Business Spotlight: Flying FroYo & Smoothies

16290e37fba33e289af25e6f60085480It took me a while to set down the ice cream and go for the frozen yogurt, but I was glad when I did! I finally got what all the hype was – it’s delicious! Now don’t get me wrong, I still love ice cream, but frozen yogurt is my new go-to when I need a cold treat. It’s also so fun to bring the kids to a place where they can (with some help from mom and dad), serve themselves frozen yogurt and add to it with such a wide variety of toppings.
