Open for just a few months, Yummy’s Yogurt, Maria’s San Antonio-based frozen yogurt store, has been a hit with customers. Her attention to detail, her customers and to her product is second to none. Maria plans to sell delicious gourmet yogurts, smoothies and fresh handcrafted sandwiches. Maria employs two people and plans to use her loan to buy new equipment, increase her inventory and help with marketing within the community.
Yummy’s Yogurt has a built-in customer base by being located on one of the busiest streets in San Antonio and in close proximity to other popular retail and dining locations. She is also adjacent to a large area high school and in close proximity to one of San Antonio’s largest high-tech employers.
