Yogurtland franchisees Siawira, Natalio, Sujono

Yogurtland signed a multiunit deal with a franchisee to enter Indonesia; the frozen dessert chain already has locations in the region in Australia, Myanmar, Singapore and Thailand.

Yogurtland Indonesia Global Mandiri plans 10 locations in three years; the first opens in October in Central Park Mall in Jakarta, the country’s capital.

The Irvine-based chain said Indonesia has 173 malls for its 270 million people. Partners in Global Mandiri—Franseda Natalio, William Siawira and Erwin Sujono—most recently brought a South Korean cosmetic brand to the country.

Yogurtland has about 320 locations in the U.S., including about 20 in OC, and seven other countries. It was the No. 13 OC-based restaurant chain with $164 million in 2017 systemwide sales, down 9%.

The Business Journal will publish its latest list of restaurant chains on July 22.
