choices downtown. Especially the cookie cutter Hoboken Frozen Yogurt Bermuda Triangle places.

Others said they thought the taste was on par with Love & Yogurt – which was a good thing.

A few people told us that they are putting money down that Mon Cheri AND Koa Koa will go under before the end of 2013.

Red Mango certainly has a sweet interior, as well as a friendly staff. Hope they reach their goals in Hoboken!

Hoboken, NJ set to get Red Mango Yogurt


Taking the place of the doomed HomeMade Pizza Co. – is a franchised Red Mango Yogurt Hoboken location.

Located at 213 Washington Street, Red Mango Yogurt wins customers over with “gluten-free” and non-fat or low-fat yogurt products (which is why they probably have hundreds of locations.)

Eat yogurt at your own risk

I have no doubt this product likely tastes yummy – which is fine and dandy for those that don’t really care about their health (or have tremendous genetic traits), but just their small yogurt sizes have upwards of 35g of carbohydrates, and large sizes have over 80g of carbs! I don’t care what it’s “free” of – one of the most important health discoveries made is being ignored for the most part! But to each their own (blood sugar level), I suppose. All we can suggest here is “enjoy at your own discretion.”

Remember: As you “think” calories and gluten mean so much – might as well delve into the Good Calories, Bad Calories” book by Gary Taubes for a little education before you become too obsessed with sweets & treats.

There is another one opening up in Edgewater too – if you’d like to eat in the closet!

Listen, I’m sure – out of all the other yogurt locations across the board – these guys are probably doing something right. Whether it’s marketing, product development, social media or what have you, it matters very little. We at Hoboken411 believe that over-consumption of carbs is detrimental to human life in general. So “indulging” in a carb-loaded bucket of sweets (even if it includes fruit), is probably not a good idea. Kicking conventional wisdom and historical thoughts out of one’s head is not an easy task – until you understand the science and facts behind them.

Regardless – we have no ill feelings towards the Red Mango business, and faithfully predict that the market will dictate their success. Considering the percentage of the population that lacks comprehension and follows certain trends, these guys should be A-OK.

For the record not everyone goes gluten free for some kind of diet fad. For some of us gluten actually makes us very sick. We aren’t fat free freaks who binge on sugary snacks in our closets. I, for one, think you could be a little more considerate with the way you lump people into a category. I may not follow your zero carb sugar free diet but I won’t call you crazy for it.

:: Yogurt-yawn ::

Don’t you need sugar though to get the power and then the women? 🙂

I dunno. I don’t want to live until I’m 100. 70-something maybe…

I’m all for public opinion and people can agree and disagree on things. People’s diet seem to be the new argument on this website, however it seems like you went a little too far to describe this location as selling diabetes? Not everyone who eats sugar or carbs end up getting diabetes.

Robert Penn Warren said it best in All the King’s Men: “Every man is a suicide.”

We can all change the odds as to how and when, but not whether, we go.
[quote comment=”215307″]Fair enough, but I’d strongly recommend against eating sugar and carbs if you would like to almost eliminate any risk for getting said disease.[/quote]

Now there is Cold Stone, KoaKoa, MonCheri, Ritas, Ben and Jerrys, and some new place opening near the taco truck all selling Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt South of 5th Street, GENIUS (sarcastic) There is just one place to get ice cream uptown, probably the only one that will make money, he has that whole market locked

What is the obsession with all these yogurt franchises, is there that much markup?

Yogurt and Red Mango are getting popular not because of the markup but because of the demand for a healthy and tasty product. If you taste Red Mango and some of the other options out there of a similar serving size you realize how tasty it is and yet feels healthy and light. I would rather have Red Mango than an ice cream or yogurt from one of the smaller stores in Hoboken![quote comment=”215290″]What is the obsession with all these yogurt franchises, is there that much markup?[/quote]
