Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt Is Coming To Tewksbury ... But Where?

Chain expanding with several new franchises in Massachusetts.

Oklahoma-based Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt is planning to open a franchise in Tewksbury in the coming months. The only question is "where?"

The website of the rapidly growing chain (orangeleafyogurt.com) lists Tewksbury as "Coming Soon" on a list of franchise locations. However, it does not list an address. According to the website, 28 Park St. in Andover is the only Massachusetts location among the company's 144 franchises.

The company is planning to add 11 Massachusetts stores, including Tewksbury and Westford.

Orange Leaf calls itself "America's Yogurt" and "one of the most demanded brands in our industry."

Messages left with the company to discus their Tewksbury plans were not immediately returned.

Where do you think Orange Leaf should set up shop in Tewksbury?

Chris Kelly, "huge investment" is the key phrase here. This economy still stinks and no one has that kind of money or wants to take that big of a risk. We should try giving our business to the people already established here first and help them to succeed - that's the key to bringing more business and investors. If they see success stories in the area they will be more apt to bring their business to Tewksbury. And I'm not talking about Walmart.

After viewing the posts for the last few days I feel I have to make a comment. For those who are concerned that an Orange Leaf would take away business from some of the local businesses, Meadowlands and the Pushcart specifically lets be real Orange Leaf sells frozen yogurt not soups, salads and sandwiches. The Pushcart has and will remain a fixture in Tewksbury. I wish them the best but as an early poster commented there are far too many vacancies in town and this is a welcome addition. If you don't want to go there don't but ANY tax revenue coming into the town is revenue so lets embrace that. Seriously people its not a tattoo parlor its a frozen yogurt store...Why would we want the business to go to Andover when it could stay in Tewksbury. As for the folks who think it should be more centrally located and not near the Walmart Plaza (if in fact that is where its going) you may also be the same people who would complain if there is a line out the door causing traffic problems etc. Its great that there is a forum for people to voice their opinions concerns such as this but I think there are other more pressing issues in Tewksbury beyond Orange Leaf.

It is all artificial ingredients. Artificial colors. All garbage. For that money you could buy good quality frozen yogurt for home. Too bad. The cup is a bucket and the spoon is shaped like a shovel. Won't go back. Meadowlands calories are at least honest.

Orange Leaf is great but they don't deduct for the weight of the cup! So they are making a ton of extra money if you add up all those extra ounces. The cup must weigh an ounce by itself. There has to be a law against that.

Jim, they actually do deduct the weight of the cup. The register is set up on a tare to automatically deduct it.
