What is it you are craving on this chilly winter day?
Perhaps some peanut butter and Dutch chocolate froyo with marshmallow sauce? Maybe a hot and sweet Vietnamese coffee? Some taro milk tea with boba? Or as you come off of the slopes, a trip to a hot chocolate bar to warm you up from the inside out?
If the above make your tastebuds tingle, then you will be happy to know that after three years, The Swirl, a family-owned business in North Bend, has expanded to Snoqualmie. The SnoValley Chamber of Commerce reports that The Swirl is the only business that actually expanded during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Swirl owner Tamara Davidson shared her excitement.
“We are happy, excited, and nervous about our newest adventure, expanding The Swirl with a new location. We knew that when we started the first location in North Bend three years ago that our dream was to share our love of all things froyo with our community. That adventure has been amazing, so I would say we are off to a good start!” she said.
“We were not looking to add another location, but the opportunity presented itself, and we decided to take the leap. Many would say it’s not really the best time to be opening up a new shop, but life doesn’t always happen at the best time.”
“Having a shop in North Bend and Snoqualmie gives me the chance to meet many more in our community, to hear more stories from the kids, experience more giggles of glee for favorite toppings, and now choices in both froyo and boba,” Davidson said. “We are extremely thankful to everyone who has been there to support us, my heart is warmed from the inside out — or is that the hot chocolate bar?”
