Lindsay Good, the new operator of the frozen yogurt chain’s Goshen location, said she and co-owners Chris, Cory and Penny Good are planning to expand the restaurant’s frozen pie business and fundraising program for local groups.
“We’re looking to get into more catering, which can cater for offices or parties, that kind of thing,” Good said. “We really want to get birthday parties going.”
The shop will have a grand reopening Sept. 19 and 20, Good said. In the meantime, the new owners have added about 20 more toppings to the menu, including mini-marshmallows and gummy frogs, and re-decorated to add a kids’ area and couches.
The shop, which usually closes for the winter, will be open year-round, Good said. It will also honor coupons from the Granger and West Lafayette locations.
She’s also considering theme nights like princess or superhero nights where kids who dress up would get a discount.
Good, who grew up in the Elkhart area, said she and her husband, Chris, are first-time restaurant owners but have wanted to own a business for a while.
“This one kind of jumped out at us,” she said.
Former co-owners Chrissy and Brad Harper still own and operate the other two Urban Swirl locations. They’re planning to sell the West Lafayette location as well to spend more time with family and their two young children, Harper said.
“We want to get back to our original single location in Granger which is closest to home,” she said. “This will allow for me to focus more attention on that location, as well as have a family balance.”
