MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 20, 2015 /CNW/ - Pinkberry, the world famous frozen yogurt brand which originated in Los Angeles, California and known for its fresh, pure and supremely tasty frozen yogurt, variety of toppings, and adored by celebrities; opens today at Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, in partnership with the Maida family of Northern Cultures Inc. The Pinkberry location at Square One Shopping Centre marks the arrival of the first Pinkberry store in Ontario, with future GTA locations on the horizon.

"We are excited to arrive in Mississauga, and the province of Ontario," said Ron Graves, CEO of Pinkberry. "We are happy to serve and become a local favorite of the sophisticated community in Mississauga, in partnership with the Maida family, who shares our values and commitment on exceeding customer expectations day in and day out".

"We invite local residents to the grand opening of Pinkberry at Square One today. We will be hosting a grand opening celebration featuring a live performance and meet-and-greet with Canadian recording artist Karl Wolf. There will be free Pinkberry with toppings for everyone that registers on Eventbrite or Facebook. We are genuinely excited about serving Mississauga and surrounding areas with light, refreshing and craveable frozen yogurt like no other. The Greater Toronto Area has waited long enough for Pinkberry and we are finally here and excited to deliver a premium product and experience in the frozen yogurt category" says Matthew Maida, Director of Operations for Pinkberry Toronto.

Pinkberry is committed to uncompromising quality and its premium frozen yogurt is made fresh daily with only the highest quality ingredients including nonfat milk and nonfat yogurt to deliver the perfect balance of tart and sweet, resulting in a refreshing, light and craveable taste with a clean finish.   Each flavour is expertly crafted to complement fresh seasonal fruit that is cut in-store every single day – never frozen, in syrup or canned, and the 30+ toppings are each thoughtfully selected as perfect yogurt pairings. Service is also paramount at Pinkberry. Team members are carefully selected and trained to offer the most delightful customer experience with a full-serve model that encourages customization based on unique flavour-pairings.

The Pinkberry Square One location will be serving Pinkberry's six distinctive flavours: the signature Original flavour, a sweet and tart yogurt with a refreshing finish; Pomegranate, a bold and tangy flavour made with 100 percent California-grown pure pomegranate juice; Chocolate Hazelnut, a creamy, delightful chocolate with a hint of sweet hazelnut; Dairy-Free Tropical Mango, a fruity and light flavour made with fresh mango juice and no added sugar; Green Tea, slightly sweet yet light with earthy flavour notes and Salted Caramel, indulgent, delicious and complex. It perfectly combines sweet and salty to deliver a one-of-a-kind taste experience that leaves one sweet on salt.

Customers can personalize every yogurt experience at Pinkberry with any combination of delicious toppings.  At Pinkberry, uncompromising quality is a number one priority and the toppings bar is no exception.  Each topping is selected with the highest quality standards, whether it's fresh fruit that is hand-cut daily in-store, wholesome granola, gourmet baked goods and cookies, toasted nuts, 100% pure pomegranate juice, or rich, premium milk chocolate crunch imported from Italy to name a few.

With a passion to help people discover new ways to enjoy yogurt in their daily routines, Pinkberry assists every customer in pairing yogurt with the perfect toppings, creating delicious parfaits to kick start their day or blending them into smoothies to enjoy on-the-go.  Pinkberry's passion for yogurt delivers distinctive yogurt taste served with gratitude in an inspiring store design to create a one-of-a-kind experience that delights on every visit.
