How does it compare to self-serve ‘froyo’ chains like Orange Leaf? Let us know by posting a comment below.
Frozland, Arlington’s first self-serve “froyo” establishment, opened earlier this week at 882B Mass. Ave., diagonally across from Arlington High School. And now that it’s open, we want to know your take. How is the frozen yogurt? How is the selection of flavors and toppings? How does it compare to other froyo spots like Orange Leaf and Fruitee Yogurt in Lexington, Swizzles in Winchester and again Orange Leaf and iYo Cafe in Somerville’s Davis Square? And how does it stack up against local places like The Chilly Cow and Brigham’s? In case you’ve forgotten, another frozen-yogurt spot, Yummy’s, is coming to town, at 474 Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center, the former home of Something Extra.

You asked; we've got your answer.
If you’ve gone past Frozland recently, surely you’ve noticed all of the progress. The bright orange awning and inflatable penguins in the window are hard to miss. It actually looks open, but when will it? Frozland’s owner, Sobhy Ibrahim, said Thursday that he’s just waiting on the final town inspection, which should take place early next week. He said he plans to open right after that, so middle to end of next week. Frozland, at 882B Mass. Ave., diagonally across from Arlington High School, will be Arlington’s first “froyo” spot, but another one, Yummy’s, has been approved for 474 Mass. Ave. in the center, the former home of Something Extra, a women’s boutique. Frozland has developed a website since we last reported on it, with flavors and…

Self-serve frozen yogurt in Arlington took one step closer to becoming a reality Monday.
The Board of Selectmen unanimously approved Monday a common victualler, or operating, license for “Frozland Frozen Yogurt,” the new self-serve “froyo” shop planned for 882B Mass. Ave. The shop is being proposed by Sobhy I. Ibrahim. He told the board Monday he’s looking forward to working hard to create a successful business in Arlington. “Arlington is one of my favorite towns,” he said.
