Yogurt Biz Update

February 9, 2012 at 3:49 pm 20 comments

I am a busy bee these days!

For those of you who missed my post about our new business venture, my husband Chris and I are getting ready to open up our own frozen yogurt store called The Frozen Moose! It’s a non-franchise locally owned self-serve yogurt shop with 14 flavors offered at one time and 40+ toppings. The opening date is set for Valentine’s Day if all goes as planned and we are excited, anxious, nervous and can’t wait to get this little store up and running 🙂

That being said, I have pre-scheduled posts up until the first week of March so I don’t leave all of you hanging – that would be way too long for me to stay away from you all! Some may be shorter than others but I will continue to blog and post updates but if I am slow to respond to anyone, I hope you can understand a bit of a lag time on my end 🙂 I still have SO many recipes I would like to post but I simply do not have enough time in the day – I keep telling myself “when things slow down”…and they will! 🙂

I am ready for my sweets fix! Frozen yogurt here I come!

The flooring is going in this afternoon, we have machine training in the morning and tons and tons of work to do this weekend. Here are a few photos of the cabinetry and decor from last week – we went for a unique and non-traditional yogurt store look and feel that was “more  Montana”. Once I have more complete photos, I will make sure to post them 🙂

Wish me luck 🙂

    So exciting! It looks great – I love the slate. I wish I lived near a fro-yo place. Honestly, I have never been to one, how awful is that? I wish you all the best!!

    Eeeeeee–so excited for you!!! You have a fireplace??? This place is looking more like Caribou coffee shop–I absolutely love it. I cannot wait for my summer internship either 🙂 I’m going to rock the Frozen Moose!

    No need to reply because you have work to do, but I am wishing you the best of luck and wish I wasn’t living so far away, or I would be there for sure, since Frozen Yogurt IS my favourite treat. Love it with dark chocolate chips and caramel.

    • 12. naturalnoshing  |  February 12, 2012 at 10:32 am

      Thanks so much Laura! I wish you lived closer too!!! We have dark chocolate chips and hot caramel just waiting for you! 🙂

      • 13. laura1952  |  February 12, 2012 at 1:46 pm

        My mouth is watering just thinking of it. I’ll be eating it in spirit and continuing to wish you the best success more than you envisioned.

    This all sounds so exciting! I love the idea of self-serve frozen yogurt places – we have a couple of them in my hometown but their selection isn’t great. I just read the list of flavors you’ll have and I was in heaven…I might have to move in next door 🙂
    ps. love the name too!

    • 15. naturalnoshing  |  February 12, 2012 at 10:35 am

      Thank you so much Genevieve! We definitely have a long list of flavors to choose from 🙂 I wish you lived closer too so you could try them all out!

  • 16. stephanissima  |  February 11, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Very cool! Good luck! 🙂

  • 18. Sonia The Healthy Foodie  |  February 12, 2012 at 10:49 am

    OMG!!! This is soooo coming to life! Looks like a real shop. And a real nice one at that. LOOOOOVE the fireplace. I really wish you were closer, trust me, I’d drop in way often for a little frozen yogurt treat.

    On second thought, it’s probably best that you’re that far from me… 😉

    So excited for you girlfriend, can’t wait to see more pictures and get updated on your fantastic adventure. 😀

    Congratulations and best wishes on your new store! May you all do well and prosper.

    My folks were in the retail business and actually started their store–gifts, china, clothes, in the house we were living in at the time. We had to move out when it took over! 🙂

    • 20. naturalnoshing  |  February 23, 2012 at 9:21 am

      Thank you! I appreciate the well wishes 🙂
      WOW sounds like your family have a great business going, that’s awesome!
