Yo Love Frozen Yogurt has a cool recipe for success.


The shop on the northeast corner of Germann and Dobson roads takes a dozen serve-yourself yogurt fl avors, offers fresh fruit plus yummy candy toppings and then ups the fun with bright colors, free Wi-Fi, a computer station, join-in doodle walls and a party room. There’s also a computer where customers can take their photos to be used in the monthly videos that run on a screen in the shop. Among the neighbors who frequent the yoga shop are members of the band V-Knights, a group of young Chandler brothers which was selected for the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Kids Rock Stars program. Hear the band and enjoy free yogurt from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Wed., June 15 grand opening celebration. While Yo Love has been serving since the end of last year, owners Dale and Tina Menghe decided the beginning of summer was the best time to have a cool party and thank customers for their growing support. “We knew this was a great location with all the restaurants and retailers here in the Shops at Pecos Ranch,” says Dale. “And, this is such a family-oriented area. My wife and I live here in Chandler, so we are part of the community and love it.” Yogurt’s health benefi ts have made it a popular dessert of choice. In addition to the good-for-your- tummy active cultures, Yo Love’s frozen yogurts are certifi ed Kosher and don’t contain high fructose corn

Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry classics are always in demand, says Dale. He adds the custom oatmeal cookie has really taken off as well as the yellow cake batter and European tart. There are no-sugar yogurts such as the strawberry-dipped chocolate.


One or two fl avors change weekly, so there’s always something new to savor.


Ask for a tasting cup to try before buying. Pick one of various sizes of containers, select the yogurts from the machines then head to the toppings. Frozen yogurt enthusiasts suggest alternating different layers with yogurts and toppings. When done creating, the masterpiece is weighed and customers pay 38 cents per ounce.


Already a part of the neighborhood, Dale says they’ve done a number of school fundraisers and sponsored a Chandler girls softball league and a boys Little League team. All this summer, when a customer mentions they are with either league, 15 percent of the sale goes to it.


Open daily at 11 a.m., Yo Love closes 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday. The shop is located at 1900 W. Germann Rd. For details, call 480-248-7721 or visit www.yoloveaz.com.
