    The interior looks like the set of a 1980s sci-fi movie. And when it comes to frozen yogurt stores one's enough.

    This is great! If one of everything was enough, we could essentially cut every second pizzeria, Thai restaurant, Chinese takeout, and Mexican restaurant. I think moving away from the 99 cent store market into the small business world is exactly what we need.

    Welcome 4 Squared Flavors!

    Yogurt berry is actually awful: watery and tasteless, so I'm hoping this place will be much better.i actually go to Astoria for frozen yogurt so maybe this will bring my business back to sunnyside if the quality is good.

  7. Wrong Time of Year?

    Who thought opening a froyo place in January was a good idea? This should've been open back in June. Now they're gonna have months of eh sales before it warms back up.

    They should seriously hire some good consultants. Before opening another store, construction took long because the "contractors are perfectionist" what a lame excuse, also what a public image fail every other month they are about to open, only signs and floors left? Looks like more than a month.

    I really hope they figure out what they are doing because it is clear they lack a lot of know how

    These guys don't exactly look like ice cream enthusiasts. Looks like they're gonna opt for the cheapest powdered "yogurt" mix.

    RI The community board has no control over the private sector, except for reviewing liquor license applications and giving its recommendations to the State Liquor Authority. People can buy and sell or start businesses as they wish. It's up to the entrepreneur to determine if there is a opportunity for a business. Unfortunately, some guess wrong and lose money. I wish Four Squared every success. They have obviously invested a lot of money in our community.

    Thank God, "The community board has no control over the private sector," otherwise we'd be living under sharia law in some hellhole. It makes me laugh out loud when people discuss the idea of controlling what businesses open in a neighborhood! Aside from strip clubs and bars, you can open whatever you want wherever you can in this country as long as you can pay the rent.
    Supply and demand. If the products no good, or there's no demand, it'll close. If not, it'll thrive. Best of luck to all the small business people in our neighborhood.

    Good afternoon everyone. I am the president of the company and my name is Khalil Nayl. I am glad this post came up to see the response of the people in our community. Some post were motivating and happy to see; Thank you for that. However, I saw a few concerns from some people. I would like to address them. Our company mission was to come into this "business improvement district" and support SunnySide Shines on improving our district. Our goal was to bring something "spectacular" to the neighborhood where people don't just enjoy their yogurt, but can come in and enjoy their cozy environment. That is why we have invested a lot into our lounge area that not only provides free WiFi, but also the iPads that will be installed on our tables to make it more convenient. We came into this neighborhood hoping the community will support us so we can give back the support. We have been volunteering with SunnySide Shines to bring more excitement into our community. However, we have to stick together and help each other to attract bigger companies to stop by and invest with us. Furthermore, our company will be using the best brand on the market for yogurt and not powdered yogurt -->(SunnySider).
    We had one of the best designers to make sure every corner of the space was designed so people can come in and say "WoW''. In the picture you cannot really see how the store looks. We are hoping every SunnySider comes in and try us out at least one time. We are confident you will be back again. Our goal was to build a castle in our loved neighborhood. Even though it will be done in the winter, we will be early for the summer. I told the writer that we are hoping for this space to be open in a month. However, there is no control over the contractors and how slow or fast they move. We have tried many different designs and took it down to make it perfect. We should all stick together to bring bigger companies into our district.
    I have attached my email if anyone has any concerns. Feel free to contact me and i will try my best to get answers for you. If you have any other concerns or advice please let us know.
    Thank You Kindly

    One of the very few times that I agree with Ruben aka SSPHM14 about the 'plants', from Jerry to Flavoristic. It's obvious it's the same person...

    Khalil - I wish you luck, but as one of the few people on this forum who grew up in Sunnyside and can attest to the turnover in stores, you should have picked a location on the north side of the boulevard...

    I disagree. Yes, fancier stores tend to do better on the north side, but for this type of business where the product isn't expensive, there's a lot more foot traffic on Greenpoint Ave. Lots of kids in the area too. And not far from the park.

    The south side, especially Greenpoint Avenue, is depressing. I go there for Hallmark or Bliss Street Station restaurant only.

    Yogurtberry isn't good. I agree with the comment that said it was watery and tasteless. Their yogurt doesn't even taste like a dairy product. If the new yogurt shop has good quality yogurt and a comfortable atmosphere, I will go there.

    Mr Nayl, i got a lot of respect for you stepping in and saying what you did. i will be there w my kids! Good luck. yeah, Greenpoint ave has always been tough for business but your place looks very cool - wifi + ipads at the table sound cool

    The winter time selling frozen yogurt - yeah i understand the comments here. theres a cool documentary on netflix about how ben and jerrys faced the same challenges up in freezing vermont when they started. But they came up with cool events and gatherings to keep people interested and coming back and it kind of defined their brand
