Yogurtland opens on Fourth Street in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg

New Frozen yogurt store has 16 flavors on tap

The self-serve frozen yogurt craze continues to flow into the city. The new Yogurtland, at 4946 Fourth St. N, has 16 flavors on tap and a toppings bar with 43 offerings. It has moved into the former location of Let's Eat, the make-and-take meal preparation business. California-based Yogurtland opened a store in Largo about four months ago at 10500 Ulmerton Road. Along with the expected standards, yogurt flavors include cheesecake, toasted coconut and red velvet cupcake batter. Last year, My Yogurt Cafe opened at 234 Beach Drive NE and Yogurtology opened at 3043 Fourth St. N.

Manufacturer buys Mastry Marine

Mastry Marine has been sold to Yanmar America, a manufacturer of industrial and marine diesel engines. Mastry, which has been selling Yanmar America products for 40 years, has talked with the Georgia company for years about a sale, said Tino Mastry. "They decided the purchase of our company was in line with them learning more about what their needs are with their customer," Mastry said. Yanmar America has bought other distributors in Europe. Mastry Marine, now called Mastry Engine Center, is one of its largest distributors. Mastry said the acquisition won't cause any other changes. None of his 54 employees will be cut. "It's business as usual. I'm the president," he said.

  2. Unlicensed contractor accused of faking death triggers policy change at Pinellas construction licensing board

    Local Government

    The unlicensed contractor accused of faking his death to avoid angry homeowners has triggered an immediate change in policy at the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board.

    Last year Glenn and Judith Holland said they paid a contractor thousands of dollars to renovate their future retirement home in Seminole. But when they tried to move in on Dec. 14, they said the home was in shambles and uninhabitable. They sent a text message to contractor Marc Anthony Perez at 12:36 p.m. looking for answers. Fourteen minutes later, they got back this text: "This is Marc's daughter, dad passed away on the 7th of December in a car accident. Sorry." Turns out Perez was still alive. Now the Hollands are suing him in Pinellas-Pasco circuit court. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
