The 1,400 sq ft store is currently under construction and is named: CoolYo Frozen Yogurt. CoolYo is expected to open in the spring of 2013. The café will feature a curved wall with 7 frozen yogurt machines with 2 flavors in each, along with a twist. In addition, there will be a full toppings bar with fresh fruit, and a large variety of toppings. A variety of choices will include: nonfat, low-fat, no sugar added, non-dairy, Greek, vegetarian, and gluten free. The café will feature the popular self-serve frozen yogurt weigh and pay concept that has been sweeping the nation.

Co-owners, Cheryl Gudobba and Jean Washington have been friends for over 10 years and are excited to open their new business venture. They are both moms of teenagers and are active in their kids’ school, community, and church. Cheryl and Jean are also health conscious and this made picking Yo Cream (owned by Dannon) as their yogurt supplier an easy choice, “we offer several all-natural products and our non-fat Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein (7 grams per 4 oz).” “We want CoolYo Frozen Yogurt to be a place where people can come and take a break from their busy day, and have a healthy snack in a positive, fun, clean environment. “ They recently had a contest for their “CoolYo Frozen Yogurt” facebook friends and asked them to suggest encouraging phrases to display in the yogurt café. Five of these sayings were chosen, and one was an original saying: “There is no I in Team, but there is a U in yogurt!”, written by Steve Ray. “We liked this saying so much that we are putting it on our first 30,000 custom cups!” shared Jean. All of the contest winners will receive a free yogurt each month for the rest of the year.
