CLARION, Pa. – Clarion Main Street will be getting a sweet new addition to its lineup of businesses later in March.
Yo-Licious, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, will be located in the same building where the Book Nook was previously.
The yogurt shop will feature 12 flavors that will initially include two non-fat flavors, two low-fat flavors, two sorbet flavors and two sugar-free. The remaining four flavors are made up of a “twist” feature that combines two flavors into one unique treat.
Right now, the flavors are not set for the opening of the store due to the focus put on the construction process. Owner Jody Scott plans on keeping the staple flavors of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Other potential flavors include banana and graham cracker.
Yo-Licious is coming to town with the help Scott and her experience in the food industry.
“My family has always been involved in the food industry; my mom has a restaurant, and I have a couple of aunts that have had restaurants. I have just grown up in that type of atmosphere,” Scott said. “We visited another self-serve frozen yogurt store, and it was our first time experiencing that type of shop, and my husband and I were amazed. Our kids had so much fun, and it was a great experience as a family. We thought that with the university and the high school that it could go well in [Clarion] and be a nice addition to Main Street.”
The shop will also feature toppings available for customers to put on their choice of frozen yogurt. Toppings include candy bar pieces, coconut, cereal, cheesecake bits and fresh fruit. The toppings are up to the customer, and price is based on the final weight of the frozen yogurt. Additionally, for the grand opening Scott plans on featuring Girl Scout cookies as an option for customers to top their yogurt with.
Yo-Licious will be open to an invite-only soft-opening on March 21 and 22, and the shop will be open to the general public on March 23 at 1 p.m.
While the date for the grand opening of Yo-Licious is not set, Scott plans on holding a buy-one-get-one free special for the occasion.
In addition, Scott has included a rewards program for customers that will be set up electronically.
“[Customers] come in and give their phone number and it tabulates on the check-out system how many servings you are getting that day and you are given credit for it electronically,” Scott said. “Every 10th one you get is free.”
Yo-Licious will be open seven days a week, from 11-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-8 p.m. on Sundays.
