Needham, MA (PressExposure) July 26, 2013 -- Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt opened its 285th store on June 28th, at 1185 Highland Avenue, next to Sudbury Farms, Needham, Mass. To celebrate this milestone, on Wednesday, July 31st, Orange Leaf is giving away free 8 oz. cups of froyo complete with tempting toppings to all customers at this location during a grand opening celebration between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Additionally, there will be raffles to giveaway dozens of t-shirts and travel cups as well as an I-Pad Mini. Balloon artists and other children's entertainment will be included.
"We're thrilled to celebrate our grand opening in the wonderful town of Needham," said, Gerry Pelissier, co-owner of the Orange Leaf Needham location. "We chose this location due its proximity to the Needham High School - across the street! We believe that Orange Leaf can make a difference in providing a "healthier dessert" to kids and adults alike with a low or no-fat, great tasting treat.
He continued, "We make 16 flavors of froyo fresh each day from a portfolio of our 70 for us to choose from. So far our most popular flavors are Brownie Batter, Oreo, Orange and Vanilla Swirl. An example of our seasonal offerings is Root Beer Float."
Pelissier added, "We are all about choices and giving back to the local community. We offer over 50 different toppings from fresh fruit (including chocolate dipped strawberries) to freshly baked waffle cups, hot fudge and home-made whipped cream. We hold fund raisers every Monday night and love to sponsor local teams. This summer we were proud to have our name on the Needham Babe Ruth League Tigers - a perr-fect match since orange is their team color! They will join us for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:00pm on July 31st and we will throw them a Free Froyo Party immediately afterwards.
Now, I'm excited to open my second Orange Leaf store here and provide the same great products that we serve to the community in Canton at Cobbs Corner. We are proud to say that each store employs 25 local people," announced Pelissier.
The Needham store encompasses a roomy 2,500 square feet and features a variety of seating including a community table for larger families and groups, cozy orange leather couches, high top tables and more.
