Sept. 14, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Quite a few changes with frozen dairy treats in the West Bend area over the past few months/years.
Remember when West Bend had two Dairy Queens? Those stores closed in 2014.
Then a couple weeks ago the Moehr family transitioned Toucan Custard to new owners and now Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is closing.
The note was posted on the door of the store today, 1733 S. Main Street in West Bend.
Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt and its predecessor have had a tough go of it in West Bend. Cherry Berry Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt opened in West Bend in February 2013. That switched over to Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt in January 2015 and now Menchie’s is closing up shop.
This afternoon Shannon Lehnerz and Brooke Tilidetzke were the only customers in the store. They were both a little bummed the store would be closing. “We’ve been coming here since it was Cherry Berry,” said Lehnerz. “It’s sad.”
