You Say When Yogurt Shoppe continues its success with a new frozen yogurt store in Brandon

BRANDON — The first You Say When Yogurt Shoppe opened just a few years ago at Westfield Brandon.

New ones have been popping up around Florida every few months since. The newest opened March 9 at Bloomingdale Square, on Bloomingdale Avenue near Bell Shoals Road.

It's about the 18th You Say When Yogurt Shoppe, said owner Bart Guida, and another two dozen or so are getting ready to open soon.

You Say When is a self-serve yogurt shop, but Guida said customer service is a key ingredient to its success.

"When you walk through the door you'll be greeted," Guida said. "We'll ask if you've been to You Say When before and make sure you're familiar with the store and the product."

The product includes 10 flavors of yogurt (more will be added soon, Guida said) and 40 toppings. Customers can pick the cup size they want, create their own yogurt treat and pay by the ounce.

The yogurt is fat-free, and all the fruit toppings are purchased from local suppliers and sliced in the shop, Guida said. Nutritional information is featured prominently on the walls.

Among the other offerings are smoothies made to order and frozen yogurt cups for customers who want to stop in and grab something quick to take home. Customers can still add all the toppings they want; because the yogurt is frozen it will stay cold until getting home.

The new You Say When Yogurt Shoppe is at 825 E Bloomingdale Ave., near the Chipotle at Bloomingdale Square. It's open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; and noon until 9 p.m. Sunday. Call (813) 654-3252 or visit the You Say When Yogurt Shoppe Bloomingdale page on Facebook.
