Salem will be getting its very own Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt at the corner of Lafayette and New Derby streets within the next three weeks.
On Monday, owner David Pierre received unanimous support from the Licensing Board, which granted him a Common Victuallers License to operate from the Lafayette Street location, which was formerly the site of West Coast Video.
When asked when he would open, Pierre told the board "we are shooting for approximately two weeks; it may be more like three. It depends on how everything goes with the contractors and everybody."
The business, which offers frozen yogurt and a self-serve toppings bar, currently has a location in Andover. In addition to Salem, other Massachusetts locations slated to "open spoon" according to the company website include: Belmont, Canton, Lexington, Marblehead, Melrose, Newburyport, Newton, Reading, Seekonk, Tewksbury, Westford and Wayland.
