Sugarplum will satisfy our sweet tooth

August 7, 2009 |

Special to The Enterprise

We now know the name of a new frozen yogurt shop coming to town. Sugarplum Frozen Yogurt plans to open at University Mall in Ritz CameraÕs old spot.

A legal ad in The Enterprise on July 31 listed the owner as KJC Enterprises LLC out of Alameda. A message left with the mallÕs management company went unanswered.


Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt is expected to open Friday, a worker said Wednesday. The store is in Oak Tree Plaza next to Nugget Market.

It features self-serve fro yo in many tart and traditional flavors, along with assorted toppings, mostly fresh fruit. The chainÕs headquarters are in Santa Fe Springs. Its Web site is

When these two yogurt shops open, it will bring to five the number stores exclusively selling the popular treat. There are three more in Davis that sell soft-serve yogurt alongside coffee, food or ice cream, and two more hard-scoop ice cream shops.


Another popular food in this college town is pizza. The newest addition is Little Caesars Pizza, which opened last month in Oak Tree Plaza, next to H20 to Go, and in oddly close proximity to CenarioÕs Pizza.

The new pizzeria is getting lots of business with its $5 grand opening special on large cheese and pepperoni pizzas.


European Wax Center will open Friday, Aug. 21, at the Roe Building at Fifth and G streets.

The center offers wax hair removal services for women and men. Its official grand opening is Saturday, Aug. 22, said Rick Kauffman, who owns the salon with his wife, Violetta. They live in West Davis.

EWCÕs address is 768 Fifth St. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays, and 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Its phone is (530) 564-4088.

An employee at Village Bakery said Thursday that it may open its new Village Pizza and Grill at Fourth and G streets in as little as two weeks.


Cafe MediterranŽe, 113 D St., has been closed for remodeling since July 1. The restaurantÕs answering machine said it hoped renovations would be complete by mid-July. It appears to be behind schedule. I left a message and will let you know if owners announce an opening date.


Heron Technologies, a Davis computer sales and support company, has moved. In June, it left its spot at Fifth Street and Pole Line Road, and moved to 1123 Olive Drive. For information, go to or call (530) 759-0134.


Jane Pinckney, a former Montessori teacher, has opened a new business called Tap Root Connections, which offers educational materials about garden-based learning and agriculture concepts for children in pre-kindergarten through early elementary school.

The business sells card activity sets to teach children about nutrition, and offers group presentations, teacher workshops and consultations.

The business, which started in early spring, is run out of her Davis home. For more information, go to or phone Pinckney at (530) 759-7018.
