CUPS Frozen Yogurt Closes Its Doors

It leaves an empty space in the Village at Commons.

Not even a year after opening its doors with a grand opening party in the Village at Commons, CUPS Frozen Yogurt officially closed its doors Jan. 20.

The shop was all about self-serve frozen yogurt with different flavors and a complete toppings bar.

Tom Beyer, with CUPS, said it was only this location that closed down.

"While it's always a tough business decision to close any location, it is not reflective of the brand, which is growing and prosperous overall," he said.

Beyer declined to say why this location closed down.

There are still many other CUPS locations around the state, including one in East Brunswick.

But this also leaves an empty space in the Village at Commons, near Chipotle and the Starbucks.

So, what do you think should take its place?

And what are your thoughts on the shop closing so soon?

Not for nothing, but I didn't even notice the place was there.

A candy store:)

I never knew it was there either.

I think some other kind of quick food place should go there or even move origins there and have Starbucks knock down the wall to origins and take over the space this way Starbucks will have more seating. You can never find a seat in the space now.

Better location might be to move to the Somerset Hills Shopping Center off Rt206 in Bedminster after it's renovated. It may offer more traffic and visibility.

Yes, Nancy, YES!! A candy store would be GREAT!!! There are too few anymore, even the ones in the malls are disappearing.

Oh god, not another "what do we put at the mall" question!!

I never went--I am rarely at that mall--but I always hated the wink-wink logo & name. Am I the only one who found it sexist to have a yogurt shop with an image clearly designed to evoke women's breasts, along with the "that's hot" part of the tagline? Gratutous and offensive.

Something with more class should go in it's place - mostlikley somewhere else to eat. It's ridiculous to think that a place like that would ever do well in that area.
