Frozen treats served up at new Yogi bar
8:43am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Business news
TWENTY-YEAR-OLD Fern Chisholm is not letting her age stand in the way of her entrepreneurial spirit.
By Friday, Fern will be the owner of York’s newest food and drink business, bringing the frozen yoghurt craze to the city.
Yogi Frozen Yoghurt and Smoothie Bar is set to open in St Sampson’s Square in time for the last-minute Christmas shopping rush.
Fern has been encouraged by her father Charles, who runs his own cleaning business in York.
“We went to Spain last year and I tried frozen yoghurt for the first time, and fell in love with it. I came home and researched it, and then put all the figures in front of my Dad and asked if he’d fund me.” Mum Joanne and sisters Anna, 14, and Nicol, 18, will also be helping out in the shop.
Frozen yoghurt is tipped to be a multi-million-pound market in the UK in 2014.
