Sweet Frog, the Downtown self-serve frozen yogurt bar with 28 stores in Virginia and North Carolina (and plans to expand to Maryland, Tennessee, Louisiana and South Carolina), is growing faster than a tadpole. In our little pond, it’s jumping uptown to a second location in the old Maggie Moo’s space in Hollymead, and a third spot in Barracks Road Shopping Center is in the works. There’s a dish of sweet success—complete with toppings.
Hollymead will also be the local home for another rapidly growing chain—Which Wich Superior Sandwiches. Offering more than 50 varieties of customizable “wiches” (along with signature house chips, hand-dipped shakes and just-out-of-the-oven cookies), customers get to specify their size, bread, cheese, spread and veggies by marking up the pre-printed brown bag with a red Sharpie. Oh, the possibilities!
