B:2 A Burger Boutique may have left the Summit Fair development, but another franchise may find success in the Lee's Summit market.
The Kansas City Business Journal reports that Yogurtini, a self-serve frozen-yogurt shop, opened this past Saturday at 880-J NW Blue Parkway (adjacent to Macy's).
"Lee's Summit is where I know our customers would love the Yogurtini product and experience, and we are excited to be able to open," owner David Kinworthy told the Journal.
The frozen-yogurt shop, based in Tempe, Arizona, has 16 rotating flavors and more than 70 toppings (fruit, candy and mochi) available. Among the seasonal flavors are Peppermint Stick, Eggnoggin and Grandma's Apple Pie.
Yogurtini entered the Kansas City market last year, opening stores in Zona Rosa, at 8749 Northwest Prairie View Road, and just off the Plaza, at 4853 Main. (In a head-to-head battle with Red Mango, Fat City declared Yogurtini the winner.) A fourth location in the Kansas City market has been mentioned, but no location has been announced.
Smallcakes, a local cupcakery, is also expected to open this month at the Summit Fair development. The owners recently signed a franchise deal with Beauty Brands International to take their concept national.
