My Town: Former office space transformed into sweet treat escape | Business
GRAND HAVEN, Mich.—The Pump House is celebrating the opening of its second frozen yogurt bar in downtown Grand Haven.
The new shop celebrated its soft (and tasty) opening June 6 inside the facility that formally housed Wirick Office Products, at 20 North Harbor Drive. Construction crews spent several months renovating the 3,300 square foot space, creating a vintage beach shack atmosphere that complements the community. The new yogurt bar features reclaimed wood, a toppings bar resembling a boat and Adirondack chairs and swings lining the facility’s windows. The menu includes more than 100 toppings and 14 yogurt pumping stations.
The new Pump House is expected to eventually grow to include 18 part-time employees. Owner Karen Avery also hopes to phase in a vintage photo booth, a soda fountain made in Grand Haven and an outdoor seating area. She also hopes to expand the menu later this summer, adding soups, sandwiches and other baked treats.
The Pump House opened its first yogurt bar across from Celebration Cinema North, at 2090 Celebration Dr. NE Suite 120 in October 2012.
