All American Specialty Restaurants Franchise

Ice cream and frozen yogurt shop

In the mid-1980s, frozen yogurt was growing in popularity, but there were no shops in the major malls of Idaho, Oregon and Washington serving the treat. Seeing the demand for such shops in the Pacific Northwest, CR Duffie Jr. started the All American Frozen Yogurt Co. in Portland in 1986. The company began franchising one year later.

To reach a larger customer base, ice cream was added to the menu in 1989, and the stores became known as

All American Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt Shops.   There are now locations in shopping centers throughout the Pacific Northwest and West.
