TEMPE, Ariz., June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Yogurtini®, originally established in Tempe, Arizona in 2008, today announces the grand opening of its Glendale location at 5870 W. Thunderbird Rd.
To celebrate Yogurtini's franchise expansion, Yogurtini's Glendale location will be giving out FREE self-serve frozen yogurt on Saturday, June 18 from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. Yogurtini, who is known for its philanthropy in local communities, has once again coupled one of its franchise grand openings with a local non-profit. Donations will be accepted during the event to help support Free Arts of Arizona (www.freeartsaz.org/). The Free Arts of Arizona organization brings the healing powers of the creative arts to abused, neglected and homeless children.
"After we decided to open a Yogurtini franchise, we chose a great location in Glendale," said Tim O'Brien, owner of the new franchise location. "These shops are very community and family driven, and that notion coupled with the fact that we get to partner with a charity close to our hearts, Free Arts of Arizona, makes me even more excited knowing that we aren't just creating a place of business, but a place that fosters relationships and that is also good for the community," he continued.
The self-serve frozen yogurt shop has become a sensation with Arizona locations in Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale and now Glendale. There are multiple Yogurtini locations in Missouri and Kansas and grand openings are planned nationally this summer in Colorado and Florida. Quickly building a devoted following of its non-fat, real yogurt, pay by the ounce model and by providing its customers with a unique experience upon each visit. The Yogurtini serve-yo-self® concept allows customers to make their own frozen yogurt creation, creating blends and concoctions, just like a signature martini.

Yogurtini® regularly has classic flavors such as Ultimate Chocolate, Classic Vanilla, Chelsey's Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter, but there is always a surprise for the more adventurous like Northshore Pineapple Tart, Island Coconut and Green Apple Tartini.
