New Kamloops frozen yogurt and cheesecake shop makes sweet, soft opening
A new frozen yogurt shop is taking shape at the old Menchies location in Sahali and it’s offering much more than yogurt for residents with a sweet tooth.
Sweet Street is open for business while final renovations and branding are in the works and new freezers are en route.
“We are letting people find out about us slowly while we finish setting up,” said owner Nicole Pitcher.
The frozen yogurt shop is offering many flavours of yogurt and lots of toppings, along with a cheesecake bar, a vintage candy display with classic favourites like Fun Dips, Pop Rocks and nerd ropes, and hard ice cream all year round.
The colour scheme is bold and bright.
“Everything we’re doing is just fun to make you feel like you’re inside of a candy,” Pitcher said. “We have neat candy-related things like a machine that makes pucker powder sticks and toys that have candy in them. We want to add fun things and listen to people with what they are wanting.”
Sweet Street opened in the first week of March and will soon be putting together social media pages and marketing.

Pitcher said she is busy and having fun, and so far customer feedback has been positive.
Pitcher ran a restaurant in Alberta before moving to Kamloops in B.C. in 2013.
She operated the former Menchies franchise at the same Sahali location but could not comment on the closure as she does not represent the company.
Located at 5A 1200 Summit Drive Sweet Street is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 7 days per week and will be extending hours as the weather warms up.
