I scream, you scream, we all scream for yogurt: a new franchise, EarthFruits Yogurt, is coming to the University Park area near Sarasota.
Located between Sarasota, Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch in the Kohl's/Fresh Market shopping plaza
on University Parkway, the new 1,694-square-foot EarthFruits Yogurt
location is the second EarthFruits franchise in the United States; additional locations are slated to open in Oklahoma, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas and California.
Offering natural, healthy treats served in an upscale Internet cafe atmosphere, the family-friendly EarthFruits features up to 38 creamy melt-in-your-mouth flavors from tart to sweet. Fresh toppings including fresh, hand-cut superfruits, cookies, candies and nuts are available to please your sweet tooth, as well as lounge seating, free WiFi and two widescreen TVs, topping off the cafe atmosphere.
“EarthFruits Yogurt is pleased to be part of the booming University Parkway shopping area,” says Lori Uzzo, copy & PR manager for Grapevine Communications
, representing EarthFruits. “The owners believe this is going to be the shopping mecca of the area and were eager to establish a presence before the area is completely developed with the coming of the new mall in the next two years.”
The new location will celebrate its opening on Saturday, July 28th, offering 50 percent off of every purchase while giving away free yogurt to the first 25 customers and free gift bags to the first 50 people through the doors. Grand opening festivities are scheduled from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m., with live music, entertainment and family-friendly activities.
