Nubi San Leandro Grand Opening Coverage
Fro-yo girl here. I made it to the ribbon cutting ceremony today (7/31) at Nubi San Leandro’s grand opening event. It felt like half of San Leandro was present. The DJ kept the crowd entertained with tunes. Kids received blue and orange balloons (Nubi’s signature colors). We lined up for a visit to the yogurt station (12 flavors: 5 tart, 7 sweet). The fro-yo was 50% off today (and will be 50% off all weekend, no coupon necessary, at the San Leandro location) of the regular price of 38cents an ounce.
Around 4:30 PM they brought the balloons tied to a ribbon garland outside. Someone had an enormous pair of scissors for the ribbon cutting. The mayor of San Leandro welcomed Nubi and presented Nubi with a certificate commemorating the occasion. They cut the balloon garland, releasing the balloons into the sky. The balloon artist presented the mayor with a balloon hat.
Then the lineup for the free t-shirts began and that was super slow. The shirts weren’t sorted by size and they also made everyone sign a waiver and videotaped them talking about Nubi. What a terrible idea (it took FOREVER).
The VIPs (members of the San Leandro chamber of commerce) received signature Nubi insulated totes for their fro-yo.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
