New-in-town frozen yogurt and cookie store opens first La. location.

Pizitz Management Group, the largest Great American Cookies franchisee and owner of 32 Degrees, a self-serve frozen yogurt bar, has announced the opening of its first combination store location in the state of Louisiana in Gonzales. To celebrate its arrival into Gonzales, they hosted a grand opening fundraising event offering customers special deals and fun events on May 29th.

"We are thrilled to be opening our first dual-concept store in Louisiana in the Gonzales community," said Jenny Buha, Director of Development and Marketing for Pizitz Management Group. "We want to come into the market with a bang and give customers a taste of what we are all about."

"Our store will offer freshly baked treats to include cookies, cookie cakes and brownies as well as a full frozen yogurt bar with 8 flavors of yogurt and over 50 toppings and sauces. We have also brought our Twister machine to our Gonzales store," continued Mrs. Buha. "The Twister allows customers to create their own frozen, blended treat. We use our special Twister cup and fill it up with whatever yogurt and toppings they would like. Then, they bring it to the counter where a sales associate twists it up for them. There is no additional charge for a Twister – just a cool way to enjoy our delicious yogurt and toppings!"

Birthdays, holidays and special events are a big part of both 32 Degrees and Great American Cookies. "We are excited to celebrate with our customers at our new location. In addition to our signature, custom-decorated Cookie Cakes, customers and their guests will also have the option to create-their- own delicious treats with our self-serve frozen yogurt bar," continued Mrs. Buha.
