Carrie Rengers: Sign says yogurt shop is coming to Derby

CherryBerry Self-Serve Yogurt Bar is coming to Derby.

At least, that's what a sign says in the window of an empty space next to GameStop at Derby Marketplace .

That's the development at 71st South and Rock Road where Target and Dillons are anchor tenants.

In the building where CherryBerry is going, there's also a Buffalo Wild Wings , Specs Eyewear and Eric Fisher Salon , among other tenants.

No one with the Oklahoma-based CherryBerry could be reached for comment.

According to the company's website, there are 12 flavors of yogurt and more than 50 toppings from which to choose.

There's no word on an opening date yet.

Sliding to home later

White Castle is celebrating its 90th anniversary this month, but it isn't celebrating in Wichita until next month.

The Wichita Eagle earlier this year reported that the Columbus, Ohio-based company wanted to celebrate its anniversary here this month by bringing mobile kitchens downtown to sell its famous sliders, which also are known as gutbombs, Whiteys and Whitey one-bites.

That's now on hold until next month when the weather is more consistently nice.

The mobile kitchens have given some hope that the Wichita-founded chain, which is the oldest burger chain in the country, may one day return here. It left in 1938.

Though the company says that's a possibility one day, a safer bet is to try and get your fix at the mobile kitchens because there's not likely to be a White Castle here anytime soon.

Jamie Richardson, a White Castle vice president, last year said the company opens about five to 10 restaurants a year. Those tend to be in cities where White Castle already operates. The closest White Castle to Wichita is in Columbia, Mo.

"I think there will come a time in our future where we'll grow into new markets," Richardson said. "And it would be kind of fun to do a boomerang voyage back to where it all started."
