The ProYo Story
Nathan Carey, the founder of ProYo, didn’t actually start out in the frozen dessert business. He began his working career in the construction industry, but soon became more interested in the frozen yogurt and smoothie business.
His new adventure began when he opened a drive-through smoothie bar in Santa Barbara, where ProYo is now based. He saw that his new business was something he truly cared about and wanted to continue to make more exciting frozen treats.
ProYo’s journey into the hands of grocery store customers began with a line of healthier frozen yogurt smoothie tubes.
Carey had suffered a devastating weight lifting accident and had to complete rehabilitation treatment. He broke his arm in 3 places and needed to go through rigorous training to get his arm back to full health.
During that time, he met a lot of people along the way who had specific nutritional needs, but the foods they had available were “joyless.” These were people who had diabetic issues, specific protein-based recovery diets, or other requirements that limited their options.
That’s when he knew he wanted to help people with nutritional needs get the treats and good-tasting foods they really wanted. He invented the smoothie tubes and they saw success, especially in athletes who enjoyed the tubes as a healthy treat.
The natural next step, then, was ice cream.
Why is ProYo Ice Cream the Better Choice?
So what is ProYo ice cream, exactly?
It’s a high-protein, low-fat ice cream product that also contains less sugar and calories than regular ice creams.
Designed for those who need certain nutritional components to their diets, it’s meant to provide the yummy taste and satisfaction of ice cream without the added sugars, fats, and other unhealthy additives.
Carey noticed that frozen yogurt sales in the last little while have declined. He says this is likely due to consumer demand for more natural ingredients. According to the ProYo founder, many low-fat ice cream and frozen yogurt companies use artificial sweeteners and other ingredients to get the right taste.
ProYo ice cream uses cane sugar and xylitol. These two ingredients have less calories than sugar and are lower on the glycemic index.
As of now, there are 7 delicious flavors to choose from:
- Vanilla bean
- Mint chip
- Dutch chocolate
- Blueberry pomegranate
- Dark chocolate truffle
Each flavor contains few ingredients, no artificial preservatives, and just enough natural flavors to make you forget you’re eating something healthier.
Did we also mention that ProYo is gluten free? Those customers suffering from Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity can now breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy without worry.
Giving Back to the Consumer
ProYo doesn’t just stop at ice cream and frozen yogurt smoothies.
The company gives back to the community as much as possible, supporting many organizations and people in need. Their company core values state that they believe in helping everyone, no matter how large or small their issue is.
In 2015, they sponsored the Long Beach Special Olympic Games. In addition, in 2016 they partnered with the Military Muscle Foundation to support veterans suffering from PTSD and mental illness.
ProYo is adamant about standing out from the bigger corporations that don’t give back to the customers who make them successful. For this reason, they continue to support many charities, community events, and people in California and beyond.
