San Jose mayor Chuck Reed was on hand as well as Councilmember Pete Constant for the ribbon cutting ceremony. Mayor Reed gushed about how much he enjoys frozen yogurt.

Some aspects of the environmentally friendly yogurt shop were highlighted. The signage is run on solar power, and the cooling system saves 3 gallons of water per minute compared to conventional frozen yogurt cooling systems.

Green Cup participated in the San Jose Redevelopment Agency’s retail and recruitment program and sign grant program. The sign, designed by the owners, is the first solar-powered sign fabricated and installed with Redevelopment Agency assistance.

Green Cup Frozen Yogurt is located in the First Century Plaza at 747 South Winchester Boulevard.

Green Cup Yogurt Now Open

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Green Cup Yogurt has had it’s “soft” opening at the First Century Plaza at 747 South Winchester Boulevard.

The “Green” in the shop’s name refers to its efforts to be environmentally friendly. The cups and spoons are all biodegradable, air cooled yogurt machines instead of water cooled, VOC-free paint used throughout the store, and they use real yogurt made from 100% all natural ingredients.

The store works like most new yogurt shops. Customers dish out as much of their desired yogurt flavour as they want into a cup, choose from a dozen “dry” toppings such as almonds and chocolate chips, and then choose from a dozen “wet” toppings such as fresh fruit.

Coming soon will be teas and smoothies.

Green Cup offers casual seating in a bright clean environment.

The interior of the building appears that the business could be a couple weeks away from opening. It is unclear how long the location has been in this condition. An attempt to contact the owners using a phone number listed for the business resulted in a recording that the number had been disconnected.
