Whatever day it is, Beach Berry is open.
The frozen yogurt shop opened June 11 as the first non-baseball-related business at the Maritime Park. It occupies the stadium’s western retail spot, to the right of the main gates.
The shop operates on a self-serve basis. When customers arrive, they take an empty cup and can choose between fourteen to sixteen flavors of frozen yogurt on any given day. Then come the toppings. With over 150 to choose from, there’s something for everyone — fresh fruit, sprinkles, candy bar pieces, nuts, cereal, and sauces.
“Obviously, the kids, they love it,” said owner Michael Ngo. “They get to choose whatever they want.”
Ngo’s own children were helping him behind the counter. He said that Beach Berry will cater to birthday parties and other youth events. Church groups receive a 20% discount for their parties.
While the Blue Wahoos games have been great for business, visitors can enjoy the park — and Beach Berry — on other days as well.
“The hardest part is that people have the conception that we’re only here during game time,” Ngo said. “We want to push it so that people know it’s always here. We’re open all the time.”
Beach Berry is open 11-9 on Monday through Thursday, 11-10 Friday and Saturday, and 11-8 Sunday. Later hours are observed on game nights. For more information, call 710-3067 or visit their Facebook page.
