Today we have another announcement of interest to Oak Forest types serving as our Sponsor of the Day post. Thanks to sweetFrog Premium Frozen Yogurt and The Shops at Oak Forest for supporting Swamplot!
The sweetFrog Premium Frozen Yogurt location at 1214 West 43rd St., in the Shops at Oak Forest, will be reopening in less than 2 weeks, under new ownership! That’s great news for the many customers who have been missing sweetFrog’s self-serve frozen yogurt and toppings, soft-serve ice cream, non-dairy sorbet, Chloe’s soft-serve fruit, and smoothies after the shop closed a few months ago. The location’s new owners and management team are mother-and-son partners Judy and Jonathan Brown, who also own the Papa Murphy’s Take N Bake Pizza 2 doors down. They say they’re excited to bring sweetFrog back to the neighborhood: “Everyone loves this place, it is such a great hangout for friends and families.”
Reopening day at the corner of 43rd St. and Ella Blvd. is September 27th. At noon, the doors and dispensers will open and the froyo will begin to flow again — along with a variety of discounts and giveaways. The discounts and giveaways will continue every day through October 15th, when the store will celebrate its official Grand Opening — from noon to 10 pm. (The Grand Opening will feature prizes, balloon artists and face-painters, games, return-visit buy-one-get-one-free cards, and the sweetFrog mascots, Scoop and Cookie. Plus, the new owners will be donating a portion of sales that weekend to More Than 1Way 2Play, the campaign to build an accessible, inclusive playground at Oak Forest Park.) If you want to reserve the party room for a meeting, birthday or art party, Scouting event, book club, or plain-ol’ private froyo feast, contact Jonathan Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools, churches, and other organizations can also receive donations of a portion of sales when they book community Spirit Nights at sweetFrog or Papa Murphy’s.
