The fro-yo chain has expanded with a new location on M Street.
Pinkberry has arrived in Georgetown. Though the new M Street store was to have been the first location for the L.A.-based chain in the D.C. area, it comes in at number five instead. D.C. area chain owner Stavros Roberts said when he first got the go-ahead to open stores in the region three years ago, Georgetown was his first stop.

The L.A.-based frozen yogurt chain will open at 3288 M St. Friday
Pinkberry will open in Georgetown Friday, Dec. 23, at 3288 M St. Residents and shoppers have had to wait a little longer than expected to get the L.A.-based company's famous frozen yogurt; the store had been expected to open in the fall, or so the papering on the windows suggested. The new store—the company's fifth in the D.C. area—will open in the former site of retailer, Sangaree. According to Revamp, Pinkberry will offer free cups of frozen yogurt at the store from noon until 4 p.m. Thursday as a preview to the grand opening Friday.

The Los Angeles-based company is credited with starting the tangy frozen yogurt craze in 2005.
