Help Bring Nubi Yogurt to SF

Fro-yo girl here. Thanks Rita Y. for the news about the controversy at Lakeshore Plaza in SF. The Baskin Robbins location there is being threatened with closure. Apparently the owners want to substitute BR with a fro-yo store in order to raise the rent. Rita argues that there aren’t many BRs in SF, so it should be allowed to stay.

Some quick research yielded the identity of the prospective tenant: Nubi Yogurt. Nubi lists the Lakeshore address on its website. According to Nubi’s website, their space has the same address as Ono Hawaiian BBQ.

I’m not saying that I want BR to close but their Irving location isn’t that far away. On the other hand, there is NO self serve fro-yo in that part of SF (Parkside/Outer Sunset) and I like Nubi. I think it would do very well with so many schools close by (Lowell, SF State, etc.). Parking wouldn’t be that bad.

There are three vacant spots according to the Lakeshore Plaza website but the city only allows a certain number of food places per mall. If Nubi takes over Ono, wouldn't that be okay? Or maybe they only allow a certain number of ice cream/dessert places? I’m not sure how specific the city law is.

What can you do? The next neighborhood meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 4, at 7 PM (location: the UPS Store).
