New yogurt shop partners with community

BUFORD — The newest frozen yogurt shop in Gwinnett is offering a unique brand on a sweet treat.

Swirlz Yogurt Bar, which opened earlier this month near the Mall of Georgia, offers 21 flavors of the popular treat, with dozens of toppings. But unlike many of the new shops, Swirlz is not a franchise.

The slogan “Make your world taste brighter,” greets customers when they walk in.

“We believe that every person can come have a great time and great cup of yogurt and for their time with us we can help make their world taste a little brighter,” said proprietor Julie Janes, co-owner along with Jennifer Britt. “Thats not all, proceeds from all sales go to support holistic child development in parts East Africa that have been hit by the HIV/Aid epidemic and just as importantly, Swirlz is involved locally with organizations that are making the world taste brighter everyday.”

For more information about the shop, located at 2815 Buford Drive, Suite 107 in Buford, go to its website at www.swirlzyogurtbar.com.
