A new frozen yogurt shop opened its doors on Fry Street last Tuesday, offering chilly treats for students near campus.

The 1,200-square-foot self-serve Yogurtland is the newest retail space to take up residency at the Sterling Fry Street development.

General manager Jason Trosper said the intermittently chilly weather hasn’t deterred customer traffic, which has been steady since the shop opened.

A similar near-campus frozen snack dispensary flopped a few months after opening in October 2010. The short-lived Yogurt and Coffee Creations occupied the space across from Cool Beans Bar and Grill near the corner of Hickory and Fry streets, but closed its doors in early 2011 because of sluggish business.

The owners of the now defunct Yogurt and Coffee Creations, who were unavailable to comment, also own Yogurt Fusion near downtown Denton, which has been in operation since June 2010.

The new Yogurtland offers a rotating lineup of 12 flavors, and allows customers to add fruit, candy and other garnishes. Customers are charged by the weight of their frozen creations.

The California-based company was established in 2006. There are currently 12 locations in Texas, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin and now Denton.

Local businesses in the Fry Street area are not worried about losing business to the new confectionery. There’s no point comparing dessert with lunch and dinner, Crooked Crust general manager Josh Brawner said.

“They are far too different to affect each other,” he said. “I can’t see anyone replacing a pizza dinner for yogurt.”

Students considered satisfying their sweet tooth at the new establishment.

“I love frozen yogurt, and it’s nice to finally have somewhere to get dessert on Fry,” hospitality management sophomore Megan Draughon said.
