“Living in New York and seeing first-hand the popularity of self-serve frozen yogurt shops, I saw an opportunity in New England to fill this void," Kessner told the Times. "I have chosen specific towns within Southern Connecticut and the Boston, Massachusetts regions which offer spectacular communities filled with young families. Everyone loves it.
"My goal with Swizzles was to offer a place where families can come and truly have an enjoyable and delicious experience."
The and at the start of business there were already 30 customers waiting in line.
"There was a line literally around the corner waiting to get in on our first day and the craziness has not stopped," Kessner told the News Times. "Every time I check the Winchester shop cameras remotely from my Darien, CT office, there are still mobs of people in the shop, 40 days later in the dead of winter. Sometimes it appears that there are nearly 100 kids in the shop when school lets out at 2:30 p.m. In only 40 days, we have had 20,000 customers enter our shop who have enjoyed the Swizzles Experience.”
