WICHITA — Nationally, yogurt chains like Tutti Frutti and Pinkberry are growing in popularity.
Locally, Kim Huynh hopes her Mix It Up Frozen Yogurt & Deli will quickly grow to include several sites across Wichita.
The first will open in early September at 630 E. Douglas just down from Old Mill Tasty Shop.
"Right now we're just fixing up the place," says Huynh, a software tester for LSI.

Mix It Up will offer healthy varieties of yogurt and toppings, shaved ice and coffee.
"I'm trying to make this into a lounge area as well," Huynh says.
She plans to stay open late to attract customers after clubs close.
There also will be a deli of sorts, "just in case they get hungry."
Huynh will serve Vietnamese and American sandwiches, Asian wraps, Korean sushi and spring rolls.
The menu will be limited because there isn't a full kitchen.
Next, Huynh plans to find an east-side location, and then one on the west side.
"We are hoping to expand here pretty soon."
