YUMZ Gourmet Frozen Yogurt Coming to Palatine

Self-serve frozen yogurt franchise is set to open on May 31 in the Northwest Shopping Center at 581 E. Dundee Road, next to GameStop.

Locally-based frozen yogurt franchise, Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt, is set to open their ninth location May 31st in Palatine at 581 E Dundee Road located in the Northwest Shopping Center next to GameStop, in the space where Hallmark was formerly located.

The Palatine location is owned and operated by brother and sister duo, Kyung Kim and Sun Pych.

Kim, a single father, took his two children to the local Yumz store in Lake in the Hills one day and it quickly became a family tradition. They couldn’t get enough of the store’s fun and welcoming atmosphere, and delicious treats with endless topping options including a wide variety of fruit that Kim could feel good about serving to his family as a treat.

Having recently ended his twenty-three year tenure with Motorola, Kim set his sights on Yumz as a business venture and partnered with his sister to begin works on a multi-unit franchise operation, resulting in the opening of their first store in Palatine.

“I’m looking forward to this entrepreneurial role in the rising frozen yogurt industry and couldn’t be happier to partner with my sister to bring Palatine residents a superior product and a unique customer experience,” said Kim. “We look forward to seeing our operation grow throughout the western suburbs and North Shore and hope local residents fall in love with Yumz Gourmet Frozen Yogurt, just like we did.”

Yumz offers a rotating selection of more than 50 flavors in varieties including tart—for the frozen yogurt purist, regular—tastes sweet like ice cream, no sugar added—for the extra health conscious and sorbet – for those interested in dairy-free products. Along with a toppings bar consisting of more than 75 options, including fruits, nuts, sauces and dry toppings, the combinations are endless and there’s certainly something for everyone!

The Palatine store hours of operation will be from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The store will feature free Wi-Fi and both indoor and outdoor seating. For more information, visit www.yumzfrozenyogurt.com, like Yumz on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.
