Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt Store Now Open in Pentagon City

Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt on S. Fern Street in Pentagon CityTutti Frutti, a self-serve frozen yogurt store, has opened its second Arlington location.

The new Tutti Frutti store is located in Pentagon City on the 1300 block of S. Fern Street, near the U.S. Post Office and Epic Smokehouse. The store is the second Tutti Frutti in Arlington, after a location at 2439 N. Harrison Street, in the Lee Harrison Shops.

As reported in July, the location is only a couple of blocks from a Yogiberry frozen yogurt store on Pentagon Row, but the franchise owner of Tutti Frutti isn’t very worried about the competition.

“I feel very confident in the product,” owner Geoff Trout told ARLnow.com. “I don’t think Pentagon Row is close enough.”

Tutti Frutti serves dairy- and gluten-free, soy-based frozen yogurt made with no artificial sweeteners. The stores typically have a rotating menu of flavors and 35 to 40 fruit and candy topping options.

A sign in the window says the store is “now hiring.”

    In before all the “oh no, not more froyo” comments.

  • novasteve

    I think I should open a meat flavored froyo place. Biryani Froyo, doner flavored froyo, general tso flavored froyo.

    • Captain_Obvious

      Bacon Froyo !!

      • B22201

        Is it going to be meat flavored, so the vegetarians will be happy too, or is it going to be made with real meat juices?

        • Captain_Obvious

          Real bacon, no one really likes that fake bacon crap.

        • novasteve

          Won’t be kosher either unless its poultry or fish flavored using real juices.

          • meatandmilk?

            Kosher laws fail!

        • Curious George

          Baco ™ with an assortment of cheeses and other cured meat products as toppings.

      • Viking

        SPAM froyo with SPAM, SPAM, eggs and SPAM!

    • novasteve

      Can you imagine a froyo with sichuan peppers in it? wow..

    • Thorn

      Soylent Froyo

      • Hank

        Soylent Froyo is Yuppies!

        • Sol Roth

          We’re thinking that it’s more d’bags.

  • drax

    Please, God, make it stop.

  • Profits

    I’m guessing the profit margins in froyo, pizza, burgers are insanely high and thus why there are so many. Anyone have the numbers on this?

    • Rent Expense

      I’m here to cancel out any long term viability of your business

  • Westover Leftover

    can you tell me how many yoghourt places are now in Arlington?

    • Clueless Entrepreneur

      Never enough.

    • novasteve

      Must be the highest per capita in the entire world.

  • Fro Yo King

    ArlNow should open a sister website: FroYoNow

    Check out how many Fro Yo articles have been done in the last 6 months: http://www.arlnow.com/?s=%22frozen+yogurt%22

    • Douglas Parker

      Damn, that’s a lot of yogurt. Does this mean we can call the market saturated and perhaps move onto something else?

      Like HAMBURGERS! Oh wait…

  • Hadur

    I’m pretty sure ArlNow is in on the Froyo joke now, hence every single new FroYo place is reported on here.

    Anyway, FroYo is so hot that the FroZenYo near my office in DC this summer had more information about opening a franchise displayed on its window than information about the product.

    As a Crystal City resident, I am excited for gluten-free froyo.

    • Dairy Queen

      I didn’t think any yogurt had gluten in it.

    • Crystal City Dirt

      “As a Crystal City resident, I am excited for gluten-free froyo.”

      This speaks volumes about the LACK of vibrancy in Crystal City.

      It is so unvibrant that I hear that the area is going to be asked to secede from Arlington by the county board !!

    • ARL-VA

      There’s already the FroZenYo place next to Chipotle. I wasn’t aware that they put gluten in their yogurt.

  • YTK

    Mmmm– I bet its “All a Rooty”!!!

  • Wayne Kubicki

    Rumor has it that the proposed FY14 Arlington budget will contain a new spending initiative for “affordable FroYo”.

    • acdc hack

      “contain a new spending initiative for “affordable FroYo”.

      Or the county will provide subsidies to the “FroYo challenged” residents.

  • ARL’er

    Instead of adding yet another “oh no, froyo” comment, here’s a short post about the original lyrics of the “Tutti-Frutti” song. I assume that the song was an indirect inspiration for the name of the new store. A more colorful history than they may have thought:
