A new store at a shopping outlet has received a warm reception.
The region’s first frozen yoghurt store has opened at Royal Quays Outlet Centre with ‘Yogurlution’ the first business venture of its kind for Holly Wright and Mark Holmes.
Holly, originally from Morpeth, said: “Mark and myself have talked about opening a store for years, we have friends who own a frozen yogurt company abroad and after tasting a sample on holiday it became a daily necessity.
“Once you have frozen yogurt you don’t want to go back to ice cream. We have a range of flavours for people to try as well as a variety of yogurt milkshakes and smoothies.
“We both have a background in retail sales having built up other companies. We wanted to do something different and thought this would be a great venture.
“Going forward, we hope to open another store and are looking to expand our product range by offering waffles and other tasty snacks.”
Centre manager Judith Ramshaw said: “Yogurlution is a great addition to the centre, frozen yogurt is fast becoming a best seller.
“I am delighted that they chose Royal Quays as the location for the first shop, it is already proving popular and we will continue to assist them as they settle in.”
