After five years in Piccadilly Square at Central and Rock Road, Trish Jasnoski is moving her Fresh Fruit Bouquet Co. to College Hill Plaza.
That’s the 14,000-square-foot center where Bella Luna Cafe is on East Central.
“I just think it would be a big advantage for us to have that street presence,” Jasnoski says.
Her current store is behind another business, she says.
Jasnoski thinks the walk-in traffic will be better, too.
“There will be a lot more people than where we’re at right now.”
Jasnoski sells fresh fruit and vegetable bouquets, chocolate-dipped fruit and smoothies. At her new space, she’ll add self-serve frozen yogurt and toppings.
She’ll have two yogurt flavors to start.
“I’m really excited about that,” Jasnoski says.
She hopes to be in her new space by the first of July to capitalize on yogurt sales.
Adam Clements of Builders Inc. handled the lease.
“Now that is fully occupied,” he says of the center.
Clements says Fresh Fruit Bouquet is a great addition to College Hill Plaza.
“The recipe of tenants we have over there is really complementary to each other.”
Clements says the 100 percent occupancy is a good sign in what’s been a difficult retail market.
“That’s kind of a glimmer of light.”
