The Cruel Business of Yogurt. As a frequent visitor of TCBY and lover of frozen yogurt, this news completely bummed me out.  An area TCBY, the one that kick started my obsession a few years back, put a lid on their business on Friday.

News spread on Friday that the TCBY inside Newton Plaza Latham has closed for good.  This is what they posted on their Facebook:

TCBY Latham is closed for business.

We look forward to serving you at Guilderland location. All gift cards, loyalty cards, coupons will be honored at Guilderland location.

Thank you again for your business.


Back when I worked in the Latham area, that was my TCBY and I was a frequent visitor.  It was lunch for me and I rarely changed by order.  Vanilla/Chocolate twist in a medium sized cup, almond slivers, dark chocolate chips and peanut-butter sauce.

Luckily for me, the TCBY on Western Ave (next to 5 Guys) near Stuyvesant Plaza is still open.  That's much closer to the WGNA studios and pretty much on my home from work.

But with only one left in the area, I'm jittery and worried about the overall future of the franchise.
