Pinkberry coming to Westlake Village

Ok, i think this qualifies as a good rumor but i heard from a friend in the know at Pinkberry and they said there was going to be Pinkberry opening next to the Trader Joes at the North Ranch shopping center on Thousand Oaks Blvd.
They also said there was going to be one at the Topanga Mall.
What, a Pinkberry with plenty of parking and welcoming neighbors? Kind of ruins the Pinkberry mystique if you ask me.

    1. Further proof that, even if it's drawing a trendy chain, at least TO/Westlake is starting to get some chow-ish destinations.

      1. I totally agree, i think that pinkberry should be hard to get.. lolol

        surprisingly with all the hype, not alot of people know about it, well most of my friends dont..

          I take for granted how "connected" people on Chowhound are, and am taken aback when someone has never heard of some of the usual suspects that get tossed around here. Someone even said that they heard that Pinkberry had like two locations. My response was a sheepish smile and "Yeah, just in Westwood."

            They risk becoming as ubiquitous as a Subway. They are headed down a much traveled road to destroying their brand like Krispy Kreme did (comparing only business plan, not quality of food). I think in five years, most units will be shut down.

          2. i know its natural and all but it just really doesn't taste good to me at all
            golden spoon in agoura is all natural and actually sweet

            1. I've just recently found out about pinkberry. I'm sorry to say it's because I keep seeing pictures of Paris Hilton holding those yoghurt cups when she's out shopping. Anyhow, I noticed that they are also opening one in Pasadena on Fair Oaks (just south of Colorado Blvd.).
              Is it all that it's cracked up to be? And why just plain and green tea flavors?

                I cant wait for the Westlake Village one to open! it will be so great! I do agree though...it is kinda of a tradition for my friend and I...meet at her house and go to pinkberry (studio city) drive around a look for parking..stand in line--wait--wait--wait...etc. lol Well i love Pinkberry and work in Westlake VIllage so that will be great for me! Also there is one opening/comming soon to the Valencia Westfield mall in Santa Clarita! Which is where i live.!(I know--horrible commute!)..so hopefully before summer is in full swing ill have one near work and home!
