I used to like that yogurt place. But they always ran out of everything but the candy. Hope it works out.

It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who open a restaurant, or several of them with ZERO experience in the business, especially in Upstate NY. $10 frozen yogurt and $15 salads didn't work, so let's change our name to the "House of Food' and offer Cici's pizza! Really, Cici's pizza? Look, if a church can't turn a profit with that garbage, what makes Johnny think he can? I would answer that for you, but we all know the answer.

NYS is a tough enough place to do business, let alone a restaurant or bar. Just wait till the min. wage goes up. Save your money Johnny, or just piss it away, because at this point, that's exactly what you're doing. Look, I admire those who try to change the area, and open businesses, but this is a joke. Much like the 'playroom' thing on Court Street. Let's loan them a bunch of cash to open...What are the 'leaders' of the business community thinking when they grant these loans? Rant over. Good luck Johnny...you're gonna need it!

John we love ya, but when does somebody convince you it's time to throw in the towel?
Your yogurt shops were excellent in the begining, but became progressively worse quickly.

Partnering Chi-Chi's is a HORRIBLE idea.

In doing so, your brand just took an enormous hit. I ate there a total of twice. The first time, bad. The second, HORRIBLE!

Stop throwing good money after bad!

Minimum wage will have no bearing on your success or failure, it has to do with the fact that your fad concept is now passe.

What's her name should have stepped out front of City Hall and yelled "Yo Johnny", problem of that vexing concession stand at the COW arena woulda been solved.

You need not get your skirt in a bunch over Johnny. He knows his poop.

It has nothing to do with haters and everything to do with being a good community business, enough said figure out the carnage he has left behind they are public docs

Considering this 'new' partnership is just a warmed-over version of Johnny's last idea, I'd say the prospect of success are slim.
But who knows? Maybe Spazzano will start a Renaissance!
