Local startup chain Frozen Yogurt Store sells tasty treats in Rio Grande

 

From 2-year-old Sienna McCarthy to 65-year-old Bob Czumbil, quite a crowd seems to approve of the newly opened Frozen Yogurt Store in the Rio Grande section of Middle Township.


Holding a spoon to his big bowl of frozen yogurt - a mix of Alpine Vanilla, Red Velvet Cake, Dulce de Leche and Cookie and Cream topped with fresh blueberries and white yogurt chip morsels - Czumbil, of Lower Township, said he has been hearing rave reviews about Frozen Yogurt Store, which opened a location in Rio Grande on Aug. 20. So he stopped by to judge for himself.

 

One spoonful in, he held two thumbs up in approval.

The same positive reaction came from Sienna, who was too busy enjoying her Hershey's Kisses Chocolate-flavored frozen yogurt - with lots of rainbow sprinkles on top - to give a statement, but nodded in approval instead.

 

"That face says it all," said Sienna's mother, Katrina Prodan, 22, of Cape May, referring to her daughter's chocolate-covered smile. "I brought her here because everyone has been talking about this place saying, 'You have to go to Frozen Yogurt Store,'" Prodan said.

 

The Rio Grande location of Frozen Yogurt Store, 3301 Route 9 South, next to Island Sun Tanning and Starbucks in the Grande Plaza, is the companies second spot. Their first Frozen Yogurt Store location opened July 20 in Galloway Township in the Risley Square Plaza next to Dunkin' Donuts and across from the Municipal Complex.

 

Both locations offer free WiFi making Frozen Yogurt Store a cafe-like atmosphere where visitors can sit for a while.

The company modeled Frozen Yogurt Store after the trendy build-your-own frozen yogurt places popping up on the West Coast, owners said. Frozen yogurt is said to be a healthier treat than ice cream, with 3 grams of fat or less per serving, as well as live and active cultures - but it tastes just as good as ice cream.

 

"More people are health-conscious these days," the company spokes person said. "There wasn't really something like this in the area."

 

The company believes frozen yogurt's healthy reputation means customers come in more often than they would if it were an ice cream shop.

 

"People don't feel bad for a week after they eat it," they said. "Actually, they feel good about it."

 

Frozen Yogurt Store offers 14 flavors at a time, with more than 50 daily toppings - from pieces of kiwi and berries to walnuts and Captain Crunch cereal, bits of mint chocolate chips, rainbow sprinkles and crushed Oreos, to name a few.

 

"You can make about 5,000 different sundae combos," the company spokes person said, "as many and as much as you want."

The frozen yogurt is priced by weight, 59 cents per ounce. This fall, the Frozen Yogurt Store will introduce a line of seasonal flavors, including eggnog, peppermint stick, spiced apple pie and pumpkin pie. The two current locations have been seeing about 2,000 customers per day, the company spokes person said, and many are repeat customers.

 

By the end of 2011, they plan to open another Frozen Yogurt Store in Egg Harbor Township, and their website, frozenyogurtstore.com, says they plan to open more in Somers Point, Linwood, Manahawkin, Toms River, Belmawr, Cherry Hill, Sicklerville, Philadelphia and Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"Word's traveling, people are saying good things, our Facebook likes have been increasing by the hour," the company spokes person said. "It's been great."

The Current of Galloway Township
Build-your-own yogurt dishes is whole new culture

By STEVE PRISAMENT - Staff Writer

 

GALLOWAY – Frozen Yogurt Store Galloway is a new build-it-yourself frozen yogurt cafe owned and operated by the Frozen Yogurt Store of Galloway.

Spreading the word through social media, Frozen Yogurt Store has nearly 2,000 friends on Facebook and it's only been open since Wednesday, July 20.

"The Frozen Yogurt Store's slogan 'You Build it, we weigh it, countless combinations' is one reason for their success as children and adults alike love to create their own healthy frozen treat," said owner-manager..

