Peachwave, a new frozen yogurt shop, held a grand opening and ribbon cutting on Thursday for its Mount Kisco location.
Located at 37 S. Moger Ave. and adjacent to Shopper's Park, Peachwave occupies the former storefront of Edward Jones and has extensively remodeled the interior, replacing the old setup with a colorful seating and service area.
Mayor Michael Cindrich described it as “another corporation investing in our community.”
“We got to patronize the business," he said, noting that its location will be good for the sales days, which are coming up in about a week.
Peachwave has 77 locations both in the United States and abroad, according to its website. It also licenses out locations, according to Gregg Roberts, who is president for the licensee that has territory in Westchester County and southern Fairfield County, CT.
Roberts said he's “really happy to be here.” He noted that so far the reception has been “really positive."
Roberts sees Peachwave differentiating itself with its decor and customer service and touts the quality of the product.
Kevin Kane, president of the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce, was glad to have another business open locally. He also likes the change to the building that was done.
County Legislator Peter Harckham, whose district includes Mount Kisco, felt it is an investment in the community and in jobs.
The Mount Kisco site is one of several for the region. Peachwave, according to Roberts, will also be in Armonk, Mohegan Lake and Hartsdale.
Peachwave also announced that its grand opening celebration will go on until Sept. 15.
