LYNCHBURG, VA (May 6, 2013) – Bloop Frozen Yogurt will soon move two existing stores to new locations, expanding Bloop’s footprint across the Lynchburg region. These stores will remain locally owned and move into areas that today don’t offer a place for family and friends to congregate for yogurt.
Bloop’s flagship store, located in Wyndhurst and corporately owned and operated by the Lynchburg area founders, will be moving to a bigger location with higher traffic in the Cornerstone development on Greenview Drive off of Timberlake Road, where the Texas Inn located their second restaurant.
“We are extremely excited to be moving next to great places like the T-room and other local restaurants that Cornerstone has in the works,” says Josh Oppenheimer, co-founder of Bloop. The residential and commercial growth in Cornerstone will create more walk-in traffic and parking for the store. In addition, the store will be larger, providing space for more yogurt machines and, as a result, more flavor varieties. The Grand Opening will be June 1, 2013.
The Bloop on Wards Road is relocating as well. The new location will be owned and operated by a local family, who will set up shop in Madison Heights, providing Bloop access to the people of Amherst County. Beyond delicious frozen yogurt, the Amherst Bloop will offer soft serve ice cream and coffee.
The Bloop store on Candlers Mountain Road will remain in its current location but will undergo a renovation to prepare for its new owners. This store, first owned by Bloop Corporate, was recently purchased by a local family and will transition to an owner-operated model.
“We want to provide the best possible experience for Bloop customers,” says Josh Oppenheimer, co-founder of Bloop. “We are focused on locating Bloop stores in markets still ripe for frozen yogurt. We are excited about where Bloop is going and will be announcing new offerings in the near future. As Lynchburg-area residents, we started Bloop in Lynchburg and want to provide Lynchburg and the surrounding communities with the highest quality products.”
If you are interested in owning a Bloop there are many prime locations available nationwide. Call Louise Callaway today at 434-319-3070 for more information.
