International Frozen Yogurt Brand to Launch its Second Brooklyn Location in DUMBO this Fall
(Brooklyn, NY) –Further bolstering DUMBO’s budding roster of eateries, Two Trees Management Company is bringing frozen yogurt titan Pinkberry to the heart of Brooklyn’s bustling waterfront community, company officials announced today.
Opening this October, Pinkberry will be DUMBO’s first frozen yogurt shop, adding to the neighborhood’s growing track record of being a top-tier destination for business. The 1,000 square foot location will be located in the 55 Washington Street building at 117 Front Street, serving up fresh frozen yogurt for their new neighbors, including Etsy and Wireless Generation; both of which also call 55 Washington home.
“From tech to frozen yogurt, Two Trees has always prided itself on being a company dedicated to the growth of unique companies in New York City,” said Caroline Pardo, Managing Director for Two Trees Management Company. “DUMBO’s creative atmosphere makes Pinkberry an ideal fit and we look forward to its contribution to our thriving community.”
Pinkberry opened its first store in West Hollywood in January 2005, and today operates more than 170 stores throughout North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. This will be Pinkberry’s second foray into Brooklyn, joining a Park Slope location that opened its doors this past summer.
