Swirls and Twirls is bringing its self-serve frozen yogurt to the area in February.
The grand opening of Swirls and Twirls seventh location will be held at 3185 Long Beach Road in Oceanside on Feb. 2 from 8 a.m. until midnight.
The grand opening celebration will include all-day music, games, giveaways, face painting, balloon sculptures and free frozen yogurt (up to 10 ounces per person; thereafter 49 cents/ounce) served between noon and 8 p.m. There will also be contests to win an iPad and free yogurt for a year.
The Oceanside location -- in the Nathan's shopping center -- debuts Swirls and Twirls new all day breakfast bar, which offers assorted healthy breakfast items such as muffins, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and cereals, as well as the new Swirls to Go yogurt line. Coffee, tea and an assortment of cold beverages are also available.
“Based on the numerous suggestions for the availability of healthy breakfast items from patrons at our other six locations, we decided to implement this option at our new Oceanside shop," said co-owner Joe Sala, a member of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce.
Based on feedback and sales of Swirls and Twirls breakfast bar, Sala says this feature will eventually be phased into other shops.
In addition to Oceanside, Swirls and Twirls locations include Massapequa Park, West Islip, Patchogue, Nesconset, Levittown and Greenlawn. Soon to open in 2013 are shops in West Babylon, Centereach, Port Jefferson Station and a second location in Massapequa through the recent availability of Swirls and Twirls franchise opportunities.
Oceanside shop hours are Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. – 10:30 p.m., Friday- Saturday 8 a.m. – midnight, and Sunday 10 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. For more information, call 516.442.7313 or visit www.swirlsandtwirlsusa.com and www.facebook.com/swirlsandtwirls.
