Building a frozen yogurt store was very difficult running it has a whole new set of challenges.

                 Running two businesses is a new challenge in my life we probably should have worked out some issues before opening for instance getting suppliers lined up before we opened. We are using www.greenleafsf.com to supply fruit they have been very good and got things going pretty fast.  Greenleaf  will deliver even small items which for a start up yogurt business with fresh fruit has been very helpful of course we still have had to make runs to the local grocery store and Costco for those times that we did not order enough. We are also trying to get the suppliers of our local farmers market to stop on there way and drop fresh fruit off for us we can save some money and support local farms.

  1. Congrats on your new shop. I’m a huge fan of Pinkberry and I’m thrilled your shop opened in Marin. I’ve already stopped by five times in the last couple of weeks. Can you post the nutritional information somewhere, e.g., calories? Pinkberry’s original flavor is about 70 calories for a 1/2 cup serving, I’m curious if your product is similar. Great stuff, keep up the good work.

  2. Please call or email me as I would like to discuss with you live some of the challenges of opening a yogurt shop as I am looking to open one in New Jersey.

    Thanks,

  3. I have so many suggestions/comments for you about your shop. Is there anywhere that I can leave them that you will get them?

  4. Hey thanks for the comments and thanks for coming in the store Darrin we do have calories info now and it is posted in the store. I have been busy with my Painting business and building out the other store in San Rafael we have passed electrical, plumbing, framing inspections and now have insulation inspection on Monday June 1st.

    Kevin I will give you a call you can email me greg@frozenyogurtblog.com or ask questions here on the blog if you like also it would be cool to share the info to anyone else looking to start this type of business.

  5. Thanks Kelli for your interest you can email me greg@frozenyogurtblog.com or just leave comment here so we can share info I do have partners and not everything I want to do can be done due to style differences in managing, marketing and running a business which could be another blog.

  6. Dear Greg,
    I read your story about Frozen Yogurt Store…and I can understand your hard challenge. I really want to open a yogurt store in Folsom, CA and I am researching all information to build my business but I want to know how to buy equipment and supplies, how to get training of using the equipment and yogurt making. Would you please give me some advice? Thanks a lot for your shares.
