Pinkberry dying?

I've been to the one on Sawtelle a few times and at different times and I've always been the only customer. Is it already over or is it just that location that isn't popular?

  1. Maybe because it's so cold out?

      I don't think they're dying out but rather since so many opened up, people have choices as to which one they go to instead of the one in Hollywood.

        The Wal Mart syndrome...their expansion is cannibilizing their other locations.

    2. I'd guess, like will47, that the weather is a big factor there. Better to cross the street and have a - not frozen - Beard Papa cream puff right now.

      BTW - I have seen that location busy, but never with the line out the door craziness I have seen at other locations (and I live 2 blocks away, so I pass that place something like 20 times per week).

        Oh. OH! It just hit me.
        Why not squish a Beard Papa into a cup of Pinkberry yogurt with berries???

          Why would you spoil a perfectly edible cream puff like that?? :-P

            This whole Pinkberry thing seems like something from a Bud Lite Real Men of Genius commercial... Sweet Mercy please just someone light a match...

        1. its tucked in and so hard to find, I doubt if a lot of people even know about it.

          1. I'm part of the minority in that I didn't really see the big deal with Pinkberry. It tasted fine enough, but I think all the hype might of killed it for me. From all exhaustive glowing reviews I read I imagined eating it and being transported to nirvana. Instead I was left standing there with a spoon...there was no nirvana.
