Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012 - Zinga, the world’s best frozen yogurt, will hold its Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, May 5th in Williamsburg Virginia, on the corner of News Rd. and Monticello Ave. Heritage Humane Society will be on location with some four legged friends and proceeds from the Grand Opening will go to the local charity. The Monticello shop next to Martin’s Grocery is the first of several planned for the area.
Zinga offers twelve flavors of delicious frozen yogurt daily. This self-serve concept enables customers to mix and match any combination of these flavors with over 50 toppings including fresh fruits. Customers create the size dessert they want and then pay by the ounce.
With over forty flavors in rotation, from Pacific Coast Tart to Salted Caramel Pretzel, there is something for everyone. A no-sugar-added yogurt and a dairy-free sorbet are typically among the options. Most flavors are gluten free and all frozen yogurt flavors contain live, active cultures.
Mike Sposa and Frank Islin, longtime Virginia area residents, are the Zinga area developers for the Richmond, Williamsburg and Tidewater area. “We are thrilled to bring Zinga to the Virginia Region,” says Sposa who grew up in the Richmond area and attended Old Dominion University. “We immediately saw the growth potential in self-serve frozen yogurt. It’s an exciting concept with both sophisticated and comfort flavors that’s new to this region. We’re confident it’s going to be very well received and are excited to be part of the team.”
John Fitchett, Zinga President, says, “We’re excited to expand Zinga’s high quality frozen yogurt experience to Williamsburg. With their proven track record and longtime community ties, Frank and Mike of Mid-Atlantic Union, LLC, Inc. were clearly the right choice as our partner to introduce Zinga to Williamsburg.”
At Zinga Frozen Yogurt, quality is a top priority and the toppings bar is no exception. Each topping is selected with the highest standards; such as fresh fruit that is hand-cut daily in-store. Every item offers a unique and delicious complement to the Zinga frozen yogurt flavors. In addition to frozen yogurt and toppings, Zinga uniquely offers fresh baked “bottoms” for your indulgence. The bottoms are baked in-store daily and include vanilla and gluten-free chocolate cake, waffle bowls, brownies and other seasonal selections.
