Frozen yogurt coming to Ooltewah

Frozen Yogurt will soon be around the corner for neighbors of Ooltewah's Cambridge Square development.

Mixed-Up-Cup is taking over a 1,500-square-foot shop in the mixed-use area, next to Wired Coffee.

"We expect a full-blown invasion of kids and families once Mixed-Up-Cup opens for business," said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Barrier Properties, which owns Cambridge Square.

Mixed-Up-Cup is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jorge and Rachelle Pecovsky.

Mixed-Up-Cup will offer 14 self-serve yogurt flavors and a 50-plus-item toppings bar. Also, the shop will offer fresh juices and smoothies made of organic and locally grown ingredients.
