Mixed-Up-Cup Frozen Yogurt Concept Coming To Ooltewah This Spring

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Mixed-Up-Cup, a new frozen yogurt concept, is the latest business to join Cambridge Square in Ooltewah. Owned and operated by Ooltewah residents and husband and wife team, Jaime Jorge and Rachelle Pecovsky, Mixed-Up-Cup will be open in early summer 2014.

Cambridge Square is a mixed-use community being developed by Barrier Properties. It is at the corner of Ooltewah-Georgetown Road and Lee Highway. Mixed-Up-Cup will occupy approximately 1,500 square feet on the public square, adjacent to the recently announced Wired Coffee concept, which is currently undergoing its build-out.

“We expect a full-blown invasion of kids and families once Mixed-Up-Cup opens for business,” said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Barrier Properties. “From day one, the demand for yogurt has been consistent and eagerly anticipated. We are very happy to make this announcement and are confident that the community will be excited about this new option at Cambridge Square.”

Mixed-Up-Cup will offer a wide-array of choices appealing to both frozen yogurt and health food patrons. Included in the menu will be 14 self-serve frozen yogurt flavors including Organic &Vegan/Non-dairy options; a 50-plus item toppings bar; fresh juices and smoothies using organic and locally sourced ingredients; natural sodas and flavored iced teas; a hot cereal and yogurt parfait bar; and a hot baked potato and toppings bar.

“Fundamentally, we have a strong commitment to offering a menu that is based on fresh, clean ingredients, and delivering an experience that is healthy, relaxed and most importantly, fun,” said Ms. Pecovsky. “Our goal is not only to provide exceptional service and products, but also to become an active member in the Ooltewah community. We have built a menu that we feel caters to this market, and we will always be looking for new ways to increase our appeal to as many people as possible.”

In addition to being entrepreneurs, Mr. Jorge and Ms. Pecovsky have both had active careers in music and professional sports, respectively. Mr. Jorge currently tours internationally as a violinist, and Ms. Pecovsky recently retired from the National Women’s Football Association where she played running back for the D.C.Divas. Ms. Pecovsky also has a background in the natural health industry and as a professional personal chef, and has worked with numerous clients to create healthier menus at home.
