Streetwise: Cherryberry to open in spring; kudos to FVTC

Some people prefer cereal on their frozen yogurt. Others prefer flavorful balls of fruit juice, known as 'bobas' in other parts of the world.

Regardless of your preference, Streetwise has learned you'll be able to cover your FroYo with whatever you want once national chain Cherryberry opens on Oshkosh's north side this spring.

Cherryberry franchise owner Jason Madsen said interior construction should begin shortly in the new retail building between Pick'n Save and Taco Bell at the corner of Jackson Street and Murdock Avenue. Cherryberry was instantly popular with the Appleton crowd when it opened last year.

The build-your-own yogurt bar is expected to open in early- to mid-April with a promotion that's sure to be popular with Oshkosh consumers: Free FroYo during a friends and family event.

"We'll have a night for anyone that's friends with us on Facebook where they can eat yogurt for free," Madsen said. "We set a record in Appleton with a line around the building for that event."

For those not familiar with the concept, Cherryberry offers you your choice of a 16-ounce or 20-ounce cup that you fill with as much or as little of the store's 14 flavors of frozen yogurt as you want.

"We've got low-fat, non-fat, non-dairy, sugar-free and others," Madsen said. "You can get whatever suits you best."

Then come the toppings.

Nuts, cereals, candies, fruits, candy bars, cookie dough bites, cake bites, brownie bites, syrups, marshmallows, marshmallow crew and the aforementioned "bobas" are just a handful of the options available.

Madsen said customers pay based on the weight of their concoction at the rate of 44 cents-per-ounce. The average cost, he said, is about $5.

? Oshkosh, you should be pros at this by now, but Winnebago County needs your help. The county's Parks Department is putting together a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan of its own and is having a public input session from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, at the Coughlin Building, 625 E. County Trunk Y. This type of plan only works if we offer input, so please stop out. Or, if you can't make it, go to www.co.winnebago.wi.us/parks and take the online survey.

? The kudos keep rolling in for Green Lake's Heidel House Resort and Spa. First, Chefs Paul Cummings and Duane Porter won Best Use of Soy in the Wisconsin Pork Association's annual Taste of Elegance contest last month. And now, we've been told Heidel House was named Best Wisconsin Lakeshore Resort in a reader poll in Wisconsin Meetings magazine. Congratulations Team HH!

? And finally, more good news and awards to pass along! Fox Valley Technical College was one of four community colleges in the nation to receive a $10,000 grant from the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship and Sam's Club to help expand FVTC's economic impact on the multi-county region it serves.

FVTC will use the grant to help create the Small Business Design, Plan and Grow Program that focuses on business plans, e-seed entrepreneurship training, networking and mentoring. Way to go FVTC!
