Icebee Closes San Francisco Location

Fro-yo girl here. Icebee opened its first location in February 2008 at 829 Mission St. San Francisco, CA 94103. It was self-serve, the first self-serve froyo shop in SF. The location was convenient for mall shoppers. It survived over 6 years which isn’t too shabby because the yogurt wasn’t that good. I always found their frozen yogurt to be icy so I probably went there two or three times total. Icebee closed in late November 2014.

Yogen Fruz San Francisco, which also opened in 2008, also closed this year. The Embarcadero location was the first Yogen Fruz location in the Bay Area. Tuttimelon closed its Chestnut St. Marina location this year and also the relocated Irving St. shop (Irving St. was their first location), both locations opened in 2008.

2008 was the beginning of the froyo boom in the Bay Area.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
