Fro-yo and family fun is ahead as Yogurtopia invites the entire community to come out from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23 to celebrate the grand opening of the new East Dearborn location, which is located at 6901 Schaefer Road.
The event will include music, face painting, special discounts and photo opportunities with Miley the Yogurtopia mascot. Dearborn Mayor O’Reilly will welcome guests with a special ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled at 4 p.m.
In addition, Yogurtopia is offering a special buy one get one free deal for all frozen yogurt orders during the event. If you go to the event, take a photo, tag it with #WelcomeToYogurtopia, and upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you’ll be entered to win free frozen yogurt for a whole year. Details will be posted at the event, and the winner will be chosen the day following the event.
Yogurtopia’s menu workhorse is their self-serve frozen yogurt and toppings. We are really excited about their crepes, which are cooked made-to-order. We practically drool just thinking about their simple yet effective Lemon Drop crepe, a holy trinity of perfection with just powdered sugar, lemon and butter.
“Every item on the menu is made with whole, healthy ingredients and delivered at an affordable price,” said president and founder of Yogurtopia Sam Abbas. “Our frozen yogurt is packed with ten times the amount of probiotics found in other frozen yogurts; our smoothies are organic; our coffees are organic and fair-trade.”
The new franchise locations have been custom designed to fit the communities they serve. East Dearborn’s Yogurtopia is right in the heart of Dearborn’s Arabic retail district. They have a special Za’atar and Cheese crepe, which is a cool fusion treat. Za’atar is a dried herb blend mixed with sesame seeds and salt. It is very popular in Middle Eastern cuisine.
Yogurtopia opened its first location in West Dearborn in December of 2010. Yogurtopia has spread across
multiple cities and two states in less than three years. The East Dearborn franchise location is owned by Abir Mehanna and husband Haitham Mehanna of Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
