Mid-April, Still No Fro-Yo at Two Reston Spots

It looks as though Reston’s two Yogiberry locations are closed for good.

Both the Reston Town Center store and the South Lakes Village Center store closed “temporarily” last fall, leaving signs on the door that said they were taking the winter off and would be back in March.

We are heading toward late April and there is no sign of life at either store.

The Reston locations have also been taken off Yogiberry’s website, which mentions locations in Rockville and Gaithersburg, Md., and Cleveland Park in D.C.

Voice mailboxes for both locations were full and not accepting messages.

Riding the frozen yogurt wave of a few years ago, Yogiberry opened both Reston locations in 2012.

The chain has 11 area locations by 2013, but then closed in College Park, Pentagon City, Olney and Friendship Heights soon after, according to Yelp listings.

Need a frozen yogurt fix? Iceberry at Reston Town Center, Cold Spoon at Hunters Woods Village Center and Sweetfrog at North Point are all open.

    Meanwhile, the frozen yogurt place at Hunters Woods is still operating on their extremely limited “winter hours” which means they’re only open for a few hours in the late afternoon and evening. I can’t see them lasting much longer, especially given that Hunters Woods is losing tenants at a pretty quick rate.

    No Fro-yo or Hooters.

      At my imaginary reston Hooters there is Book Club every Wednesday night. “Service staff” creatively read selected passages (for tips) and the participating clientele debate the meaning and implications through beer burps. If you don’t agree with someone you can throw at them your chicken bones. Next week – Thucydides, Book 3. Week after next, Starship Troopers.
      Oh! don’t forget the cigars!
      Wait a minute. That’s not Hooters.

    Investment bankers must be special. Someone decides that Frozen Yogurt chains are a good idea and suddenly the landscape is littered with them. How many chains are there? I could name five off the top of my head and they all came to most areas within two years of each other. Then came the burger chains? How many burger chains are there? I can name five off the top of my head and they all came to most areas within two years of each other. Who gives these people money? Who makes these decisions?
    Investment bankers are sheep. The whole finance community is full of rot.

      In six months you will be surrounded by a half dozen different chains claiming to be “The Chipotle of Pizza”.

        Pizzanese in Herndon already shutdown.

        Pie Five Pizza recently opened in Dranesville.

        I like the style. I am guessing this style will stick.

        Thanks for the heads up.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Screw Fro Yo. We need to lure back Milwaukee Custard.

    Investment bankers are sheep. It reminds me of Hollywood financing. Can’t get behind something unless it has a precedent of success and chases the easy money. The whole finance community is full of rot. It clearly has implications for the economy and beyond.

    Wait a minute. That’s not Hooters. That’s Valhalla. Hmmn, Maybe I could open a Valhalla at the Tetra site. Who would frequent this place? What would Tuesday nights be?
