– Highly Anticipated Healthy Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt Shop Opens In Bell Towne Center – Free Frozen Yogurt Friday, June 25 from 4-8pm –

Tempe, AZ (June 23, 2010) – Yogurtini®, originally established in Tempe, Arizona in 2008, today announces the grand opening of the new Phoenix location. The self-serve frozen yogurt shop has become the “buzz” of the town with a somewhat cult like following for their non-fat, real yogurt, pay by the ounce concept, where you can ‘serve-yo-self®’ and make your own frozen yogurt creation just the way you want it. The new Yogurtini® is located at 475 E. Bell Rd in Phoenix in the Bell Towne Center and serves over 16 flavors and over 65 toppings. On Friday, June 25th, from 4-8pm, Yogurtini® will be giving out FREE self-serve frozen yogurt.

“We are so excited to be open and bring Yogurtini® to our Phoenix residents,” said Stan Kinworthy, owner of the Yogurtini® franchise. “We decided to open a Yogurtini® because of the premium yogurt, ingredients and toppings. We tried many different yogurt shops before we decided open a Yogurtini® franchise, and their product was high quality, healthy, and they didn’t sacrifice any flavor. We are currently looking at opening 2 to 3 other shops in the valley and possibly out of state as well,” he continued.

Providing its customers with a unique experience upon each visit, Yogurtini® offers16 fat-free flavors each day, rotating from its extensive list of exclusive frozen yogurts. Yogurtini® regularly has classic flavors such as Ultimate Chocolate, Classic Vanilla, Chelsey’s Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter, but there is always a surprise for the more adventurous like Northshore Pineapple Tart, Island Coconut and Green Apple Tart. The incomparable Yogurtini® “House” Tart, along with a non-dairy and no sugar added frozen yogurt option is always a main stay.

“We hope everyone can make it out to celebrate the grand opening of our Phoenix location, the free frozen yogurt nights are always exciting and give the community a taste of our fun atmosphere and amazing yogurt flavors and toppings,” said Chelsey Nelson, co-founder of the Yogurtini® brand.

With community philanthropy always a priority for Yogurtini®, this event will be taking donations for Ear Candy® which is a non-profit organization devoted to providing kids access to music education. Arizona is currently dead last in per person educational funding and arts programs are the first to get cut.
