MarketPlace opens new yoghurt shop

First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

A new frozen yoghurt shop has opened at the Heron Bay MarketPlace.

The supermarket chain set up shop themselves after they were unable to find a tenant for a vacant spot in the MarketPlace Plaza.

A company spokesman said: “We started to look at what would complement the other businesses in the location and decided on this.”

The new venture — called Zwirl — sits alongside fast-food shops and the spokesman said business was already brisk only a week after opening.

He said: “So far it's going well and going smoothly — we've had very good feedback about the quality.”

And he did not rule out expanding the concept into other MarketPlace stores around the Island if the new venture proves a hit.

The spokesman said: “We're going to monitor it over the next couple of months and we may look at the possibility of some other locations.”

The new store offers self-serve low fat frozen yoghurt, non-dairy sorbets, gelatos, Italian ices and custards served in freshly-baked waffle cones.

Around 24 flavours — that will change regularly — are on offer every day, as well as 36 different toppings.

The store also offers takeaway Italian ice cream in 28oz tubs.

The store is open between 11am and 9pm, Monday to Saturday, and between 11am and 7pm on Sundays.
