Will Orange Leaf Still Open This October?
The Orange Leaf frozen yogurt shop planned to open in Danvers Square will not open this month as originally planned.
The Orange Leaf frozen yogurt shop that was originally planned to open this month in Danvers Square has bumped back its opening date to December.
That's according to Meredith Lynn, spokeswoman for the frozen yogurt chain.
Orange Leaf, an Oklahoma-based chain that serves fozen yogut with a topping bar that includes fruit and candy, first announced in June that it planned to open a new location at 2 High St. The retail storefront was most recently home to Anthony's Italian Deli.
Orange Leaf's first location in the region opened in Salem in June. There is also a location in downtown Andover and Marblehead. The Danvers location is one of 11 new Orange Leaf locations that has opened or is planned to open in Massachusetts this year.
When Orange Leaf opens, it won't be the first frozen yogurt shop in Danvers or the region. "FroYo," as it is known, has surged into popularity in the past year.
A sign in the window of the proposed Orange Leaf location in Danvers still says it is "Coming Spoon."
Store opening dates are subject to unexpected holdups in lease negotiation and construction, Lynn said, "but we do our best to stay on track." She did not say exactly what caused the opening date for the Danvers location to be bumped back by two months.