"Frozen Yogurt Store was developed with the concept of the California-style frozen yogurt stores in mind, but the owners wanted to focus on offering a greater variety of premium frozen yogurt, and sorbets."

By offering 14 flavors at a time and four new flavors each week, Frozen Yogurt Store is able to satisfy customers who want a different taste every day of the week, according to Frozen Yogurt Store.

 

"Upon entering Frozen Yogurt Store you are immediately greeted by a friendly member of the staff who explains the process for constructing your own unique special healthy treat," Frozen Yogurt Store said. "After custom making your own yogurt combination from choices like Sweet Coconut, Hershey's Chocolate, Alpine Vanilla, Mango Sorbet, Caramel, Strawberry, New York Cheesecake, Island Banana, Blueberry Açai Tart, Sugar- Free Alpine Vanilla, Original Tart, Cookies and Cream, Reese's Peanut Butter, Red Velvet Cake, Cake Batter, and more … you head over to the amazing 50-topping fresh fruit and toppings bar, including seasonal fresh New Jersey fruit, over 50 dry toppings, your favorite cereals, and countless syrups, hot fudge, caramel and more."

 

Once you've completed your dish, you pay the cashier at 59 cents per ounce.

 

While 95 percent of their flavors are 100 percent fat free, others are low-fat and lowcalorie, containing less than 1.5 grams of fat and 80-100 calories per serving.

 

"Other benefits," Frozen Yogurt Store said, "Include lactose free, higher in protein than ice cream and the amazing benefits of the probiotic qualities of yogurt." The Galloway store is the first in a 12-store plan.

The store was quickly packed with Galloway residents who were given their first four ounces of frozen yogurt free.

"The store had a total of 800 customers on their very first day in business, and is quickly becoming an afternoon or late-night favorite for many of them," Frozen Yogurt Store said.

The owner attributes the success to the products' taste and low-fat, and low-calorie content.

Frozen Yogurt Store is open 10:30 a.m. to midnight seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Seasonal flavors will include pumpkin pie, spiced apple pie, Christmas mint and eggnog, according to Frozen Yogurt Store.

Weekly flavor updates, coupons and current promotions, job applications, company information and franchise opportunities are available at www.frozenyogurtstore.com. Other Frozen Yogurt Store locations now under construction include Rio Grande, Egg Harbor Township and Sicklerville, Frozen Yogurt Store said.

Galloway Patch - July 28, 2011

Frozen Yogurt Store Offers Wide Selection for Make-Your-Own Desserts

 

Galloway’s newest yogurt shop, the Frozen Yogurt Store at 319 East Jimmie Leeds Road in Risley Square, across the street from the municipal complex, has a little something for everybody.


The Frozen Yogurt Store, which opened just over a week ago, serves frozen yogurt and allows consumers to essentially build their own dessert.

 

The customer has a myriad of options to choose from.

 

One can construct a dessert that is probiotic, glutton-free, fat-free, dairy-free, or simply, “load it up with candy,” says owner.

“More of the kids [that come in] do that,” he said.

 

For customers looking for a dairy-free alternative, the Frozen Yogurt Store offers a menu of “sorbets” which are similar to water ice.

“You either have the people that make the giant heavy Sundays or light healthy [treats],” he said.  “It’s not like a typical dessert place.  You’re not going to just come in once a week and then feel bad for what you did.

 

“Ninety-five percent of our [products] are fat free. You can literally make healthy desserts.”

 

While the Frozen Yogurt Store has only been up and running for just over a week, he has plans to open three more stores in South Jersey—in Egg Harbor Township, Sicklerville and Rio Grande—within a year. 

 

There are also parties interested in franchising the store on the West Coast and in New York City, he said.

 

“We figured the first store should be the hometown store, so we can fine-tune everything,”  “We’re [seeing] seven to 800 people a day right now. Even between 10 and midnight. It’s very busy.

 

“We’re seeing people three to four times, in two to three days.”
