  • frozen yogurtOrange Leaf Yogurt plans to open at least two new locations by year's end, adding to existing stores in Carmel and Fishers. The next location for franchisees Mark and Christy Baugh is in Noblesville at 141st Street and State Road 37. The store is slated to open in late October. The Oklahoma City-based chain also plans new locations for Brownsburg, Franklin, Indianapolis, Plainfield, Shelbyville and Zionsville.
  • Yogi Frozen Yogurt, a homegrown competitor, last week opened a second location in Fishers. The new one is along Allisonville Road just north of 116th Street, and the first is at 116th and Brooks School Road. The chain is owned by the Elscott family of Fishers.
  • FroYo opened in August along 82nd Street just east of Castleton Square Mall. The independent shop offers 16 flavors, the most among local frozen yogurt concepts. It occupies a former bank branch including a "flavor" vault and has a large outdoor seating area.
  • Yo Twist Yogurt and Coffee has filed plans to open a 336-square-foot shop at Washington Square Mall. Owner Moussa Khoury says the shop, in part of the former Macy's, initially will sell from a window but Khoury hopes to eventually offer a self-serve option.

Heard of any others? Which is your favorite?

  • Is yogurt suburban?
    What is with the suburban location of all these joints? Washington Sq aside, the rest are way out there.
  • Familys...
    Lots of available space in the suburban markets and reasonable prices combined with the demographic of young familes. That's probably why you see so many of them in the outlying areas.

    Location is going to dictate which ones ultimately succeed, I dont know that Indy really can support that many froyo shops. We used to go to Huddles quite a bit but the newness has worn off a little bit.
  • Pinkberry
    I was in New York City recently and discovered Pinkberry frozen yogurt. It was very good and the price included a large selection of fruit, nut and sprinkle add- ons. There were some add-ons that were priced more expensively, but I loved their original slightly sour flavor with fressh strawberry and pineapple chunks.
  • Yummy
    There is a great new place called La Paix in the Kohl's complex at Keystone. Just went there last week!
  • Yogulatte
    How could you miss Yogulatte on Mass Ave? Delicious rotating flavors, great topping selection, and low price.
    • Huddles
      Huddles Frozen Yogurt is also opening a new location in Carmel
    • Yogulatte
      That place is great... didn't miss it, just writing about new ones.
    • Orange Leaf

      There is an Orange Leaf in Avon that opened a few weeks ago, just adding to the list.
    • Orange Leaf
      Orange Leaf also has a location that recently opened in Avon....3 visits last week...the stuff is REALLY GOOD!
    • Best Yogurt
      La Paix at Fashion Mall Commons (Kohl's center at Keystone at Crossing)is the best and they are going to mix it up with fresh crepes!! I recommend giving it a try!!
    • Seasonal Extremes
      OOPS its winter, guess cold food won't pay the bills, just ask TCBY, Baskin Robbins, Dairy Queen or Ritters.

      Just wish I was selling the yogurt machines to these folks.
    • Zogurts
      Helpful staff, fresh flavors, many topping choices.
    • Ella's Frozen Yogurt on Indy's South Side
      My family and I have been enjoying Ella's Frozen Yogurt on the south side. A small, independent chain that really knows how to make their customers feel welcome and they serve great frozen yogurt!
    • Again?
      Frozen Yogurt? Really? Didn't we already do this in the 80s and 90s? Let's see how most of them do in January. Also, riddle me this: How does it make any sense at all for a human being to consume cow's milk?
    • New location opened
      Orange Leaf has opened a new location in Avon/Plainfield that is attracting crowds. The franchisees are not the Baughs.
    • New Yogurt Concept
      Another budding new Yogurt franchise out of New Jersey called Let's YO Yogurt is going gangbusters. They have like 16 different breakfast cereals and some HUGE self serve Coffee machine that can make like anything and the beans are ground FRESH each cup... Its AWESOME
    • Zogurts!!!
      Zogurts frozen yogurt is one that's not on the list and should be. Its the healthiest frozen yogurt store in the entire state of Indiana. It is all natural, fat free, sugar free, gluten free, diabetic and lactose friendly, and there are even dairy free options....By far the Best and healthiest frozen yogurt around!!!

      4825 E. 96th St., Suite 300, Indianapolis, IN 46240
    • Low price?
      Yogulatte's prices are hardly low. Plus the staff has the gall to put out a tip jar at a self-serve place.
    • Zogurts!
      Don't forget about Zogurts in Fishers. It's currently my favorite. Much more flavor than Yogi Frozen yogurt. It's located at Brookschool Road and Fall Creek, next to Scotty's Lakehouse.
    • Zogurts
      Zogurts is also an Indianapolis area yogurt store. They are located on the corner of Fall Creek Road and Brook School. Everything is all natural, fat free, gluten free, diabetic friendly, lactose friendly, super healthy and so much more. Check them out at Everyone is super nice and the yogurts is wonderful! Make sure you check them out!

    1. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

    2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

    3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

    4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

    5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
