Some people prefer cereal on their frozen yogurt. Others prefer flavorful balls of fruit juice, known as ‘bobas’ in other parts of the world.
Regardless of your preference, you can cover your FroYo with whatever once national chain Cherryberry opens on Oshkosh’s north side this spring.
Franchise owner Jason Madsen said interior construction should begin shortly in the new retail building between Pick’n Save and Taco Bell at the corner of Jackson Street and Murdock Avenue. Cherryberry was instantly popular with the Appleton crowd when it opened last year.
Thirty to 45 days after that, likely in early- to mid-April, the build-your-own yogurt bar plans to open with a promotion that’s sure to be popular with Oshkosh consumers: Free FroYo during a friends and family event.
“We’ll have a night for anyone that’s friends with us on Facebook where they can eat yogurt for free,” Madsen said. “We set a record in Appleton with a line around the building for that event.”
Here’s a link to the Oshkosh Cherryberry’s Facebook page. Streetwise feels pretty confident free FroYo will bust the record Appleton set last year. Right, Oshkosh?!
For those not familiar with the concept, Cherryberry offers you your choice of a 16-ounce or 20-ounce cup that you fill with as much or as little of the store’s 14 flavors of frozen yogurt.
“We’ve got low-fat, non-fat, non-dairy, sugar-free and others,” Madsen said. “You can get whatever suits you best.”
Then come the toppings.
Nuts, cereals, candies, fruits, candy bars, cookie dough bites, cake bites, brownie bites, syrups, marshmallows, marshmallow crew and the aforementioned “bobas” are just a handful of the options available.
Madsen said customers then pay based on the weight of their concoction at the rate of 44 cents-per-ounce. The average cost, he said, is about $5.
