So why did Schwan's change its name? 

They explain on Yelloh.com "We are incredibly proud of our 70+ year history as Schwan's Home Delivery. As the originators of frozen food delivery, we're always dreaming up new ways to innovate.

That spirit led us to evolve our name and our brand.

Our name change to Yelloh is part of a brand evolution, along with changes to our website and app, more delivery options, and digital tools to boost the ways we can be convenient to customers."
