Cherry on Top Yogurt coming to Culver City/Mar Vista

I can't really say if it is actually CC or MV, but it's going to be on the SE corner of Washington Place and Centinela in the former space where that wrong side driver-thru KFC used to be. There was an old thread about one of their locations in OC you can find here:

  1. That place has been taking years to open. Literally years. Literally. Years.

      I know... You'd think they give up by now, but evertime I drive by it's like got a new lightbulb put in... Odd.

        It's kind of funny. I actually thought the owner ran out of money and it wasn't going to ever open. According to the website the Culver City (and one in Lakewood) are "blooming to open." We shall see. In that older thread Ogwak says there's one on Lincoln/Pico, but seeing as it's from 2008, did it close? It's not listed. The company has franchises is several U.S. states, Kuwait and Egypt.

          I drove by the location a couple of days ago and thought I'd check the website of Cherry on Top. It says they are hiring, but check out the comments.

            After nearly another six months... It's a front. No sane person would invest 2+ years to open a franchise... : /

              It's an affront all to free enterprise and a profitable business model.

                when this whole saga began, Gelato Lounge hadn't opened yet.

                now, i no longer care whether they open or not.
                they would need to be selling something really extraordinary for me to actually drive by Gelato Lounge for whatever it is this franchise may offer.

        Yeah, I think I first noticed it around 09? walking back from the farmer's market.

        Weeks will go by with no activity, then you'd see some new paint or some cleaning, then nothing again for a few months. Very odd.

        It also looks like they're planning to use the drive through which will be interesting for a yogurt shop.

      3. Santa Ana one closed a few months back. Rarely saw people in there.

        1. Is it just me, or does CC already have enough yogurt places?

            Probably, but this is off the usual "beaten path" when it comes to CC, as most people think of it...

          2. It finally opened this weekend. Menchie's is better.
