Dear PoPville,

Maybe it’s because the customer service got so many complaints or there were too many kids hanging out/chatting with the staff….

Also note “Sorry for the convenience” – that’s awesome.

DC USA on Irving Street, NW between Panera and Panda Express

    I don’t know, I like the “difficuties” typo even more.

  • Phil

    I also enjoy the Diffi-cuties

    The Dupont location was closed yesterday. No explanation. A couple weeks ago they were shut down for A/C problems.

  • “Closed Temporarly
    Operational Difficuties
    Sorry for the Convience”
    I hope they fire all of them and re-boot that store, actually go away I like Fro-Zen-Yo better.
    The yogurt wasn’t that good to have to deal with all the ‘difficuties’!

      I have it on excellent authority that Fro.Zen.Yo uses really, really cheap product…

    I wonder if it had to do with the plumbing problems in the building. They were closed the same day WSC has signs posted that the bathrooms weren’t working due to building plumbing issues.

    I went here a week or so after it opened, and it was absolutely horrible. Only two frozen yogurt flavors were labeled- traditional, and I think maybe peanut butter. The other machines were missing signs noting the flavor (maybe they didn’t work??). So we picked up our elephant-sized buckets and filled them 1/4 full with watery traditional and peanut butter froyo. Yes, the only containers they provide are about as big as your face. Legend has it that you can get cups suitable for normal-sized individuals by flagging down the idiots working there and asking them. Te service was absolutely terrible, even for DC. After waiting in the empty store for someone to lumber over so we could check put (crappy froyo melting in our pig trough buckets), we then waited a few additional minutes while the employee’s friends came in to chat. $12 later we left.

    We will never go back.

  • Tasti D Lite is a horrible company with a horrible product. Anyone who opens a store must be a total idiot. It was a great product until the origiinal owner sold it about 5 years ago to creepy crooks for $20,000,000. I owned a store. The product reicipie changed and the new owner (Jim Amos and investers) started sticking it to us like the mafia. I was lucky to get away with my shirt. Plus, never eat where there are so many problems staying open unless you want food poisoning.
