A Brief but Incomplete Guide to Houston’s Frozen Yogurt Landscape

Attack of the more-or-less Pinkberry-like “is it really yogurt?” shops:

  • Berripop: Planning new locations “along Washington Ave.,” in Sugar Land, and in the Rice Village. Owner David Lee “plans to open at least 20 franchised and company-owned stores throughout Houston, Austin, Dallas and College Station over the next two years.” Already in Uptown Park, across from the Richmond Costco near Greenway Plaza, on Waterway Court in The Woodlands Town Center, in Meyerland Plaza, and in the Town & Country Village Shopping Center.
  • Fruituzy: The owners, who also own Fadi’s Mediterranean Grill, are “currently scouting sites for additional locations.” Already 2 locations on Westheimer, each in strip centers near a Fadi’s: one at the corner of Shadowbriar, just west of Kirkwood, and another at Dunvale.
  • Tasti D-Lite: New location under construction underground at Milam and Walker Downtown. Local owner Webster Foods “plans to open four to seven Houston locations in the next 12 to 18 months as part of a pilot program.” Already in Highland Village and at the corner of Post Oak and San Felipe.

There’s more!


  • Flavors: “Look for additional locations coming soon” — but where? For now, just in Westheimer Plaza, across from Bering Dr.
  • Swirll: What are their expansion plans? Already open in the Rice Village, next to Kroger on West Gray, in the Centre at Post Oak shopping center across from the Galleria, and in Sugar Land Town Square.
  • BlueBerryHill: Just one store, on West Alabama just west of Kirby, but you knew that already.

Got the scoop on any more yogurt maneuvers? Fill us in!

  • The expansion plans of Berripop and Tasti D’lite seem pretty aggressive.

    I must say Swirll on West Gray is my favorite. I love the buy by the ounce option.

  • I must be old and not hip because I only recently learned about the current yogurt craze. Not that 31 years old is acutally old. Though it is old enough to remember the last yogurt craze in the 1980s. They popped up everywhere and then all died out within 5 years. Back then it was TCBY and Columbo. All the hype was surrounding the evils of cholesterol in icecream.

    So some one inform me…. what is driving this latest yogurt boom?

  • Yogurt? Who cares about yogurt?

    Bring on the Bubble Tea (aka Boba) restaurant list. Not enough of those places in town. Best one is Bubble Island on Bay Area Blvd.

  • Note to self: Need my FroYo fix the next time I venture south of 1960, as my options are now expanding… lol

  • Neo’s on Fountain View between Westheimer and San Felipe.

  • I really like that Blueberry Hill place. Really fresh yogurt…could use some more flavors though.

  • Sweet Lola’s is still the best. I have yet to have a yogurt place nation wide taste better.
