Nubi Yogurt Closes Last Bay Area Locations

Fro-yo girl here. Nubi Yogurt started in SoCal with a location in Apple Valley, CA (San Bernardino County) that opened in February 2008. Their first Bay Area location opened in Millbrae in June 2008. At one point, Nubi Yogurt had 6 locations in the Bay Area, including:

  • Millbrae 
  • San Mateo 
  • San Francisco (West Portal) 
  • San Francisco (Mission) 
  • San Leandro 
  • San Jose 

The last two locations to close were Millbrae and San Francisco (16th St., Mission). The Nubi Yogurt owners also own Ono Hawaiian BBQ which now has 73 locations. Back in the good old days, I could get lunch at Ono on Sloat and the receipt included a coupon for Nubi, which was located in the same shopping center. Nubi receipts sometimes had Ono coupons. Nubi Millbrae always seemed to be busy.

There was never a Ono/Nubi combined location, to my knowledge, even though Ono should at least serve Dole Whip? I heard from a Nubi employee that the yogurt business just wasn’t as profitable, so the owners were focused on growing Ono. I quite liked their Original Tart flavor.

Nubi Yogurt still has locations in Apple Valley, Redlands, and Moreno Valley, CA.

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