FroZone, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, has opened in downtown Tiffin.

Nadine Felton, who owns the shop with her husband, Mitch, and two daughters, Toria and Ari, said the shop opened last week. So far, business has been steady, she said.

“I think everybody likes it,” Nadine said.

“We didn’t have frozen yogurt (in Tiffin), everyone was going to Findlay. We thought it’d be really fun to have one downtown, so when the space opened up, we decided now or never.”

Nadine said the shop, located in the Laird Arcade, offers 12 flavors of frozen yogurt, including some with no added sugar.

“We usually have one or two that have no sugar added and most of the flavors are non-fat or low-fat,” she said. “We also will be offering a dairy-free option.”

Nadine said frozen yogurt is available in two sizes, and is sold by weight. Customers can top off the yogurt with a variety of cold and hot toppings, she said. Toppings include candy, fruit, granola, nuts, hot caramel and hot chocolate.

“We offer 15 different dry toppings,” she said. “We just have a wide variety.”

Nadine said FroZone’s spoons are unique and make the difference.

“You have to come and see,” she said.

Nadine said FroZone is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 4-11 p.m. Saturdays and 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Sundays. Thanksgiving and holiday hours may be different, but are to be posted, she said.

“We hope it’s successful,” Nadine said of the shop. “We just hope it’s a fun place to come and enjoy some yogurt and meet up with friends or bring family. We hope it draws people downtown.”

A ribbon-cutting is planned for 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
