There’s froyo on campus, there’s froyo uptown, and there’s froyo downtown. Froyo fans on the west side of Fayetteville, however, have been out of luck.

That has changed with the opening of Too Cool, a new frozen yogurt shop located at 1155 N. Tahoe Pl., just off Wedington Drive in Fayetteville (in the back of the Hunan Manor building).

The business is owned by Kevin Mitchell, who opened the shop after deciding that a career change was the best way to deal with recent changes in the job market related to his area of expertise.

“I was an unemployed engineer, working part time jobs, and I just decided I needed to open my business or watch my money go away,” Mitchell said. “All the engineering jobs are going overseas these days.”

Mitchell said he talked to friends who went into the frozen yogurt business in another market, and decided it was time to try his hand in the frozen treat business.

The new self-serve shop features 15 flavors rotating through five available machines, with around 30 toppings to choose from. The space features a unique decor, with 50’s style chrome tables, and a topping station fashioned from the hood of a 1965 Mustang.

Too Cool is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
