CHARLOTTE, NC (WECT) – A locally owned frozen yogurt franchise is headed to Charlotte to become part of the new minor league baseball stadium.
The Fuzzy Peach, which has already opened 40 stores across 8 states, is partnering with the Charlotte Knights to open its newest location at the BB&T Ballpark in uptown Charlotte. The store will be open to the public not only during games, but also throughout the year.
The Fuzzy Peach's Co Founder, Jason Nista, spoke with excitement over the new opportunity, "The Fuzzy Peach is thrilled to work with the Charlotte Knights as they begin a new chapter in their storied history in Uptown Charlotte," Nista said. "The Knights choosing to partner with The Fuzzy Peach shows their commitment to working with and supporting other local, North Carolina based companies. The Charlotte Knights and BB&T Ballpark are setting the example for what a professional sports team can mean to a local community and economy."
The Fuzzy Peach will be located behind the right field area of BB&T Ballpark. Fans will be able to access the store year-round from both inside and outside of the ballpark from a street side entrance.
The first game will be played April 11 of this year.
