A new yogurt bar decorated with vibrant reds and greens recently opened at Tamarack Village in Woodbury, next door to the new Fannie May shop.
Cherry Berry, a franchise owned by Holland Investment Group, took the vacant 2,800-square foot space and turned it into a new hangout place for all ages.
General Manager Nate Froeschle said the company wanted to bring something new to the Woodbury market and offer healthier treats.
Cherry Berry is opening 50 stores in Minnesota in 18 months – Woodbury was the fourth to open after St. Cloud, Shakopee and Brooklyn Park.
The self-serve yogurt bar is stocked with a number of toppings and yogurts, which are shown on a bright red tiled wall.
“We rotate through 50 different kinds of yogurt but we have 14 on hand,” Froeschle said. “The customer can totally get what they like; they can add whatever they want.”
He said all yogurts are fat free or low fat and some are sugar free. Cherry Berry also offers sorbet options.
“So it’s a healthy alternative for people versus ice cream or fast food,” Froeschle said.
The toppings vary from almonds, peanuts and graham crackers, to coconut, chocolate chips and candy.
The bar is also stocked with fresh fruits for toppings.
“Some people will even come in and just get a cup of fruit,” he said.
Cherry Berry charges by the ounce. Customers pick their yogurt and toppings in 16 and 20-ounce cups and pay for however much they end up getting.
Cherry Berry is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and until 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
Froeschle said the goal is to make it a comfortable hang out space for students to study, groups to gather and friends to meet in the Wi-Fi and television equipped facility.
There is also a party room in the back of the store decorated with the same vibrant colors.
Cherry Berry plans to donate 10 percent of sales at all fundraising events held there from 4 p.m. to close, Froeschle said.
