There has been an explosion of frozen yogurt shops in the Milwaukee over the past year. While they offer different experiences in terms of atmosphere, in general, they tend to dish up similar flavors and toppings by the ounce. For our first froyo challenge, we focused on two East Side places: Yo Factory, 2203 N. Farwell Ave., and Berry Me, 1320 E. Brady St., each of which charges 45 cents an ounce.
After months and months of preparation and then waiting, Yo Factory Yogurt, 2203 N. Farwell Ave., finally opened in April. But, don't worry, you haven't missed the grand opening celebration, which takes place Saturday, June 9.

In past years, this category was dominated by frozen custard stands, but in recent years, Milwaukee has seen an explosion of new offerings like frozen yogurt, gelato and specialty ice cream shops. But custard is still the king in Milwaukee, and once again, Kopp's ran away from the field to win the title of Milwaukee's Best Frozen Treat.
Yo Factory Yogurt is coming soon to 2203 N. Farwell Ave., across the street from Ma Fischer's restaurant. The tag line claims it will offer "delicious frozen yogurt & bakery."
