    Alright, to sound totally ridiculous – when the weather gets warm, I may have to try this place. Not exactly convenient for me but I gotta try out a place called “Bloo Moo.” I know, it says nothing of the quality of this place.

    OK DC… I think we have enough yogurt spots now… Its like everyone who was thinking about making a cupcake shop last year has now jumped on the FroYo wagon… Its not like coffee, people don’t want it all the time. In the 80s there was a huge yogurt push once TCBY claimed a market share and it led to a massive failure that made everyone not crave yogurt for years. Please, stop the frozen yogurt spot permits before its too late and come up with a more original business plan…

    If they actually want customers from American University they need to take EagleBucks (campus cash).

    Too much effort to get to that location just for froyo. I don’t think there will be enough pedestrian traffic to make this place successful.

      i’d bet with the amount of traffic on wisc. AU and the nearby public schools, and the fact that lots of kids live in the area, it’ll do fine.

        That’s what the previous tenant, a Marvelous Market franchise, thought as well before it opened for business, starting losing cash the first month of operation, and never recovered. Although granted, the MM’s owner was a grump and anything you could buy there was also available across the street at Whole Foods.

        Speaking of frozen yogurt, give Robek’s a shot. They swirl the fruit into the yogurt using this funky machine.

          are you privy to special knowledge about the specific reason that MM closed?

        • Denizen of Tenallytown

          MM closed because they weren’t doing enough business. They weren’t doing enough business because everything they sold – coffee, pastries, sandwiches, breads, and other perishables – could be purchased from the Whole Foods across the street. The Panera opening right next to the Metro was the final nail in the coffin.
