New Look!

Just wanted to say that you're in the right spot, but GROUNDWIRE has gotten a facelift.

Can't say enough what a beautiful job Staci from Blogging Bella Designs did.

Blogging Bella Designs

Her prices were very affordable and she was really patient while I nitpicked all sorts of small details.

Ah... there's something nice about knowing no one else has the exact same template anymore.

The sidebar pages will be updated eventually. (Would love to say by the end of the month, but realistically, it'll be later rather than sooner.) 

 Thanks for stopping by!

Crack Batter

It's now our third month of business and things are steady but just barely.

I'm now at the point where I can guess the weight of most yogurts within 50 cents of the total price just by sight.

Our top five toppings are:

Diced strawberries, Crushed Reese's peanut butter cups, popping bobas, sour worms, and marshmallow sauce.

However, the one thing that will bring our store to a screeching halt should we run out ... is the Cake Batter yogurt.
I don't know what YoCream is secretly putting in it, but people will get NASTY when we're out.

On Sunday a mini storm rolled through and brought down a tree on the power lines in the back of the shopping complex. Everyone in the center was out of power for over 5 hours and we ended up throwing out some of our product due to spoilage concerns.

So in the 2 hours we were out of Cake Batter while waiting for the product to thaw after we removed it from the freezer... 

-we had a half dozen people walk out and say they were going to drive 20 miles to our competitor
-a dozen decided they just weren't going to get any yogurt
-one person threw their half-filled cup on the floor and just walked out
-one person swore at my employee and threatened to leave her friend at the store (since she was driving) if he still got a yogurt when she couldn't get any because we were out of her flavor.

And that is why I am officially renaming this flavor to "Crack Batter".
