You heard it first… Roger L. Clawson, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt, will be a very special guest on our EventComplete Radio Show on Thursday, August 4th at 2 PM PST. If you’ve ever devoured a cold cup of “fro yo” from Golden Spoon then you don’t want to miss out as Clawson spills the juicy details about his yogurt empire! I am personally excited to tune in to the show as a former Assistant Manager at Golden Spoon in Rancho Santa Margarita/Plano Trabuco from April 06- August 08. Working at Golden Spoon was one of the highlights of my teen years not only because I thoroughly enjoyed eating “Gspoon,” but because I made several long-time friends. I will definitely be sending out a mass text to my fellow co-workers letting them know that my company works directly with the head honcho of our old stomping grounds. In addition, the staff at EventComplete can not wait to launch Golden Spoon deals across the country on Groupon.com.
