As with all of their other locations, Swirls and Twirls will be using Facebook, Twitter and interactive mobile marketing tactics to connect and dialogue with their customers. The Greenlawn Swirls and Twirls setting features a vibrant and unique interior, striking architectural lighting, music from a state-of-the-art sound system and free Wi-Fi.

After swirling up their own creations, yogurt fans move to a weigh-in station where the fee for their treat is only 49 cents an ounce.
