A new Bellingham Menchie’s frozen yogurt shop is marking its grand opening with a weeklong celebration until Friday, July 5.
The new shop opened on Saturday, June 22, at 1301 Bakerview Road.
It is the second Menchie’s location opened by Robert Penney and Dayna Penney, a Bellingham married couple. The Penneys opened a Menchie’s in April 2012 in Bellingham’s Lakeway Center shopping area at 1070 Lakeway Drive.
The opening celebration for the Bakerview shop, which began on June 29, includes free giveaways of T-shirts and other Menchie’s merchandise, family-friendly activities and free servings of frozen yogurt.
Menchie’s, which has more than 300 locations in the U.S. and worldwide, has been among the fastest-growing franchises in the restaurant industry over the past several years. The company says it expects to open 400 additional stores in 2013.
Menchie’s stores are known for their self-serve stations and rotating variety of yogurt flavors and toppings. The chain’s frozen yogurt is made through its own private label.
