sweetFrog, a premium frozen yogurt franchise, plans a mid-May opening in the Legends Outlets Kansas City.
Customers will get to make their own soft-serve creation, choosing from 21 different flavors each day — some favorites that will always be on the menu, other rotating out — and more than 60 toppings. It also will offer nonfat, low-fat, sugar free and sorbet options and many gluten-free.
The Daily Meal named sweetFrog “America’s Best Frozen Yogurt” in 2013. Among the 50 flavors are angel food cake, apple pie, coffee house blend, cake batter, eggnog, french toast, gingerbread, maple bacon doughnut, and salted caramel corn. Toppings include cookie dough, cheesecake bites, walnuts and lime sauce.
sweetFrog, Richmond, Va., was founded in 2009 and has more than 325 locations in the U.S. and internationally. According to the website, the “frog” in the name stands for “fully rely on God” and the company says it shows that by contributing to the local communities through fundraisers for nonprofits, schools and churches.
Its new 1,588-square-foot Legends store will be at 1829 Village West Parkway, Suite T131. MeMa’s Old-Fashioned Bakery had formerly occupied the space.
The first area Pizza Studio also recently announced plans to open early this summer in the Legends Outlets. It is taking a space at 1843 Village West Parkway, Q103. An AT&T store formerly occupied the space.
At Pizza Studio, customers can select customized ingredients at the counter. They get their order served quickly thanks to a 2-minute firing time for the pizzas.
The menu includes custom pizzas and specialty pizzas like the Margherita (tomato blend sauce, basil, Roma tomatoes, freshly grated mozzarella and garlic oil) and the White (rosemary herb crust, extra virgin olive oil, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, Kalamata olives, freshly grated mozzarella and arugula).
