The only thing that’s holding up the expansion is the in-stallation of the custom-made granite counter tops to match the existing counter tops in the store.
An eight-foot extension to an existing counter was devel-oped to serve as the coffee bar area.
Alex’s Froyo, in the Armuchee Village shopping center, will offer a full line of espresso-based beverages; cappuccino, mocha, latte and macchiato drinks will be available during regular business hours.
The yogurt show offers 16 different brands of self serve yo-gurts with more than 40 toppings.
Vick said that Alex’s Froyo instituted a special 10 percent program to return some of the proceeds of sales from the store to the community. Thus far, more $1,200 has been given back to 15 different schools in the community with Armuchee Elementary the leader, netting $273.31 from people who have enjoyed the yogurt at Alex’s Froyo.
