Yogurt Xplosion to open on North Rock Road May 4

WICHITA — Orange Leaf Self Serve Frozen Yogurt has inspired Amber Dunn to open her own yogurt place, Yogurt Xplosion, which opens May 4 near Buffalo Wild Wings on North Rock Road.

“About a year ago, I was in Norman (Okla.), and I saw a few self-serve frozen yogurt companies and thought, hey, I want to do this,” Dunn says.

The Orange Leaf franchise wasn’t available here, but that may have been fortuitous.

“I’m super excited about how many toppings I’m going to have,” Dunn says. “It’s definitely going to be the most toppings of any place in town, I can tell you that.”

She’ll have 16 flavors of yogurt and more than 40 toppings.

“The biggest difference really is I’m going to offer cupcakes direct from the Cheesecake Factory,” Dunn says.

She’ll also have cookies and offer waffle cones for the yogurt.

“That’s kind of something a little different, too.”

Dunn’s father, former Emerson Biggin’s owner Dave Dunn, has helped some. Amber Dunn says the venture is all hers, though.

“I’m just all of 21 years old, so this is the first of many ventures, hopefully,” she says. “I see myself franchising this company out and just shooting for the stars.”
